Hair sprays keep hair in place and protect from moisture. They are used by men and women to look good and presentable. But are they safe to use? Do side effects?

The old types of hair spray made of lacquer (shellac dissolved in alcohol), while the most recent containing polymers or elastesse - a liquid elastic that keeps the hair stiff and firm without snapping. Other ingredients are a solvent (often alcohol), conditioners, and perfumes.

Aerosols have propellers. Those used in the past were 11 and CFC 12, which are not flammable. However, both were banned by the Food and Drug Administration U.S. because of the threat posed to the ozone layer of Earth.

Ozone is a form of oxygen that protects us from harmful rays of the sun. The ozone layer is about 30 miles above the Earth and blocks the sun's ultraviolet rays that are responsible for sunburn and skin cancer.

Scientists believe that the use of hair spray is a factor in the thinning of the ozone layer. This, he said, explains why skin cancer has become more common and why sun is more harmful than before.

Because it is very unstable, ozone is easily destroyed by pollutants such as methane, nitrogen oxides and chlorofluorocarbons ¬ carbons (CFCs or short). The latter was widely used in aerosol cans, air conditioners, refrigerators, cleaning solvents and foam plastics.

In view of this, manufactures have sub ¬ stitute CFCs with other engines, but not hair spray that is safe. The reason: new propellant gases are flammable and can explode in your face. Never use when you are smoking or near an open flame.

"Hair spray can make your hair more flammable, either by depositing a layer of potentially flammable ingredients and increasing the amount of fire support cir ¬ oxygen circulating through su (mocked rather than before it is dry. The result of the ignition is moderate to severe burns to the hair and upper torso, sometimes resulting in death " Added to the editors of Wikipedia.

The perfumes and movies on certain products can cause allergic reactions as skin rash, itching, burning eyes and sneezing. In Ealing ¬ thrusters can be fatal, while the plastic film can damage your eyes if you accidentally spray them.

The long-term use of hair sprays has also been linked to various lung conditions as thesaurosis - the accumulation of unusual amounts of normal or foreign sub ¬ stances in the body.

To be on the safe side, use of hair sprays sparingly and in a well ventilated room.
