'NCIS' Star Pauley Perrette Issues Warning About Hair Dye After Having Allergic Reaction
UPI ^ | July 23, 2014 | Evan Bleier

Posted on 07/23/2014 3:00:00 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Perrette's severe allergic reaction landed her in the hospital.

NCIS actress Pauley Perrette suffered a severe allergic reaction caused by her hair dye that landed her in the hospital.

The 45-year-old star, who plays forensic scientist Abby Sciuto on the hit show, warned her Twitter followers to be careful about hair dye allergies in order to avoid having their heads "swell up like a melon" or worse.

Perrette is a natural blonde but she has been dyeing her hair for the past 20 years.

"The other half of my face had become twice the size of my head," she told CBS Los Angeles.

She experienced warning signs six months ago when a rash developed on her scalp and neck, but ignored it. Perrette is considering natural hair dye or possibly wearing a wig.

You’re supposed to test it first on some part of the body to see if there’s a reaction.

45 years old. Natural blond.

Yet she still plays a 20 something year old emo character right out of the 90’s on NCIS.

Talk about stuck in a time warp.

Hey actors are people too.

Just weird, quirky, and eccentric who may also be human.

I do not understand why someone would want to change their hair color or get implants or piercings. The artificiality of people is annoying.

So would you consider this a case of proving her blondness?

Was the dye job supposed to be an IQ enhancement?

Will she apologize to brunettes for lowering the average...

Her character is a goth type - hence black hair required.

‘Abby’ is 45? Wow. She looks great for her age. Loved her in, ‘Galaxy Quest.’

I’m pretty sure she’ll survive this.

As biotechnology advances it will only get worse you know. The ability to “print” an entirely new body will cause all sorts of weird stuff to come down the pipe...

Don’t think she was in Galaxy Quest.

Or at least she’s not on any cast list I’ve found.

She should look at this as an opportunity. Get the NCIS scripwriters to come up with a plot in which she is attacked and ends up in the hospital. Use some CGI cosmetics to give her something like her usual look.

When Edward Woodward had a heart attack during mid-season production of popular show The Equalizer, they initially wrote him out of the script by writing that he had been kidnapped. When he was still mostly bedridden, they did a rescue scene in which he was carried around on a stretcher for a short distance, to conclude the two or three parter.

More to the point, when shooting the original Star Trek show, William Shatner was stung by a wasp on the eyelid, and they had to be very crafty, and use a ton of makeup, to hide it.

The hair color instructions tell you to always put some of the mixture on the inside of your elbow or some other “discreet” place and wait 24 hours. If no rash develops it’s supposed to safe to use.

I’ve colored my hair many, many times and, I admit, I never do the test. But I also had a terrible allergic reaction to eyebrow waxing last year (something I’d done many times as well, with no prior problems) so it can definitely happen “all of sudden”.

This kind of thing can be set off by an allergen overload at seasons of the year. Some people have scalp itching after eating strawberries, for instance, which are plentiful in the summer — add a big dish of them to an incipient dye allergy, and whoosh. Off she went. Shellfish are another trigger.

I should add that “beauty products” are notorious for changing their ingredients with no warning, so it’s really no surprise that allergic reactions happen even if someone has used a product multiple times in the past with no problem.

I thought Kirk was allergic to Tribble dander.

NCIS is the number one show on TV. It started in 2003. She does the hair dye for a character. How is not using hair dye growing up?

She co-starred in that movie with a former neighbour of mine. Enrico Colantoni played the leader of the alien delegation.

I don’t use hair dye but friends do - they’d put a bit on their wrist or arm to see if there’s a reaction. They always stick to a product they know and it’s only for the occasional hair lightening not a color change.

A woman who lives in my town is related to a very, very famous comedian. She was a stunningly beautiful blond with long hair. I saw her a month ago, and she’d stopped coloring her hair. She’s prematurely gray, like Emmy Lou. She’s more beautiful now then she was as a blond! And she really stands out from the crowd! Yowza!

I had a friend who had to go to the hospital from hair dye. And I think she was even using something natural because she knew was alergic to the chemical stuff.

I would ONLY have my hair dyed in a Salon, but my mom and a different friend used to do it themselves all the time.

It’s not a specific brand but the ingredients that causes the reaction. Check the label.

http://www.inquisitr.com/1368507/ncis-star-pauley-perrettes-gothic-hair-dye-landed-her-in-the-er/ “Para-Phenylenediamine (PPD) is what gives the dyes the ability to cover grey and causes the color to last. And it is banned in many countries of the European Union. It was “voted Allergen Of The Year in 2006 by the American Contact Dermatitis Society.””

“Natural” makes no difference, as allergic reactions are triggered by organic compounds (especially proteins).
