A WOMAN has revealed that she thought it would be a good idea to dye her hair herself, but unfortunately, things didn’t go to plan.
The beauty fan explained that she did a patch test prior to dying her hair, and it was ‘completely fine’.
However, two days after colouring her locks, Laura’s face began to swell.
Before long, Laura could barely see or breathe, and was rushed to hospital, where she then spent 10 days on steroids to control the reaction.

At the start of the clip, Laura shared a picture of her, with freshly dyed, black hair.
However, while Laura thought her hair looked great, she wasn’t prepared for what would happen.
Shortly after, Laura shared a picture of her face, with her forehead incredibly swollen, as she added: “After 48 hours, I was completely swollen.”
Laura explained that once she noticed the swelling, she “went to the walk in centre and got sent home.”

She then posted another image of her, two days after, as the swelling continued to get worse, as she claimed: “After four days I couldn’t open my eyes anymore.”
Laura then posted a picture of her arm, whilst lying down in a hospital bed.
She confirmed: “Then I couldn’t breathe and got rushed to the hospital.”
Reflecting on the hair nightmare, the beauty fan explained: “Never dying my hair again in my life.”
Laura later confirmed: “I did a patch test and was completely fine.
“Unfortunately my allergies flared up a few days after.
“I couldn’t breathe. Was in hospital for 10 days with steroids.
“The swelling came down eventually but still had lots of spots filled with pus on my scalp for at least four weeks.”
But it turns out that this wasn’t the first time Laura had dyed her hair, as she added: “I dyed my hair three times and each time the reaction was slightly worse but the last time I did it was my lesson learnt.”
Social media users were left open-mouthed at Laura’s hair horror, and many thought her swollen face made her look like an alien.
One person said: “It’s giving Megamind.”
Another added: “Space raider.”
