The an epidemic of Para-phenylenediamine (PPD) Sensitization
For one hundred years, people have been exposed to PPD in an increasing number of products, and often at increasing levels. The generation of people who in their teens dyed their hair lack to be fashionably punk or Goth, or got “black henna” temporary tattoos have a statistically higher probability of being allergic to chemical hair dye.
