The FDA, and More On Bleach Allergies

Happy St. Valentine's Day! I just got off of the phone with the FDA, and I finally was able to speak with a real person. The phone chain put me through to a guy in partnerships who is going to actually get back to me today about the PPD allergies. Cross your finger, but don't hold your breath...

On a second note, I was doing some reading about the hair bleach, and thanks to the availability of industrial hazards and reporting, I found that there actually is a problem with two of the main ingredients in hair bleach. These are: Ammonium Persulfate, and Potassium Persulfate. They are known allergens, I found the information by way of another channel, and now it will come up easily by google search. It works the same way that the PPD does, once you are sensitized, you can not use it. It is also used in pool chemicals, and in stronger concentrations, spas and hot tubs.

To anyone who lives near the Cicero area, look for the ad in the Cicero Life Magazine, we are running this half page for one year. If you go to the Syracuse Basketball games, look for the Salon Taro ad on the monitor when you go in at the front gates, that's where the ticket booths are. ;)

I hope that you are keeping warm where you are, we had a high of 37 degrees yesterday, woo hoo! Happy Friday, everyone!
