|Are you allergic to chemical hair dye? |
An allergy to chemical hair dye usually begins gradually; first you feel some itching or burning. The symptoms gets worse every time you dye your hair with chemical dyes. On average, you can dye your hair about sixty times before you develop an allergy. If you use dark dye, or if you started when you were a teenager, this will probably happen sooner, and the reaction may be more severe.
80% of women dye their hair with chemical hair dye at some time. People often think chemical dye must be harmless because its widely sold, and so many people do it.
All permanent oxidative hair dyes have para-phenylenediamine or some variant of that chemical.
Why was para-phenylenediamine, found in nearly every chemical hair dye, declared "Allergen of the Year" by dermatologists?
When para-phenylenediamine touches your skin, it passes through the skin very quickly, and can cause delayed allergic reactions, similar to poison ivy reactions. Can you apply hair dye without getting any on your skin?
Not to make you paranoid or anything, but HERE is what has happened to other people who use chemical hair dyes.
Blinded and hospitalized by chemical hair dye: head began to leak pus.
Skin weeping, unable to breathe or see from allergic reaction to chemical hair dye

Perri Jackson's Story
People often think that packages that say "natural" or "henna" or "Organic" are safe.
Hair dye manufacturers often "greenwash" products containing para-phenylenediamine: this means they associate their product with healthy things so you will believe it is harmless.
EVERY permanent chemical hair dye contains para-phenylenediamine, or the same chemical by another name.
Take your magnifying glass with you when you buy hair dye! The print is very, very small, but it IS THERE! Para-phenylenediamine goes by other names: p-toluenediamine, p-Phenylenediamine, paraphenylenediamine, 4-phenylenediamine, phenylenediamine. Look for them!
If you are allergic to para-phenylenediamine, you should also avoid p-diaminobenzene; 4-aminoaniline; 1,4-benzenediamine; 1,4-diaminobenzene.

It says so on the package.
Gosh, that's hard to see, isn't it? Look closer! I put a yellow dot so you can see! Para-phenylenediamine goes by other names: p-toluenediamine, p-Phenylenediamine, paraphenylenediamine, 4-phenylenediamine, phenylenediamine.
