    Poor thing!
    She needs to switch to henna and indigo! (Or manic panic or something different!)

    I have allergies, and have had itchy, irritated scalp before with hair color. Nothing horrible, but enough to make me wonder about it.

    Have any of you had trouble with hair dye? Was that your primary reason for switching to henna/indigo?

    I had a reaction the first time I dyed my hair black with a commercial dye. I have been well aware of PPD and it's dangers for a very long time. Plus my hair was too thick for the amount of dye and I had weird streaks and spots, it would be a couple years before I thought about dying it again.

    The second time I dyed it black I used an indigo based commercial dye that is now out of production, it was made by one of the common US hair dye companies in a line called natural instincts. The natural instinct amazon indigo was a gorgeous color and lasted well, and no reaction. (You can see a pick of the result in my recent blog entry)

    I am playing with the idea of dying the last 8-10 inches some fantastic unnatural color, but don't want to bleach it first, so I doubt I will ever get good color, though. I tried to indigo my hair two years ago, but I guess the dye didn't release or take or something and my hair had a barely grey-green tinge for almost a week and it washed right out.

    Oh gosh! Good thing that nothing worse happened. We all know how this ends when the reaction is really extreme. :'(((
    I haven't had any reaction to black dye myself yet, but stopped using it more than 8 years ago ad certainly will never go back.
    I love indigo and my deposit dyes

    How scary! I used conventional dyes for nearly 10 years, and though I didn't get any severe allergic reactions, the itching was pretty horrible the last few times I dyed. I stopped after reading about a young woman who died after getting an extreme allergic reaction. I started researching natural ways to get black hair, found LHC, tried Lush Caca Noir, started doing my own henndigo mixes, and eventually decided that I wanted henna red hair instead of black. I'll never go back to conventional dyes. Even my mom has stopped dying her graying hair because she's worried about allergic reactions. She lets me henna gloss it instead

    I used box dye once, and HATED it. The color was so flat and weird. Yup, it covered my couple of grays, but it was an obvious flat color. I've had it done in the salon maybe 2x in my life? and the last time I remember the burning sensation on my head, and thought, omgosh, THIS is not good. I then noticed a few more grays and freaked out, ran out and bought a box of dye - got home and really READ the ingredients, couldn't bring myself to put it on my head, called my hairdresser to whine about it, and she agreed henna would be a good route to explore - and I've never looked back, I only wish I had embraced henna earlier! my hair has never been so healthy (and pretty w/ the multidimensional tones henna creates)

    I'm not surprised, because computers operate by magic, and I can't figure out the tricks!

    How about a "cut and paste"?

    Maybe that'll work!

    Yes, that did it! Thanks so much.

    Oh boy, didn't realize it was "Abby" from NCIS. I knew she was a natural blonde and that she dyed it, but gosh, what is she going to do now?

    Yikes! Good thing she caught it in time and went to the hospital.

    I used to dye my hair on and off with conventional dyes, but none of it ever seemed to look right. I agree with longNred that box color, and salon color, can look one-dimensional. I think that's why many people will request the double-process procedure, where they'll have it dyed one color and then have highlights added. I finally stopped dying my hair because it grows quickly, I have blonde hair, and it made my scalp itch/tingle. It just wasn't worth it, to me.

    I hope she finds something that will work! I'm envious at how good the black looks on her. Dang!
