I would like to know what is your opinion about my self-treatment technique.
It worked 100% for me, I overcame an mild hair dye allergy, but I am aware that every
person is an individium with different body react.
Don't judge me, don't say that I should not have done it, if you didn't experienced any
allergy, please do not post. Be open minded and please don't say that I am spamming:
I developed PPD allergy when I was 22 years old after 4 years of hair dyeing on black.
(I am male ginger and I didn't like my natural hair colour).
Once I had developed allergy, nothing helped. My scalp became itchy more and more and I
started loosing hair. No extra shampooning or creams helped. I think one should not
expect to ever use chemical dye ever again ever if only mild reaction was developed.
I was researching and after a year I found another solution, indigo - indigofera
tinctoria - natural hair dye - India plant used for dyening hairs, cottons etc.
Due to my natural hair on which indigo did't adhere well I had to dye my hair every 10
days. I used pure indigofera tinctoria with destilled water heated to 60 degrees and
with non-iodic salt on extra-clean hair.
After a year, suddenly the same thing happened as it happened when I was using chemical
dye. My scalp became itchy more and more from week to week until my hair
started to fall out again. I was very depressed. Indigo also can not be removed
entirely from hair. Finely I had to shave myself to avoid any further itching and
redness of my scalp. Once you develop allergy on indigo it is there. I tried to dye
just a patch of my hair after a year and allergy was still there.
However, I didn't like my ginger hairs and started to explore again. Tried also dyeing
with walnut shells with the same allergy again. I didn't dye my hair for 2 years and
even with no dying on my hair, slight allergy was developed every few months. I had
very sensitive scalp and had to forget on any dyeing.
Imagine how frustrating all that was. Not only I lost part of my hair during allergy
reaction (for which I did'nt know they will grow back), I also didn't feel
well with my ginger colour of hair.
But I didn't gave up. after two years I found that allergy can be treated with allergen
injections but was very expensive in Slovenia.
It sounds strange what I did (I was very desperate), but it helped.
I red that if you raise your alergen level in your blood, the body would stops
Indigofera tinctoria is a natural plant used also for healing in traditional medicine
and is considered nontoxic to human body.
I again partly dyed my hair (on the back, so I was able to cut them at eventual allergy
I sniffed (snorted)indigofera tinctoria powder through my nose, two times a day for a
month. The taste was not very pleasant but alergen absorbed trough mucous membrane.
After first sniff, itching on the back stopped. But developed again. I sniffed a small
amount of pure indigofera tinctoria powder when itching started. After I month I
