Woman experiences horrific allergic reaction from HAIR DYE - showing deformation in her face

The image of this woman will serve anyone a lesson that you should always do a patch test on your skin before using a new beauty product. 

Image-sharing site Imgur shocked its users when a friend of the victim shared a terrifying allergic reaction to her hair color, looking at the picture could be seen unbelievable face and head transformation which then lasted for five days.

"So, my friend had a pretty ridiculous allergic reaction to hair dye," the caption read.

This allergic transformation usually caused by Paraphenylenediamine (PPD), a chemical substance that is commonly used in hair dye, which supposed to make the color last longer.

Usually, at salons, before they are doing for dye job they do a patch test on customers. However, this woman is obviously didn't do the patch test. She assumed all hair dyes were the same.

PPD can also be found in henna tattoos, dark-colored makeup, photocopying and printing ink, black rubber, oil, greases, gasoline, and more. While not normally dangerous, if you are allergic to PPD, it can cause serious health issues.

"Symptoms of this allergic reaction can range from the less severe itching and rash to the more severe anaphylactic shock, which can be fatal," experts said. "Some of the more severe reactions include swelling of the face and tongue, shortness of breath, and drop of blood pressure."

Doctor's Advised:

In applying hair dye at home, you should always start by washing your hands. Next, unscrew the bottles in the box and mix a small amount of the tint and the developer into a container. Recap the tubes. Use a cotton swab and apply a small dab of the dye to the bend of your elbow and leave it uncovered for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, rinse the spot with warm water and allow it to air dry. Be sure to leave it uncovered for 48 to 72 hours. Waiting the longer time frame if you've had issues with skin sensitivity in the past.

If you are someone who tends to react to certain ingredients, it would be better to do more than one patch test.
