About allergic reactions to hair dye

As more people in the UK choose to colour their hair themselves, the risk of individuals experiencing allergic reactions has increased. Although the vast majority of products are thoroughly tested to ensure they are safe, allergic reactions do still occur. Damage caused by hair dye and other colouring products includes:

  • Skin irritation and rashes
  • Dermatitis
  • Swelling in the face
  • Pain
  • Breathing difficulties

Injuries aren’t just likely to happen to those who have dyed their hair for the very first time. We have handled cases where people have used the same dye for a number of years but have simply experienced a defective batch.

Who is responsible?

In many cases, particularly those where individuals applied the dye to their own hair at home, the manufacturer can be held responsible for any injuries that are caused by the product. However, they can also be held responsible for reactions that occur if salon staff have applied the colouring correctly.

Hairdressing salons can be held responsible for reactions to products in certain circumstances, particularly when staff leave products on the hair and scalp for too long, use products incorrectly or fail to conduct a patch test before dying a customer’s hair.
