"PPD FREE" HAIR COLOURANT ... TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE?
PPD's (para-phenylenediamines) are dyes which have been used in hair colourants for many years. They provide realistic colour results and are also extremely good at colouring grey hair. PPD's are also used to dye and colour many other household items as well such as clothing, upholstery fabric etc, so we are all exposed to these dyes on a daily basis. It has been known for a long time that a very tiny minority of people can experience an allergic reaction to these dyes which tends to manifest itself when colouring their hair, as the dye's are active during the colouring process. This is why a patch or sensitivity test to ensure problem free colouring is recommended prior to every hair colouring session.
We are aware that there are some products available now which state they are "PPD FREE". Particular caution should be taken when considering these products as they frequently contain PTD's or para-toluenediamine sulphate dyes in place of PPD's. PTD's come from the same family as PPD's and as such are just as likely to trigger an allergic reaction in sensitive individuals. Our own research has also shown that individuals who are already sensitive to PPD's are invariably equally sensitive to PTD's.
A number of shades within the Daniel Field™ Natural Colours range have always been PPD free as such, for example, shade DFP0073 Dark Warm Blonde however, we feel that to market these shades as a new alternative is misleading. Until such a time as a proven alternative dye family is available, we will continue to offer Daniel Field™ Natural Colours range as it is. And, as with all of our other products, we provide a FULL ingredient list for each shade so you can be certain of what you are buying prior to purchase.
So stay Colour Safe, always check the full ingredient listing in your chosen hair colourant, always follow the instructions carefully and always always perform a patch test prior to applying it!
