Amidst our panoply of serious concerns, let me lighten it up--our topics, not my hair)--with this question:
Have any of you who was coloring your hair before chemo done serious research on whether there IS truly safe color?
Before treatment, I wore my dark brown hair, nearly shoulder-length, pulled back most of the timel. How much of that brown was MINE and how much came from AVEDA, I couldn't, after a few years, be sure.
But my own investigation has shown that even Aveda pemanent, and semipermanent, colors contain ingredients that are suspect, possibly carcinogenci!
I gather that henna may be safer, but does it work without brassy orange tones? And are there any SALONS that administer henna to spare us the mess at home?
I just read that John Masters Salon in New York promises a truly safe dye by summer.
In the meantime, if I can't find a truly safe product, I will stay au naturel or keep wearing my litlle turbans Our health has to trump all!
