Horror of hair dye

CASE 1:Horror of hair dye for Charlotte Higgins

PRETTY teen Charlotte Higgins was rushed to hospital "looking like Elephant Woman" after an allergic reaction to hair dye.
BEFORE: Charlotte Higgins
PRETTY teen Charlotte Higgins was rushed to hospital "looking like Elephant Woman" after an allergic reaction to hair dye.

The 13-year-old blonde did a 48-hour allergy test before using Clairol Perfect 10 to go dark brown.

Despite the test showing negative her face blew up like a balloon two days later.

She had trouble breathing because of swelling to her windpipe, her eyes were forced shut and her neck was burned.

Dad Scott, 39, took her to hospital where she was given anti-histamines and steroids to stop the swelling.

When that failed she had to return for more treatment.

Last night she was beginning to return to normal five days after seeing docs.

Lorry driver Scott, of Whitchurch, Bristol, said: "It's an absolute disgrace. My daughter followed the instructions right the way through, yet she still came out looking like Elephant Woman.

"Her nose and forehead grew to five times their normal size. This has left her emotionally scarred."


Mum Michelle, 35, added: "There should be clearer warnings on the packet."

Clairol apologised and urged Charlotte to contact them.

CASE 2: Horror of hair dye for Paula

BEFORE: Paula Pratt
A WOMAN had to fight for breath as her face swelled up like an "elephant woman" in a terrifying allergic reaction to hair dye.
Paula Pratt, 38, was rushed to hospital when her head and neck ballooned and her eyelids were forced shut.

She was taken to A&E where doctors treated her with steroids and antihistamine tablets.

Married Paula had used a £5 Clairol Nice 'n Easy kit to turn her greying hair a chocolate brown.

She said she followed the instructions and carried out an allergy test before going ahead.

Paula had no obvious problems when her sister helped apply the dye and she went to work as usual the next day.
But that evening her head, face and neck began swelling. Her eyes closed and her scalp stretched and began to weep.

Paula said: "The swelling started travelling down my throat and it was hard to breathe."
She went on: "I went straight to see my GP.
"When I got there I looked like an alien with one side of my face going out like a rugby ball.

"He took one look at me and sent me straight to A & E. By the time I got there the other side of my face had swelled up too.
"I couldn't see my ears. The swelling must have gone out about three inches on either side. It was terrifying. I looked like the elephant woman."

Paula, a production manager from Bognor Regis, West Sussex, has now recovered and said she would not seek compensation from Clairol.

But she added: "I want to make people aware of the reactions you can get."

A Clairol spokeswoman said: "Allergic reactions are very rare. However, we recommend all consumers conduct a 48-hour test before each use of our colourant products."


CASE 3 :Horror of hair dye for Abigail
BEFORE: Schoolgirl Abigail Colbourne ignored instructions to test hair dye first
Pain ... Abigail struggled to see after her eyes and head swelled

A SCHOOLGIRL was left "looking like an alien" after an extreme allergic reaction to a hair dye.

Abigail Colbourne, 15, dyed her brown locks darker but didn't do a patch test, as advised.

The Clairol dye caused huge swelling. Abigail, of Sydenham, South London, said: "My eyes were glued together, and my head swelled up. It was terrifying."

Docs reduced the swelling but mum Joanna Leech said: "People should be aware of the effects of these dyes."

Clairol said such reactions "are very rare".


UPDATE: NOV 2011
Mother left in a coma after using hair dye



A mother who collapsed and stopped breathing minutes after applying a home hair dye kit was in a coma last night and has been given only an 8 per cent chance of survival.
Julie McCabe, 38, may have suffered a severe allergic reaction to a chemical in the L’Oreal Preference product.
She remained on a life support machine last night, three weeks after she used the dye, as her family continued a bedside vigil.
Doctors have warned her devastated husband Russell that even if she survives she will almost certainly be permanently brain-damaged.
No definitive link has yet been made with the L’Oreal product but doctors caring for Mrs McCabe, an estate agent, have asked for the kit and gloves she used so they can carry out tests.
L’Oreal has offered to assist the medical staff with any information that may help save Mrs McCabe’s life.
It is feared the chemical para-phenylenediamine (PPD) – present in 99 per cent of all hair dyes – may be linked to her condition.
Her family, who say she dyed her hair every six weeks and had never experienced any reaction previously, is now considering legal action.

They have contacted a solicitor representing others who have suffered reactions to PPD.

BANNED IN FRANCE

PPD is banned in France, Germany and Sweden, and a U.S. study has linked exposure to it to increased rates of bladder cancer. Under EU rules, in Britain it can constitute 6 per cent of a hair dye.

It is a colourless compound but it achieves a rich colour when it reacts with oxygen contained in ingredients in hair dye, such as hydrogen peroxide.

The chemical is used in many permanent hair dyes because it binds firmly to the hair and does not wash out.
Allergy to it is rare, affecting one in 250,000 people, and in most cases the effect is a mild rash. But reactions can be severe, causing serious skin irritations or even anaphylaxis.

An allergic reaction does not necessarily start the first time a product is used. It can happen after several uses.

Dye users are told to do a ‘patch test’, applying a small amount of it to their skin 48 hours before treatment every time they use it.
