Ponekad čak i zdravstveno i ekološki osviješteni ljudi mogu proći kroz noćnu moru zahvaljujući prikrivenim kemikalijama u modernoj kozmetici, a upravo to je slučaj 35-godišnje fitness bloggerice Chemese Armstrong. Iako na svom YouTube, Instagram i Facebook kanalu obično dijeli savjete za vježbanje, zdravu prehanu i prirodnu kozmetiku, nakon stravične alergije na kanu za bojanje kose odlučila je upozoriti druge žene da ne nasjedaju na priče o posve prirodnoj kozmetici, piše Daily Mail.
If you been following me for a while you know that I tried to be as transparent as possible. You will also know that my 100 days of just juice and smoothies has been very important to me. Today is day 100!!! The past couple of days has been extremely rough. I mention before that I die my hair with Henna because of my research and what I was told that it was supposed to be completely natural and chemical free but it wasn't and I had a severe allergic reaction as you can see from the pictures. I'm not posting this for any advice or any negative comments. I'm fully aware of what these pictures look like. I had to endure this nightmare. If you do not have anything nice to say please keep strolling. I want to let everyone that pray for me or send me well-wishes know what was going on. I was in severe pain from my scalp burning and itching with my face completely's swollen to the point I was unrecognisable. The most scary part about this whole thing is that my eyes was completely swollen shut where I couldn't see for 2 days. My doctor was afraid that it was going to start affecting my breathing which that didn't happen and as of today my eyes are open and I can see again but my face is still very swollen (I don't look like myself). I'm not in any more pain and I feel things are heading in the right direction. I hate that this had to happen but now I'm even more focus on making sure that my health is number one priority. Once I get back to looking like myself again I will make a more detailed video on my YouTube channel. Thanks again for all the love, support, and well wishes.
Chemese je bila svjesna svoje alergije na PPD (Paraphenylenediamine), česti sastojak u bojama za kosu te je upravo zato pažljivo birala načine bojenja sa minimalno ili bez kemikalija. Nakon posjete frizerskom salonu u Teksasu savjetovali su joj korištenje prirodne kane.
Vrlo brzo nakon tretmana vlasište ju je počelo svrbiti, a lice naoticati. Njezine su oči bile potpuno zatvorene te nije ništa vidjela puna dva dana, a liječnik se plašio kako bi joj alergija mogla utjecati na disanje.
Srećom, to se nije dogodilo te joj je lice i dalje napuhnuto, a tek nakon devet dana počela je ponovno sličiti na sebe. Srećom, više ne osjeća bolove te apelira na druge žene - "ne treba olako vjerovati ljudima ako vam kažu da je nešto posve prirodno".
Osim natečenosti, rekla je kako joj se ljuštila i koža te da joj je sada prioritet više se čuvati.
