Hairsprays are common asthma triggers for some people.

Today we’ll teach you some important stuff about this trigger 🙂

How can hairsprays trigger asthma?

Hairsprays contain various chemicals that can result in allergic reactions:

  • Parabens;
  • Imidazolidinyl urea;
  • Quaternium-15;
  • Phenoxythanol;
  • Formaldehyde;
  • Artificial fragrances;
  • and others.

Did you know that hairspray inhalation can lead to coma? Yes, it’s true.

What can you do to avoid this kind of allergy?

  • The best and obvious tip we can give to you is to opt for a wig. However, wigs can irritate your skin! Make sure you test it on before leaving it on for long periods.
  • If a wig is not an option, make sure to use the temporary color hairspray in a ventilated area!
  • Wash your hair as soon as you get home with a mild shampoo.
