Signs and symptoms of a hair dye reaction
For cases of mild irritation, you may find that your scalp, neck, forehead, ears and/or eyelids become irritated and inflamed after using hair dye.
The skin exposed may become red, swollen, blistered, dry, thickened and cracked. You may feel a burning or stinging sensation.
Symptoms will usually appear within 48 hours, although strong irritants may cause your skin to react immediately.
If you're one who is allergic to hair dye chemicals, your scalp and face may feel itchy and start to swell.
May also trigger symptoms throughout your body, such as itching, a nettle rash, and generally feeling ill.
These symptoms may not develop until hours, or even days, later.
A severe allergic reaction that develops within minutes is known as anaphylaxis, or "anaphylactic shock".
Signs of anaphylaxis include:
itchy skin or a raised, red skin rash
swollen eyes, lips, hands and feet – the eyelids can swell so much that the eyes close
feeling lightheaded or faint
swelling of the mouth, throat or tongue, which can cause breathing and swallowing difficulties
tummy pain, nausea and vomiting
collapsing and becoming unconscious
