Chemical in Hair Color Linked to Hair Loss

Ethanolamine(Also known as MEA)

(Also known as MEA)


Has the health of your hair deteriorated over the years while pursuing the perfect hair color found in #allure magazine? Does it look dry, brittle, lifeless, and over-processed? Has your hair become thinner and finer? You may have answered “YES” to all of the above!




There is a chemical called MEA found in most hair color that causes damage to your hair. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), hair color containing MEA has been known to lead to hair loss! You may be asking yourself why MEA has been injected into hair color in the first place. The answer…MEA is responsible for pigment penetration. MEA replaces ammonia, if you take out ammonia, you have to replace it with something and that something is MEA. What you haven’t been told is MEA is a known carcinogen and is not natural to the environment – and just as importantly, not natural to your hair!



Begin by asking a Professional to use MEA-free hair color on your hair. This will stop the dangerous cycle and get you back on the path to healthy hair. There are several hair coloring solutions that DO NOT contain the damaging MEA chemical.

In addition to having a professional use MEA-free hair color on your hair, follow a well-balanced diet and consider taking a multivitamin to ensure that you are not deficient in any nutrients. Always use a comb or special brush when your hair is wet. Be sure to use a moisturizing conditioner to ensure that your hair remains hydrated. If you use hot styling tools (e.g. blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons), it is important to use heat protectant products.
