Last night, after *dying my hair, I fell asleep while watching a movie. I woke up a little later with a headache and a burning pain around my mouth, sideburns and temples. When I looked in the mirror, my lower-lip looked as swollen and red as that tee-shirt of Mick Jagger’s lips. I should have taken some benedryl, but I stupidly just went to bed. Luckily I awoke in the morning feeling better, but still very sore.
The solution? For the first time in about ten years I picked up my clippers, removed my goatee and sideburns completely and scrubbed the skin clean with hypoallergenic wipes.
At least I won’t have to buy expensive and messy dyes any more.
My skin still itches and burns.
*I had used L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss: Ebony and I have been dying my prematurely grey hair for a few years now with no real adverse effects until this sudden intolerance. I was luckier than this girl though.
