Itchy Scalp and Hair Dyes – Why Your Hair Dye is Burning Your Scalp
What is the connection between scalp itching and hair color?
Hair dyes can cause allergic reactions that typically lead to an itchy, red, burning scalp. This problem is usually relatively easy to solve if you act promptly, that is, when you first notice irritation or something not quite right on your scalp.
Unfortunately, many people are not always aware of the connection between their irritated scalp and hair dyes, or they buy special shampoos and conditioners to treat their condition without realizing that many of these well-known products contain very aggressive chemicals that can make the condition of their sensitive scalp worse and even worse.
So what’s in hair color?
In general, the chemical phenylenediamine (PPD) is the most malignant cause of an itching problem in scalp and hair coloring products. This is known as a contact allergen and can lead to an unpleasant, painful and irritated scalp – or, medically speaking, to sensitizing dermatitis. It is absorbed into the skin and causes severe irritation. When inhaled, it can cause a sore throat and bronchial asthma, and in extreme cases has led to blindness from eye contact.
It is commonly found in many dyes, as well as in leather and fur dyes, various printing inks, and photographic products. Some manufacturers of these products have explicitly stated that PPD should not be used directly on the skin. However, most manufacturers of PPD often do not do so and do not educate consumers and end-users about the risks associated with this compound.
Other harmful chemicals found in dyes are hydrogen peroxide and ammonia. Most brands of hair dye and even some milder salon dyes contain one or more of these chemicals.
What can we do to solve the problem of scalp itching and hair dyes?
First, I advise you to ask for a “sensitive scalp” color the next time you go to a salon. There are many brands that are NOT harmful and can leave your hair in a much healthier state due to their milder ingredients and conditioning properties.
Secondly, be sure to use a natural pH-balanced shampoo that doesn’t contain harmful chemicals such as sodium laurel sulfate (SLS) and propylene glycol. This will only exacerbate your scalp itch problem.
Finally, you can try a natural remedy for scalp itches, such as chamomile, which is excellent for relieving scalp itch and is readily available and 100% natural.
You can buy chamomile tea from your local health store or make your own chamomile tea by simply boiling half a liter of water and adding 2 teaspoons of chamomile flowers. Chamomile oil is also wonderful when applied to itchy scalp sores and is the perfect treatment for problems caused by scalp itching and hair dyes.
Are there natural hair dyes?
Henna is a natural dye that thickens (wraps around) hair while safely coloring it. Therefore, all henna-based dyes should be fine (as long as they do not contain chemicals such as the dreaded phenylenediamine).
Henna naturally gives hair a red, reddish-brown, or dark brown color, but it can be mixed with other herbs to obtain other colors.
It can be purchased alone or already mixed, ready to apply, and is one of the few things that can successfully cover gray hair.
Also, unlike chemical dyes, the color builds up and deepens over time, so if you dye it a few times a year, it will become deeper and richer.
