This is in response to your haircolor question but not specifically for the color product you mentioned. If you are experiencing an allergic reaction (i.e. itchy, red, swollen, blisters) this is evidence of contact dermatitis and I suggest that you visit a dermatologist if it persists. Also, perform a skin patch test with every product EACH TIME BEFORE you use it. After repeated exposure to hair coloring chemicals you may delevop a sensitivity to them, with the most likely culprit: PPD. This chemical is present in ALL permanent hair color products and many demi-permanent products. Some people also are irritated by the color developer (peroxide). You may experience an allergic reaction to even "natural" products (a very vague term that does not exclude chemicals). Only total avoidance of these chemicals will assure no more allergic reactions. Be aware that haircolor products that are chemical free WILL NOT lighten natural haircolor, but only deposit a color the same level or darker. This color deposit will be temporary and the color will fade after several washes.
I also agree that all haircolor is best left up to the professionals in the salon, and this includes performing a patch test. Many salon professionals shy away from performing these tests as it delays the service and requires an additional salon visit. Ask for them anyway. The additional visit will allow you to get a thorough consultation and most salons do not charge for this.
Clients should be aware that it entirely possible to delevop an allergic reaction to a product even though that same product has previously been used without a reaction. A new allergy can appear overnight, quickly becoming severe and a health hazard.
The majority of people can safely use hair color products and will continue to do so for their entire lives. These are safe products; however, once you experience an allergic reaction to these chemicals, your health comes into question. Try using hair extensions in various shades to get the high-lighted effect. Speak to your hair stylist about other options.
