Dangers of Hair Dye For MenAs the emphasis on appearance continues to envelope our sense of self we areinvesting more and more money into how we look, men included. Qualified,professional hairdressers and beauticiansare skilled at administering treatments and charge the appropriate cost for their services. But what happens if you can’t afford their services?
It is this catch 22 that has seen a rise in non-qualified self-taught hairdressers coming to the forefront and takingadvantage of this vulnerable market. Menare especially vulnerable as they are less experienced in the world of hair and beauty.
Hair dye, whilst in the right hands can turnback the hands of time; it can do significant damage if administered incorrectly. Many hair dyes contain lead acetate which is a known carcinogenic. If your hairdresser isn’t aware of this, which many ‘cowboy’ hairdressers aren’t, and applies the product to your scalp any broken skin or skin irritations can be severely exacerbated.
Another element of hair dying which menmay not be aware of is that patch tests are supposed to be carried out 24 hours prior to appointment to check to see if you are allergic to the product. This test is a small dot of the dye being placed behind your ear and then checked later for a reaction. ‘Cowboy hairdressers’ are unlikely to administer this kind of care. If you havesuffered at the hands of a hairdresser whohas not followed professional procedures it is possible to claim hairdresser compensation.
Men may also not be aware that over dyingyour hair can actually result in hair damage and in extreme cases bald patches appearing. If you were not made aware ofthese facts and have continued to dye your hair and are now suffering the consequences you may be entitled to compensation too.
We are not insinuating that men who havetheir hair dye are stupid. But we are tryingto highlight the potholes you could fall into along the way if your hairdresser isn’t a professional.
