Paraphenylenediamine (PPD) is a chemical substance that is widely used as a permanent hair dye. It may also been found in textile or fur dyes, dark coloured cosmetics, temporary tattoos, photographic developer and lithography plates, photocopying and printing inks, black rubber, oils, greases and gasoline.

Paraphenylenediamine (PPD) is a key ingredient of hair dyes, used for color enhancement. Only few studies have been done on systemic PPD poisoning. Common clinical manifestations of systemic toxicity are, cervicofacial edema, chocolate brown colored urine, upper airway tract edema, oliguria, muscular edema and shock.( 11 ) The biological results were dominated by rhabdomyolysis, metabolic acidosis, acute renal failure and hyperkalemia.

The reactions to paraphenylenediamine appeared to be ‘ideosynchratic’, with only some individuals having a susceptibility or predisposition to ‘hair dye poisoning’. Today we would recognize the ‘poisoning’ as being an allergic reaction but in the early part of the twentieth century studies into allergies were still in their infancy. Paraphenylenediamine is now considered to be a very potent contact allergen.

The main cause of hair dye allergy is the presence of a chemical called paraphenylenediamine (PPD). The darker permanent hair dyes, which are usually black in color, contain paraphenylenediamine in larger degree than the hair dye of other colors. The temporary or lighted colored hair dyes contain this chemical in less quantity. However, paraphenylenediamine is found in most hair dyes available in the market.

The chemicals in hair dye cause all the adverse allergic reactions. This particular chemical is known as Paraphenylenediamine (PPD). PPD is found in about 66.6% of hair color. The hair color kit generally contains two bottles. One bottle contains the PPD based hair color which is white and colorless. The other bottle contains hydrogen peroxide. It is the chemical which helps to develop the hair color. It breaks the natural pigment melanin in hair and replaces it with PPD. The latter reacts with hydrogen peroxide and goes through a partial oxidation. This causes the hair color to bloom and shine. The partial oxidation causes the allergies. Had the PPD got the opportunity to fully oxidize, the allergies would not occur.

Although phenylenediamines (PPDs) had been discovered in 1854 by A. W. Hoffman, it was not until 1883 that a patent was granted to P. Monnet et Cie of Paris for the use of paraphenylenediamine as a dye. The dye was used in the fur trade but by the mid 1890s was also employed by hairdressers both in Europe and in North and South America to dye human hair (Wall, 1957, p. 497-498). PPD is an oxidation hair dye that requires an oxidizing agent to bring out the colour. Initially the dye and other agents were mixed by hand in the salon but in 1910, Gaston Boudou, a well-known hairdresser with salons in Paris and London, produced the first commercially available paraphenylenediamine hair dye under the trade name ‘Inecto’.

Ammonia not only negatively affects the cuticle of the hair, it also damages the amino acid or protein called Tyrosine which is found inside the hair shaft. Tyrosine is responsible for producing melanin (the natural pigment in the hair shaft). When the Tyrosine is damaged, the hair’s ability to hold onto color is greatly reduced (or eliminated altogether). When you introduce color into the hair shaft without damaging the Tyrosine the color lasts longer because the color has something to bond to.

ammonia in hair dye has been linked to cancer…. So that’s why our hair products contain no ammonia. Ammonia is a super strong disinfectant. It is incredibly damaging to hair and can cause serious allergic reactions. It is used in a lot of household products like bleach and toilet cleaner. Why would you use products with ammonia on your hair.

Why Does Ammonia Hair Color Cause Breakage? Ammonia is an alkaline, or basic, substance with the chemical symbol NH3. The three hydrogen atoms and one nitrogen atom that make up ammonia form a gaseous or liquid substance that is highly soluble in water, colorless and strong-smelling. In the past, ammonia was utilized as smelling salts to revive fainting victims. The chemical now is used in household cleaners, fertilizers and hair dyes. Ammonia on the skin can cause a burning sensation, while inhaling it can actually lead to fainting.

Continual use of chemicals can wear down the outer coating of the hair, causing it to become brittle and break. The overall look to your hair is a shabby, unhealthy look.   There is no doubt that ammonia is a corrosive toxin that damages the hair cuticle, impairs the sebaceous glands thereby denying the hair of its natural moisturizer sebum, and renders hair follicles dormant.

About NewLife Today (formerly NewLife@AmpangPark)
At some period in our lives, most of us have wished for better health for ourselves and for those we know and love. Some way to regain the vitality we have lost.
We want a safe and effective method to combat illness. A way to repair our bodies instead of just treating the symptoms with drugs.
We are sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Wishing to start all over again. Go back to the way we once were physically, at an age before "modern living" lifestyles and bad habits took their toll. Can it happen?
Maybe having someone to show us the how to honestly fight and win the battle against diseases like cancer and heart attack. To defuse the ticking time bombs of high blood pressure, failing kidneys and tired livers. Is there a fighting chance?
At NewLife, we have seen these wishes come true over and over again, it would be irresponsible and unkind not to help, not to share what we know.
Backed by real life testimonies from people who have benefited, we hope you will find, together with us, the way to make your health wishes come true.
Wishing you the pink of health, contact us for free health consultation.
