Hi,

I've been a hair stylist for 25 years. I started studying PPD and its toxicity when I, and my clients, started having reactions in 2008. My free time went to research; clinical trials, contacting hair color companies and chemists.

I wrote an article and had a difficult time getting it published. I'm still researching and getting it out to the general public.

I welcome any questions.

Sincerely,

Dianne Nola

Dianne,

I purchased some Cosamo hair color called "Love Your Color" from Amazon. This color
has NO PPD, NO peroxide, & No Ammonia. The color came out incredible and I had No burning,
no itchiness, no irritation. I also went to the companies website at www.cosamousa.com
and they sent me some free samples. I was using Clairol Loving Care hair color for over
10 years and Clairol discontinued the hair color around 1 year ago. I did not know what
to do but I'm grateful for this new hair coloring. Also, I realized that Love Your Color
from Cosamo is made in the USA which made me feel a little more comfortable. Just letting
everyone know about this new hair color.

Thanks,

Dianne,

I have been doing research for about 8 and a half years now. I have contributed to some articles that have been published, but I am working on a documentary. I have had yet to find anyone who is in my field who will even entertain what I am saying, let alone agree with me. (mostly, I see eyes glaze over...) Please contact me, I would love to chat. E-mail would be easiest for me.

Kimmy1972,

I am very glad that you found a color that worked well for you! One of the road blocks I have found on this board, and on another that I help people, is there are many different degrees of allergy. There is no clear way to know how sever you allergy is, so if you don't know, you should always do a 3 step patch test. I do a test patch on the forearm, below the elbow, leave the color on for 15 minutes, and wait 3-5 days. I repeat the process if there are no red, itchy, welts, marks, hives, breathing issues, or anything like that. 3-5 days after, I do one more, behind the ear. 3-5 more days, and you will know if it is safe.

I can show you a quarter size ulcer, oozing, swollen, and unbearably painful, that was 3 months old from a patch test with a color that was supposed to be "PPD free" I never even found out how long it took to heal. All color has something in it to color, and anyone can react to it. If you read through all of the posts, you will see what I am talking about. Some of the women even have become allergic to the ethanalomine, which is the solvant the color is dissolved in. It is related chemically to PPD, so it isn't a big leap-but then it also opens a bigger door. Contact solutions, amber colored alcohols, the things that I am reading about now are affecting these people in every aspect of their life.

So, I will research this color, and post the chemicals in it so everyone will know. I am glad you had good results!
