Allergic contact dermatitis
A growing % of permanent hair dye users develop an allergy, mostly in the form of an allergic contact dermatitis with a redness and itch in the head area. A systemic reaction with an involvement of the whole body skin and other organs, although rare, is possible in severe cases. Understandably dermatitis of the hands affects many hair stylists who are making bare skin contact with these dyes. The main cause implicated in hair dye allergies, whether on the scalp, face, neck, back or hands, is a substance commonly known as PPD. The most common symptoms is an itchy scalp or burning of the scalp within a short period of time after applying the dye. Sometimes symptoms may develop days or weeks after the hair dye treatment.
This condition affects people with dry and rough skin and may be caused by a variety of allergens. Hair dyes and hair sprays often cause problems. The dye (paraphenylene-diamine) causes itching and oozing at the forehead, neck and behind the ears. A severe reaction involves the whole face and extends on to the shoulders and the rest of the body. ColourWell contains natural medicinal ingredients that might prevent irritations.
Using chemical hair dyes might aggravate scalp psoriasis. ColourWell could be safely used by people who are suffering from psoriasis.
