It sounds strange what I did (I was very desperate), but it helped.
I red that if you raise your alergen level in your blood, the body would stops
Indigofera tinctoria is a natural plant used also for healing in traditional medicine
and is considered nontoxic to human body.
I again partly dyed my hair (on the back, so I was able to cut them at eventual allergy
I sniffed (snorted)indigofera tinctoria powder through my nose, two times a day for a
month. The taste was not very pleasant but alergen absorbed trough mucous membrane.
After first sniff, itching on the back stopped. But developed again. I sniffed a small
amount of pure indigofera tinctoria powder when itching started. After I month I
overcame an allergy and was able to dye all of my hair with no itching or hair falling
I was very happy with my experiment, but I didn't wan't to share with anyone because
one might think I am giving hazardous advices.
I know well how frustrating itchy scalp and allergy can be and it was nothing compared
to slight risk of indigofera toxicity (I did'n found any bad effect).
I don't encourage anyone to do the same as I did. One should get allergen injections
under medical supervise if develope allergy on all hair dies but still doesn't want to
give up hair dyeing.
After your body stops reaction on allergen, it is permanent solution. Now I have been
using indigo on my hair for 5 years without any reaction. My hair grew back.
Please contact me on email@example.com if you want to share your hair dye allergy
story with me.
Perhaps the self treatment technique would work also for real henna or lawsonia inermis
allergy (red hair dye). I have not tried and I have no idea about lawsonia inermis
I used this technique because I developed mild allergy on indigo which only showed on
my scalp as irritation, itching, hair break.
Attention: If you have serious allergy on indigo attacking your eyes, respiratory...
STAY AWAY FROM ALLERGEN, IT CAN BE DANGEROUS AND FATAL!!!
Official allergy treatment similar to mine is called sublingual immunotherapy,
but allergen is put under the tongue instead.
