Hi LoriL
About 5% of permanent hair dye users develop allergy. Redness and itching is a common reaction to hair dye. PPD or ParaPhenyleneDiamine is usually the cause of such allergies, but not always. Do you know how to do a patch test? In your husbands case you must do a patch test before you use any color because the swelling, oozing is severe. The things that come to my mind about your husbands reaction to the hair color are:
1-Did you use the correct peroxide?
2-Did the reaction occur right away or a day after? How Long?
3-How old was the color that you used on your husband?
4-Is he on any new medications?
These questions are just the beginning because you should be cautioned that your husband might have become allergic to "natural" vegetable dyes as well. And an FDA study that found lead acetate (the active ingredient in gradual darkening products such as Grecian formula) to be potentially toxic.
For now I'm going to recommend that you use a different technique for applying the color. Apply the color on a comb and comb it through the hair without touching the scalp. You can do a balayage technique for a salt & pepper result or apply on all the hair the way we used to apply the celophanes in order not to stain the scalp. My favorite color for men is Color Camo By Redken. They make a dark ash or dark natural ash the will take only 10 minutes to process and will cover very well.
