Today I decided to try bleaching my arm hair with the Nairs home bleach kit that’s for your arms, face and bikini region. Your suppose to do a 1:2 mixture which I did but obviously wasn’t good enough. I’m a hairdresser so I should of known better then to bleach my own arm hair however as you can buy this at Coles or Woolworths I assumed it would be fairly diluted. I was very wrong! I had an allergic reaction that caused burning and itching which resulted in a rash all up my arm!
I’m not saying that the product is bad but I’m advising everyone to make sure you do a spot test and make sure you don’t have sensitive skin like me!
Your probably thinking what does this have to do with hairdressing? It’s the same with your scalp! Make sure you know what products your hairdresser is using on you and let them know if you get any burning or itching because those are chemicals entering your body that can be seriously harming.
Below is a picture of my arm , however iv seen this happen to scalps when they have sensitive skin!
