My sister and mother regularly gets her roots done with the Nice& Easy home kit for blondes.

My mother made the formula tonight form the box, shook it and put it on my sisters head and she said within a minute that the stinging was really bad. Usually she says, the stinging is only mild and not that big a deal. But the pain was so excrutiating that she just ran upstairs to take it off and she looked awful when she came down, her hairline and ears was scarlet red and her eyes were all bloodshot.

My mother put the rest of the soloution on her hair and it worked fine for her.:confused:

Does anyone have any advice, she's a bit calm now but its still stinging a lot. It didn't say anything on the box, it only said about an allergic reaction but she's used the product 1000's of times before.

We donlt know of we should go to hospital

Bloodshot eyes? Eek. Maybe you should go to the hospital. Even though she's used that same brand over and over, that batch could've been tampered with or messed up or something. Better safe than sorry.

I'd seriously suggest going to have it checked out, usually before dying your hair no matter how many times you've had it done before, you should test on the skin near your hair.
I can't really think why it's had that reaction however if they've used the same one a lot of times before.
Does your sister use any other products on her hair?

She seems fine now, she's not complaining as much.

We're letting her stay here for the night and we're gonna take her to the doctors in the morning if it's still bad.

Her scalp is really red though where we have applied the soloution. I;m just frightened if we wake her up and her hair has fell out:)

Nope, she's always stuck with nice&easy. She's going to Liverpool on Thursday because her cousin woke from his coma, so she wanted her roots done, either way she demands she is going to get it doen again at the hairdressers.

EDIT: My mother says that she thought the soloution was watery when she applied it. So I don't think she's mixed the ammonia properly and might have been concentrated:(

She did shake it when she mixed them right?

But i personally would never do my hair at home, hairdressers no best. ;)

Yer but she reckons there was barely any air in the bottle to allow it to move around properly. Even if she didn't mix it properly, it didn't affect her:confused:
We're gonna take her up the QE now anyways, she cannot keep her head on the pillow.

That's most likely it.

Do that, and let us know how she gets on.

Sounds like her skin began to respond to that chemical as in overdosed with regular usageI presume... do visit doctor/specialist asap!

There is a 24 hour NHS telephone number you call about this type of thing. You get a medically qualified person on the other end who can advise you on whether you should seek hospital treatment or not.

NHS Direct: 0845 4647 is the number.

The website is www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk

Keep the Nice and Easy box just incase your sister needs to see the Doctor. They might want to see it.

It sounds like your sister will be OK, but it always pays to make sure.

I hope she's OK. :)


Oops Edit: I see you're taking her to the hospital. Good luck.

your sister has had an allergic reaction. before she dyes her hair she needs to get a skin test which can be done at salons. this will tell you if its fine to dye your hair. just because she can dye it once doesnt mean it will be ok the next. your sister will be fine but she really needs to get skin tests done in the future as it can get worse if she has another reaction like that
a guy in the paper dyed his hair brown all the time then when he went to dye it again he had an allergic reaction which swelled his head and was bigger than a football he then had to take steroids to calm it down and to make his head go back to how it was.
its not a funny thing when it comes to dye especially home kits which is why i advise your sister to get skin tests if she wants to dye her hair.

Oh look, another drama from AnthonyShock. What a remarkably fantastical life you live.

... her hairline and ears was scarlet red and her eyes were all bloodshot.

This is a little more than faintly ridiculous.

Tune in next week for the next exciting episode when Sis sues L'Oreal for making such incredibly dangerous chemicals and gets an out of court settlement for 10 million - because she's worth it.

Either that or else she scratches her scalp too much leaves cuts. That's happened to me and it's hurt very much!

She's fine. We didn't wait long. Your right it was a reaction. She has to keep a cold flanel on her head to try and keep the heat down.:)
She has to use a different hair dye and she's gutted because she cannot dye her hair until her skin has healed.

Anthony... Should I recount as to how many so called "Non-exaggerated" threads you have made? Including the "Everyone in my school is pregnent!" thread?

Seriouly, you so need to catch up on the "boy who cried wolf" story and keep the moral of it in your head the next time you put up a thread.

Give her a slap from me for being so vain. Health first, appearance later.

Allergies can go really bad really quickly. She must have been in a lot of pain. Glad she is okay :)

Yeah, and you kept telling me to do mine at home! :p
And you also told me that nothing could go wrong. XD

What would you have done if I had a really allergic reaction to the hair dye? (You DARE say you would laugh, because I know even you wouldn't do that XD) :p

@ Net - :vlol:

This is why on every leaflet that comes with hair dye it says, that even if you've used it a million times before do a test area first to make sure there is no adverse reaction.

I've read reports of people who have had similar violent (and sometimes very damaging) reactions to hair dye products - even ones they've used before without any trouble. Better safe than sorry.
