Did Jackie Kennedy died from hair dye chemicals?
Though death due to an allergic reaction to hair dye is relatively rare, death from cancer is less rare. The National Cancer Institute suggests that one out of five of all cases of non-Hodgkin`s lymphoma among women are due to women`s regular use of commercial hair dye products. This is the disease that killed Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who used the more damaging darker dyes. Breast, bladder and other cancers are also linked to the use of PPD.
The dye para-phenylenediamine, used in virtually every commercial permanent and semipermanent product, was shown in 1986 to be carcinogenic to the breast following oxidation with hydrogen peroxide, precisely as these products are used by women.
Further evidence of the cancer risk from hair dye use comes from studies of hairdressers that have provided clear evidence both men and women are at increased risk for bladder and other cancers.
Finally, hair dyes may also pose a risk to children whose mothers used them shortly prior to conception or during pregnancy. In fact, the risk of childhood cancer could be increased by as much as tenfold.
The alternatives to commercial hair dyes are not perfect, the use of henna (you can find different types, not all are red!!!!) mixed with walnet husk and Garance powder are the most natural. I recently choose to use that kind of hair dye…since I had my first gray hair at the age of 21…25 years of regular chemicals application (without awareness of dangerosity though) is more than enough…
You can visit my post to get one diy hair dye recipe with a photo showing the result on my post: follow my roots.
Two hours of laying…I find it a little bit long…but it’s ok…

The Spoiled Bee was created in 2017 by a mother/daughter combo who are passionate about home made natural cosmetics. After numerous travels to all corners of the globe, they have jointly accumulated a wealth of knowledge and first hand experiences in a wide variety of natural cosmetic and beauty ingredients. From the well-kept beauty secrets of the Pacific Islands to ancient French beauty remedies.
We believe nature and beauty is not one size fits all and that is why The Spoiled Bee brings you only the very best of these natural ingredients to create your own custom made cosmetic at home. Ranging from skincare, haircare and mineral makeup ingredients to reusable accessories, we believe nature has provided us with everything we need to be naturally gorgeous! Free of any harsh chemicals, 100% cruelty free, never tested on animals, environmentally friendly and ethical, what more could you ask for?
Through our blog and social medias pages, we will also aim to bring you the very best recipes and advice to help you and inspire you every step of the way.
A little about our name, the Spoiled Bee comes from the desire of protecting our beautiful bees and of course spoiling them! Did you know scientists agree that if all bees were to disappear from the face of the earth, humanity only has about 4 years left to live due to the lack of pollination? That is why we have decided to offer among many other products and ingredients, a range of bee products which also happen to have amazing properties for your body, skin and hair.
Now we know you are probably wondering how encouraging the commerce of bee products will help the bee population? Well, over the last few decades, bee products have unfortunately and often rightly been associated with harsh harvesting and mass production to keep up with the growing demand. We will never be doing that in a million (or trillion) years! We make sure that all our bee products are harvested in a sustainable and respectful manner by carefully selecting trusted bee keepers.
All the hives are located in flowery fields and forests, away from all modern pollution and chemicals and the beekeepers always make sure our bees have more than enough honey left for winter. The more hives, the more the bee population of the world will thrive once again so please help us help them!
Lots of Love
The Spoiled Bee Team Xx
