HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Dying hair too often linked to breast cancer
  2. 14% rise in breast cancer chances in women who dyed their hair too often
  3. Black pepper can darken your hair naturally

Research shows that women who dye their hair too often expose themselves to higher risk of breast cancer. Ideally, hair can be dyed only two to six times in one year. Also hair dry products used should have as many natural ingredients as possible like beetroot, suggests a breast cancer surgeon. Prof. Kefah Mokbel is a breast cancer surgeon at the Princess Grace Hospital located in Central London. He reviewed past studies to check for the correlation between the hair dye and breast cancer. He noted a 14% rise in breast cancer chances in women who dyed their hair too often.

Prof. Mokbel further explained by saying that women who need to dye their hair too often should use more natural products. A research conducted in Finland also stated the same. However, Sanna Heikkinen of the Finnish Cancer Registry stated that there is no conclusive proof that hair dye is the agent which is spiking this risk.

Here's how you can dye your hair naturally at home.
