Hair Dye Allergy Compensation Claims

Hair Dye is a product which is used by a growing number of people across the globe. It is estimated that the hair dye industry generates profits of around 7 billion dollars a year. This figure is mainly achieved as a retail over the counter and retail sales of hair dye products. For many years the majority of hair dye products were used by women, however over recent times the men’s market has tripled. The main reason for using hair dye is to cover up the grey hairs that are a sign we are getting old. However, it is also commonly used by men and women who are looking to change their appearance.

While in the majority of cases hair dyes are completely safe occasionally failure to apply them possible allergies can lead to problems. If you think you may have suffered an allergic reaction due to the negligent behaviour of a hairdresser or the incorrect labelling of a product by a manufacturer we are here for you. Call our expert team today to find out how we can help you make a successful hair dye allergy compensation claim.

What Generally Causes an Allergic Reaction to Hair Dye?

Hair dye allergies are typically a result of the chemicals that are found within the majority of hair dyes. The industry standard is to ensure all products carry a disclaimer advising consumers to carry out a patch test on the skin prior to full application. However, it has been proven that this methodology is unscientific and does not provide any adequate data around allergies. This means it cannot accurately determine whether or not you will have an allergic reaction to the product.

Most hair allergies are the result of exposure to Paraphenylenediamine (PPD), Hydrogen Peroxide or ammonia. These are the most prominent ingredients in binding the dye to the hair. However, it is possible for someone to experience irritation from the actual dying elements. An allergic reaction may be immediate or occur as result of long term use. Realistically though the prolonged use of ammonia on the skin is never healthy and will often cause adverse and unhealthy results. If you feel you have suffered an allergic reaction to hair dye through no fault of your own we can help. To start your hair dye allergy compensation claim call our friendly team without delay.

    What are the Symptoms of Hair Dye Allergies?

    There are a great many ways in which an allergen can affect your body. Typically you will experience the same type of symptoms that you would from any allergen which include:

    • Skin Irritation
    • Rash or swelling where the Dye was Applied
    • Pain or burning of the skin
    • Nausea or Vomiting
    • Headaches
    • Blurred Vision

    In the case of a more severe allergic reaction it is possible for a person to suffer anaphylactic shock, hair loss, bleeding from the follicles and scalp. In rare cases where the allergic reaction is extremely severe it could lead to loss of life. If you have suffered an allergic reaction to hair dye despite following procedures correctly or as the result of the negligence of a third party we are here for you.

    How Do I Know if I Should File a Claim for Hair Dye Allergy Compensation?

    When making any claim for hair dye allergy compensation you need to demonstrate that you adhered to the manufacturers guidelines while using the product. You will also need to show that you suffered injuries or harm as a result of using the product. The best way to show this is to seek medical attention from a doctor or nurse. You will need to ensure that you receive documentation stating that the hair dye was the cause of your current condition. If possible you should take pictures of any injuries you have sustained as proof. 

    If you followed the instructions on the box to the letter and still had a severe reaction it is possible you may be entitled to compensation. This will include using a portion of your skin as a testing area prior to use. If you have taken all precautions and still suffer an allergic reaction you may have grounds for compensation against the manufacturer or distributor of the product.

    If you have had to seek immediate treatment after the application of hair dye (either by yourself or from a salon), you may have grounds for a claim. This is especially true if the hair dye was applied by a salon, and you were not advised as to the possible side effects of using such dye.

    If you have been using a particular product for a prolonged period of time without issue, then suddenly suffer an allergic reaction we can help. For your claim to be successful you would need to show that the product was either defective or has introduced new chemical elements that are not disclosed on the packaging.
