头颈外科专科医生林世源说,头顶上的毛发可是个有生命的组织,故此,仍会受到外来因 素如化 学染发剂的伤害,这不单导致头发脆弱和易于断脱,形成秃头,同时也会提高罹患头颈癌的几率。“若是非要染发不可,应慎选纯草本植物制作的染发剂,或干脆自 制天然染发剂,减少身体‘吸毒’致癌的几率之余,也可因此避免过早秃头。”

药草染发剂与化学染发剂

染发是一个古老的艺术。在古代,染料从植物中获得。一些知名的染料有如以下,

指甲花 (henna)
靛青 (indigo)
番瀉葉(senna)
姜黄 (turmeric)
油甘子 (amla)
其他包括黑核桃壳 (black walnut hulls),赭红色 (red ochre)。
Shikakai and Brahmi

化学染料的发展可追溯到1860年发现的PPD与空气产生的化学反应,如今,染发剂已是大家熟悉的产品。

染发的副作用

化学染发剂的原理是使用化学物质去除,更换和掩盖发干内的自然色素。使用这类化学染发剂会导致多项不良影响,这包括头皮过敏,发根断裂和发质变色等。

Dye Techniques

  1. Rinse hair and leave it moist.
  2. Prepare the herbal hair dye by mixing the dye powder with 4 parts of warm water, i.e 50 gm sachet to mix with about 200 cc of warm water.
  3. Stir the mixture until it forms a easily applicable paste (not too thick as to make it difficult to apply or too watery that it starts streaming down the face!!)
  4. Massage the paste into the root of the hair and also apply it to the whole length of the hair (by massaging it into the root we are also nourishing the hair as the herbs are beneficial to the hair follicles.)
  5. When the hair is fully covered with the paste, put on the shower cap. This is to ensure that the moisture due to evaporation from the scalp are trapped, thus enhancing the dye efficiency.
  6. After a minimum of 1 hour preferably 2 or 3 hours, rinse the dyed hair
  7. If you do not mind the "green" smell of the herbs, rinse without shampooing but if you must use only mild shampoo.
  8. The hair will look great and peaks after 24 to 48 hours.
