User Topic: Allergic to Hair Dye?

I dye my hair black. I've been doing this for awhile, though, I let to go for about a year, or a year and a half while I was growing it out. I've never had a reaction to the dye.

But, is it possible for someone else to have a reaction from my dye?

For a long time, H was complaining about being itchy. But, he is gone M-F, and he was only itchy at home, not at the hotels he stays at. We blamed the cat for awhile, but, we no longer have the cat. And, shortly after the cat moved to grandma's (about a yr ago) the itchiness stopped.

A month ago I dyed my hair again, and now he's complaining about being itchy. But, mostly only on his one shoulder. The shoulder I use as a pillow all night on the weekends when he's home.

I've never heard of anyone being allergic to someone else's hair dye...is this possible? It really seems my hair could be the problem...which would suck, because it will take awhile for this to grow out and I don't want him uncomfortable the whole time!

Hmm, I suppose it could be possible. Maybe spot test it on his arm the next time you do your hair.

Could also just be a cold weather/dry skin thing, or maybe even a heat rash from you sleeping there.

I had a severe allergic reaction to hair dye. Actually had to go to the hospital it was so bad and I had been dying my hair with the same product for years before I had a reaction at all so it definitely is possible. My older brother was very allergic to the detergent that his girlfriend washed her sheets with so maybe that is a possibility as well.

Could it be other hair products? Shampoo, conditioner, gel, hair spray? Lotion that you have on?

If you read the inserts that come with the dye, you'll see that you should test every time you use it because it's possible to develop an allergy even after long-term use of the same product.

If you've ruled out everything else (new detergent, softner, bath products) definitely try a patch test on him. You may need to switch brands.


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

My husband was allergic to one of the hair conditioners I used. Like you, we found out about it because he had a red rash on his "pillow" shoulder.

In the meantime, maybe have him take a Benadryl before coming home, and while he's home?

That's a good idea, thanks!

I don't dye my own hair, I always have gotten it done at a salon, while he's away, so, no spot testing.

Could also just be a cold weather/dry skin thing, or maybe even a heat rash from you sleeping there.

He's been working in NY for the last 2 years, their weather is a lot like ours. And, I've been sleeping in that spot for 4 yrs now, so, seems odd it happens, then doesn't, then does.

My older brother was very allergic to the detergent that his girlfriend washed her sheets with so maybe that is a possibility as well.

I wash his clothes in the same soap I wash the sheets in, so, I'm not thinking that is it. (though, he did try to insist for a long time it was, I tried several soaps, nothing changed.)

Shampoo, conditioner, gel, hair spray? Lotion that you have on?
Nope, we use the same shampoo, I don't use hair spray or gel, and i forget to use lotion 99.9% of the time.

I'll keep trying to think of things, but I'm seriously wondering if it is the hair dye. I'd rather give up dying my hair than my spot. My hair is short now...maybe I can keep it all tucked back in a wide headband this weekend and see if it is any better. Otherwise, it appears he is allergic to me, and if that is the case, he better buy stock in Benadryl.

Talk to your stylist, maybe a semi-permanent or brand change could help.
