Earlier this year, Love Island star Megan Barton-Hanson told the public about her hair dye disaster that prevented her from going to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California.

On ITV’s This Morning, Megan explained that she decided to darken her hair at home with a self-apply hair dye.

After a few hours of applying the hair dye, Megan felt her throat becoming sore and noticed slight swelling to her face. Not knowing she had suffered an allergic reaction, Megan went to sleep and woke up to severe swelling and tightness to her face. As a result, she went to visit her GP immediately who sent her straight to hospital to receive treatment.

A hair expert that appeared on the show highlighted that hair dye reactions are very common. At Actons , we’ve also been contacted with an increased number of claims relating to hair dye disasters. This experience means that we understand just how stressful they can be.


What causes an allergic reaction to hair dye?

The chemical Para-Phenylenediamine (commonly known as PPD) is generally what causes allergic reactions to hair dye disasters. PPD makes hair dye permanent however, it is also an irritant and an allergen.


What should you do if you have an allergic reaction to hair dye?

  • Wash the hair dye product off immediately.
  • Seek appropriate medical attention.
  • Follow the advice given to you by your doctor, including any medication or treatment.
