|Caution: You may find these in your hair (products)|
I have the best hairdresser.
You know you're in good hands when you can just regress in the chair and nod soporifically at the talented lady who is whispering sweet, comforting words about how she's going to make you look amazing and it will really suit your face and it will add life and layers and bounce and you can just relax and....zzzzzzz.
Yes, I love my hairdresser.
She recently removed a goodly amount of my barnet (what's with my writing today? I've gone all Beatrix Potter crossed with Shakespeare with a touch of cor blimey guvn'a East Ender. Weird.) and I'm all revamped and re-energised, etc.
Anyway, ever the sucker for expensive hair products, I enquired after the serum she'd used to make my locks look so sleek.
And imagine my horror to find...it had Macadamia nut oil in it!
Well, in all my born days (sorry, I can't stop) I never would have thought to check whether a hair product might have nut oil in it.
Because it seems a bit weird to put an anaphylaxis-inducing allergen into a hair product doesn't it?
And although I'm not allergic to nuts, my daughter has allergies to hazelnuts and Brazil nuts and the whole nut subject makes me pretty twitchy. So I wouldn't be lining up to run my nut oiled fingers through her hair.
The message here people, is that nuts could be EVERYWHERE. Even on your head.
So next time you're dozing off in the hairdresser's chair, remember to do a quick speed read of the hair product ingredients first.
Which is a bit of a depressing thought isn't it?
But better than hives on your head, or a blues and twos ride to A&E.
Forewarned and all that...
Has anyone else had a 'nut in weird location' experience recently?
Come on, hit me with your nut horror stories and let's all be scandalised and worried together!
