My initial inclination is that if there is anything to this, most of the absorption would be through the scalp, rather than the hair itself. So perhaps one could use a comb or something as a barrier and leave a quarter inch undied... and that way just look like it had grown out a little, if you wanted to play it safe.

Do they identify different kinds of hair colorings and which are more dangerous? A friend of mine wanted to get some hair dye and we went to the store and there were a gazillion different kinds. Maybe some are relatively safe? "Hair dye" seems like an awfully broad category.

This sounds like maybe there are some hair dyes that don't have those things in them:

Many hair products contain endocrine-disrupting compounds and carcinogens potentially relevant to breast cancer. Products used predominately by black women may contain more hormonally-active compounds.

Sounds like a personal choice. Best of luck whatever you decide.

Do they control for age? My initial thought would be that people who use black dye most likely use it to cover greys. Older people are at more risk of cancer...
