Eyebrow Tinting Is A Potentially Dangerous Beauty Procedure

The potential dangers of eyebrow tinting treatments are perhaps best illustrated by the fact that ‘permanent’ hair dyes for both eyelash and eyebrow tinting continue to be banned in the USA, with authorities citing the risk of serious eye damage and even blindness. This has been the case since a number of women were blinded following allergic reactions to certain hair dyes during the 1930’s. The same restrictions do not apply in either Europe or the UK, and for this reason a significant number of women continue to be injured every year following adverse reactions to chemicals contained in tinting products.

Chemicals In Tinting Solutions Can Damage Eyes, Hairs & Skin

Colour additives in eyebrow tinting solutions work in combination with oxidising agents (normally hydrogen peroxide) to change the colour of the eyebrows. It is ingredients such as peroxide, ammonia, and particularly p-phenylenediamine (PPD), that are the most hazardous when used on patches of hair and skin around the eyes. Caustic chemicals of this kind can severely damage the cornea if they enter the eye, and may also damage both surrounding skin and the roots of delicate eyebrow hairs. Beauty therapists must take care not to spill dye products during treatments, and must also remove them at the right moment, to prevent eyebrow hairs from drying out excessively.

Allergic Reactions Can Be Triggered By Eyebrow Tinting Products

The chemical ingredients in eyebrow tinting products may also trigger allergic reactions on contact with the skin. Symptoms of such adverse reactions include rashes and blisters breaking out on the eyelids and face, which may be disfiguring for an extended period. Damage to eyebrow hair follicles is also likely to cause hair loss. The skin may be permanently discoloured by an adverse reaction of this kind, and will also be more susceptible to infection. Beauty salons are expected to carry out a skin patch test, 24-48 hours before an eyebrow tinting procedure, to determine a person’s sensitivity to the dye, and to minimise the risk of an adverse reaction.
