Not sure where I should post this....

I have been using Nice 'n Easy by Clairol for years. I always do the test on the inside of my arm before colouring. This last weekend - I reacted to it. Not a major reaction, just extremely itchy and red. So, I called Clairol. The woman I spoke with said they do NOT use peanut or sesame oil, but they can't keep track of what their suppliers use, or what lines things run on.

I was already in a bad mood. A reaction, benedryl, and grey hair. Don't tell me you [b]can't[/b]. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/mad.gif[/img] I explained the difference between [i]can't[/i] and [i]can't be bothered[/i].

Then, I called L'Oreal. She was able to tell me on the phone that they have two brands of hair colour that are free of peanut, but had to check about the sesame seeds. Called me back within an hour, and told me they were both free of sesame oil as well. I've lost the paper I wrote it on though.

So, I guess I'm changing brands. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Did the haircolor contain PPD? It's possible you've become sensitized to it. It's a rather nasty chemical.

Yeah, hair coloring kits and Nair hair removal tell you to patch test every time because you can suddenly develop an allergy to it. Maybe try a different brand without the chemical the person above mentioned? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
