Cons of using Flammable Products
Flammable products are not only safety hazards but some of them are health hazards too. There is a fear of the products catching fire or setting fire to the work place. One has to be extremely diligent and alert. Human error can have far reaching effects.
Sometimes these products contain certain chemicals to which prolonged exposure can cause several health issues. It can be mild or serious depending upon the route and quantity of exposure.
The route of exposure means how we came in contact with such materials. Did we inhale it or did it come in direct contact with our skin or with body fluids. If we have inhaled it, then it causes respiratory problems for us and so on. In case of hair replacement products we come in direct contact with them. It is absolutely unavoidable and there’s no other way about it. Thus we are risking our health. It’s like inviting the plague over for solving the cold and fever issue.
We always advise to use non flammable products when available. There is less tension to store and stock them. Importing them is also a non issue. They are as good as, and sometimes better than the flammable products available for hair replacement. As we have always stood by the statement that non flammable or water based products are more beneficial in the long run for your health and skin.
