Hair Colouring And Unnatural Products As A Cause?

Hair Colouring And Unnatural Products As A Cause?

As fibro effects more woman than men, do you think the un natural hair coloring would be a cause? Absorbed into the scalp, affecting the brain and then the spinal cord. CNS and a cause of the flare ups?

I know we treat the symptoms of pain, but if I could find the cause, this disorder would be history.

When I had breast CA and the test showed that it was not hereditary but environmental I stopped coloring my hair. I changed as much as I could to remove all environmental toxins. Now I have fibro because the radiation therapy after CA lowered my immune system, which I knew was already compromised because of allergic reactions to antibiotics. So many factors to consider and eliminate to finding the root of the problem. Boggles my foggy mind. I just try to eat healthy and keep away from products filled with chemical additives, including hair dye.

I have never colored my hair so that theory doesn't work. I rarely have a permanent so that is out also.

LOL - NO - women have more complex hormonal systems that get out of balance with stress so the feedback loop to the nervous system is altered

I also had physical injury from a Motor vehicle accident. I was really doing quite well for many years until Fibro was diagnosed. So I am trying to rule everything out. Thanks for sharing.

I can't use a professional dye. The fumes make me sick and causes a cycle of pain. I use one that washes out. It is easier on my system. However, I am debating to go to go natural. I have more white hair and I have done it in the past, but if I go natural I will have to get my hair cut. Only time will tell.
