Have you had an allergic reaction as a result of colouring your hair with dye containing para-phenylenediamine (PPD) ?

Some people have reported an almost immediate sensation of severe burning, along with a swollen face and tongue. Others claim more gradually developing symptoms with damage to the hair follicles and hair loss.

In another example a young girl died shortly after colouring her hair with a home dye kit. A post mortem examination has been carried out and results are still awaited to see if there was any PPD connection.

Many hair-dressers do not carry out tests on small patches of scalp before applying the dye to see if there is an allergic reaction. Also there should be more prominent warnings on home dye kits.
