    is this a bleach?  or adding color? anytime dying hair a small spot should be tested as even if you did this for years you can become sensitive, i had my hair tinted for yrs then all a sudden it burned my scalp to the point of scabs, found out was from drinking caffeine and eating choc that morning before had hair done.

    get off all caffeine and no choc day before, and pay attention to medicines she is taking

      May I ask how you concluded that caffeine and chocolate were involved?  I've wondered if chocolate may affect my susceptibilities.  Thanks.

    Jon,

     

    As some of the other members have pointed out, what type of hair treatment she was using is very important.  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose her over the internet, but I would think the first concern would be to make sure all of the dyes/chemical have been rinsed out and that the skin/hair is clean.  Depending on the type of reaction, some type of Neosporin might help, but if she is in considerable pain, I would suggest visiting your physician or a dermatologist.

     

    Did the sores heal quickly, or did they take quite a while?  Did you ever find out what was in the dye that caused her injuries?

     

    Best of luck,

    James
