Chemicals in Popular Women’s Hair Dyes Cause Cancer. Use Coffee Instead
According to British scientist, most of the chemicals found in the popular hair dyes are connected to cancer. 87 of 100 patients that have used hair dye for a long time have breast cancer. The rates for ovarian cancer grow up by 70 percent for woman who color their hair 1 to 4 times in one year.
Natural techniques for hair dying don’t have long lasting results, but at least they can strengthen the hair and they doesn’t damage it. National Cancer Institute has found that there are over 5000 chemicals in the conventional hair dyes, and many of them are carcinogenic. Coffee possess beneficial properties and its completely natural product.
With natural coffee mixture you will get the shade and shine you wish for, and it will even help your hair to grow. One study, issued by the International Journal of Dermatology in January 2007, found that coffee really helps with hair growth.
How to use coffee to dye your hair
– Make one really strong organic coffee (I prefer this one), if it’s possible espresso. Some of the non-organic coffees contain chemicals.
– Leave it to cool down.
– Mix 2 tbsp. of organic coffee with 2 cups of natural conditioner and 1 cup of cold prepared coffee.
– Put this mixture on your hair and let it stay for about 60 minutes. This will give to your hair chocolate color with no damage on it.
Simple Coffee Rinse
First shampoo your hair and then pour coffee over it. Let it stay for 20 minutes. Wash the coffee out of your hair with apple cider vinegar (it will seal in the color also). Then wash it off with warm water.
Maybe you won’t see the wanted results for the first time. In that case, repeat the process for a few days in a row to let the coffee enters into the parts of your hair.
