The difference between store vs salon bought hair dye products without knowing the ingredients. Certainly, there are products claim they use more natural/less harmful ingredients but often hard to verify. Comparing scalp and hair, it is less harmful to apply only to Hair,already dead tissue, as scalp is like cutaneous barrier and can potentially absorb those chemical/toxin.
