Can you claim for an allergic reaction to hair dye?

Dyed hair

There have been many stories of late from people who have suffered a skin reaction after applying a cream or hair dye.

Manufacturers have stressed that you should carry out a sample patch test on your skin to check for allergies or other problems. This is usually explained in the instructions of the manufacturer’s product.

Whether it is make-up, soap, shampoo, hair dye, elastic adhesive plaster, sun cream, lotion, tattoo ink or other; you should always do a sample test before applying for real.

It is not just allergic reactions that you should be worried about. People have reportedly suffered from second degree burns, blisters, red skin syndrome, septicaemia, cancer and more.

If you have used a product where the manufacturers have failed to warn you of such dangers, and/or not requested that you carry out a sample skin test; then you could be entitled to a product liability claim after suffering some form of skin injury or other.

For your own safety, you should always do a sample test, even if the substance is being applied by someone else. If your hairdresser or tattoo artist has not made you aware of the dangers or checked for your allergies before applying the hair or tattoo dye, then they could be liable for any injury you suffer.
