Healthy Hair Color

Healthy Home 2008, Spring 2008

Risks
Many gradual hair darkeners (such as Grecian Formula) have tested positive for lead acetate. Lead is a known nervous system toxin.

Alternatives
If you must use a gradual darkener, wear gloves, and do not touch bathroom surfaces, so that the lead compound is not inadvertently spread to other parts of the house. It's best to avoid these products; visit cosmeticsdatabase.com for better options.
