Hair and skin conditions such as eczema, sebborheic dermatitis and psoriasis may be aggravated by these products. Applied to a normal scalp they rarely cause problems. A damaged scalp is much more sensitive to Hair chemicals.
Hair Dyes are 2 pack products that when mixed together lock the dye into the hair and also the skin of the scalp. Hair tints are usually one pack products that last several washes. These are quite mild and do not often cause problems
Hair perms have 2 packs which first break the bonds holding hair molecules together then a second pack to reform the bonds when the hair is in place. This locks the hair into a "Perm" as people with perms usually wash their hair infrequently, the perm itself usually isn't a problem but the scalp should be washed at least 3-4 times a week to remove oil ,scale and as good hygiene.
Salon Dye and Perm products are the strongest and thus can worsen the scalp problem the most if you are sensitive to the chemicals in them. Do-it-yourself kits contain lower strengths of the same substances as salon products.
Tints are a one pack product that coats the hair for 1-2 washes and cause less scalp problems but require frequent washing and application.
Lead containing products to turn grey hair to a dark color slowly are such brands as "Grecian" they usually contain lead acetate and sulphur. Although I believe lead products should be avoided due to the toxicity of lead, I have rarely seen these products cause problems.
The problem is traces of dye or perm chemicals remain in the hair and scalp longer than after the color (or Perm) has disappeared. If you suspect a product is aggravating you condition you should allow the product to grow out and assist removal of the chemicals from your scalp by frequent washing.
