After being on Prednisone for just over a week I had my hair done. My stylist had been using that same brand on me (INEO) for quite some time. This was my first time having my hair colored while on the Prednisone though.
The next morning my head had swelled like a basketball. My forehead, the sides of my face and the back of my head were hard. Over the next week or so it seemed like fluid moved from those areas down my chest and abdomen until it eventually went away.
I have heard from one other person, a friend of my moms, who had the same issue.
I was wondering if others had this problem while on Prednisone and doing hair color. What has worked, what hasn't? Any idea what chemicals are causing this? I would like to find an alternative safer hair color but am not sure what to look for. I told my husband I'm ready to let it go a bohemian gray and wear a jaunty hat while it grows out but really am too young to be as gray as I am and would love to find an alternative.
