PPD is commonly used in hair dye, but an allergic reaction can lead to serious complications such as rhabdomyolysis (muscle damage that can lead to kidney damage), kidney failure, rapid swelling (angioneurotic edema) and respiratory failure. PPD is also present in dark-colored makeup, lipstick, henna tattoos and a number of other products.
Estelle tells the press briefing that she noticed an irritation almost immediately on her scalp, and then swelling started. She took antihistamines, but the next morning her head was 24.8 inches, while her average height was 22 inches.
Below, a video of his terrifying reaction.
Estelle told the French point of sale: "I could not breathe. I had a light bulb head. "
The woman was taken to the emergency room while her tongue continued to swell. There, she received an adrenaline injection and spent the night. Since then she has fully recovered, but she wants to warn others of the dangers of dyeing hair at home.
PPD is an ingredient in a number of hair dyes, but is particularly common in darker shades.
