This is why you ALWAYS patch test

You should always do a patch test when you are using a new hair color. not just new dye, but a new color! There are tons of chemicals that can fuck you up if you don't know that you're allergic.

Holy crap that is scary! I have dyed my hair for about 10 years now and have never done an allergy test. I might start doing that now.

@ Deranged- I never did patch tests either for the longest time but when I started going to Beauty School, patch tests always!

@ Yllsa- your hair is probably grateful. ^_^

This is so true! Dying hair at home is so much more dangerous and risky than people know. Girls are just too excited to have a new hair color, so they plop the dye on their head and they end up having an ugly color. But I knew just bad hair color couldn't be the most awful outcome.

I should actually start doing a patch test now! I have found that I'm starting to find more things I'm allergic to.

Been dying at home since I was like 6...started with vegetable dyes though, so I guess that's good?

Sucks for her though. :(

That is sick, I am always so careful and patch test everything I use since I have so many skin allergies.
