I get the same reaction. And the last time I did color my hair, my doctor said the next time I do it could be tragic because everytime you do it the reaction will be worse. There are docotrs who will do allergy tests for this type of reaction and they will tell you what you can and cannot use. My appt is 8/28 and I CAN'T WAIT. I am taking an ecocolors pacth test to see if he can use it also. I would love to talk to someone who actuallu used ecocolors and see what the experience was.
