You May Be Allergic To Your Natural Hair Products.

I've been natural since 1994 , long before it was 50 billion blogs and tutorials on YouTube dissect natural hair " movement ." All that I have learned from my hair was done by trial and error . Many errors, as a matter of fact . Until last year, I made ​​a rare visit to the barber , but I was too lazy to do my own laundry and games, and even then , I always bring my own products I know work on my hair. I including the products I use in my hair because of allergies. As a child , I discovered that I was allergic to a lot of fresh fruits and was marked by a allergies orally. So far , there are fruits and nuts that I know that I can not eat fresh , or I go into anaphylactic shock.

Two weeks ago , I went to a specialist to have my natural hair is washed and twisted hair. In fact , I forgot to bring my own shampoo and conditioner , but I was familiar with the products they use. After I sat in the dryer for about 30 minutes, she rubbed oil on my scalp. I was happy with my hair when I left the room.

About 24 hours later, I was covered in hives .

When I began to see my stylist , I mentioned the various " natural " products I could not use because of my allergies. Shea butter, lemongrass , and tea tree oil are all on that list . Unfortunately, the oil she used that day was the tea tree oil in it . It was not something Benadryl could not handle , but it could have been avoided . I advise anyone to test a product before use to ensure that they are not allergic to it . In countless forums hair, I have seen women complain of rashes , hives , swelling , only to discover that it is an allergic reaction to her new favorite natural hair product.

Below is a list of the most common ingredients in some popular natural hair products symptoms :

Tea Tree Oil:

A common side effect of the tea tree oil is a skin irritation , especially if applied to broken or dry areas of the skin. Skin irritation may include tingling , itching , burning redness or inflammation. In some cases, resistance to tea tree oil full can also cause mild to severe rashes develop the treated skin. Establish a patch skin test is recommended before application. Tea tree oil can also cause severe light for those who are allergic to the plant an allergic reaction . If you are allergic to the ingredients in the same family as tea tree oil, nail , guava, eucalyptus, or allspice , you may be more at risk of having a reaction allergic to tea tree oil, the American Cancer Society states. The tea tree oil is allowed to sit and age , as well as it also has a chance to break into components that are most likely to cause an allergic reaction. Signs of mild allergic reaction may include hives , rash , itching , or congestion. More serious allergic reactions can include the same characters , that the reaction is slightly possible cramps , diarrhea, dizziness, Flushing , vomiting , swelling or fatal anaphylaxis .

The problem is that no one seems to recognize the Shea butter as allergen or sensitizing agent. Shea comes from the nut of a tree , which is linked to the rubber tree , which gives latex , a common allergen . If you have a latex allergy , you are likely to become allergic to Shea . Ironically, Shea butter is advertised as a cure for chapped skin, rashes , chapped lips, eczema and psoriasis , but in fact the cause of these conditions, which learned of this cross. Unfortunately , I know only too well from personal experience . It is important to note that latex sensitization ( a similar requirement for latex allergy ) worsen with cumulative exposure to latex and similar chemicals . People who become severely sensitized can advance beyond contact dermatitis , the development of many food allergies and even suffering anaphylactic shock when exposed.

Coconut oil :

Allergies to coconut and coconut oil are considered rare. They can take two forms: a food allergy or contact allergy. A nut allergy is not necessarily linked to allergy coconut . There are higher chances of developing an allergy to touch things that contain coconut oil to develop an allergy to eat it with coconut oil in them. In both cases, your body reacts to certain proteins that are thought harmful. Your immune system reacts by releasing an antibody called immunoglobulin E, and he tries to fight against the invaders nut " dangerous " Coco. When it comes to food allergy to coconut oil, probably your symptoms itching , hives , nausea , vomiting , diarrhea , difficulty breathing and swelling of your lips and tongue . Contact allergy to coconut oil - which is often found in moisturizers , shampoos and other cosmetics - can cause a rash or blisters that develop in a day or two to get the allergen itching .
