小编摘要:很多女性都会染发,尽管她们知道染发前皮肤测试的重要性,但很多美发师并不会这么做。她们可能不清楚染发剂过敏可能带来的生命危险。

 导读:一位母亲在家使用了一款欧莱雅染发护理套装后突然摔倒并停止呼吸数分钟,昨晚她正处于昏迷状态,存活的几率只有百分之八。这是由于她对欧莱雅产品当中某种化学成分的强烈过敏产生的。现在距她出事已有三周,她只能靠人工呼吸机维持生命。医生警告说,即便她能生存下来,她的大脑也将永久受损,无法恢复了。虽然尚不确定她的昏迷与她所使用的染发产品有何明确关系,但这些产品和手套已拿去检测,欧莱雅公司也表示愿意提供相关信息,协助医生挽救这位母亲的生命。一种叫对本二胺的化学物质可能是过敏的罪魁祸首,这种物质几乎存在于所有染发产品中。



A mother who collapsed and stopped breathing minutes after applying a home hair dye kit was in a coma last night and has been given only an 8 per cent chance of survival.

Julie McCabe, 38, may have suffered a severe allergic reaction to a chemical in the L’Oreal Preference product.

She remained on a life support machine last night, three weeks after she used the dye, as her family continued a bedside vigil.

Doctors have warned her devastated husband Russell that even if she survives she will almost certainly be permanently brain-damaged.

No definitive link has yet been made with the L’Oreal product but doctors caring for Mrs McCabe, an estate agent, have asked for the kit and gloves she used so they can carry out tests.

L’Oreal has offered to assist the medical staff with any information that may help save Mrs McCabe’s life.

It is feared the chemical para-phenylenediamine (PPD) – present in 99 per cent of all hair dyes – may be linked to her condition.

Her family, who say she dyed her hair every six weeks and had never experienced any reaction previously, is now considering legal action.

They have contacted a solicitor representing others who have suffered reactions to PPD.

Mrs McCabe’s case comes less than a month after Tabatha McCourt, 17, collapsed and died following a violent fit that struck her 20 minutes after she coloured her hair.

An investigation is continuing to establish the exact cause of her death.

Last night, Mrs McCabe’s father spoke of the moment she collapsed after applying the product to re-dye her brunette hair at her home in Keighley, West Yorkshire, on October 30.

Keith Miller, 63, said she was rinsing the dye off after the recommended 20 minutes when she began struggling for breath.

'She told her husband, “I don’t feel well, I can’t breathe”,' he said.

'He rushed her to hospital and her heart stopped beating on the way. At A&E doctors cleared her airway and got her heart restarted but her brain was starved of oxygen for God knows how long.

'She’s now in a coma. The doctors have more or less said the condition she is in now is most likely how she will stay. They are not giving us much hope. It’s hard to take in.’

Mrs McCabe had used the L’Oreal product in the past, he added. He also believes she did a skin test before using the dye, in accordance with the manufacturer’s advice.

But he is convinced the chemical PPD has caused his daughter’s condition and is now calling for it to be banned from home hair dye kits.

He said: ‘I promise for the sake of my daughter and other women to get this chemical outlawed in Britain.

'I don’t want this happening to anybody else’s daughter or wife.’

Mrs McCabe’s mother Brenda Miller, 60, said: ‘PPD builds up in your system over time and this is what has caused a reaction in Julie.

'The doctors have shaved her head so no more PPD can get into her through her scalp.’

Mrs McCabe’s son, Luke, 20, and 15-year-old daughter Abigail, are both struggling to come to terms with what has happened.

'They’re sort of in a trance,’ added Mr Miller.

'Their mum is there one minute and the next she’s in hospital with pipes coming out of her nose.’

The family have since been in contact with a hair and scalp specialist who claims that an allergy to hair dye increases as a result of cumulative exposure to PPD.

A L’Oreal spokesman said: ‘L’Oreal was extremely concerned to hear about this serious situation.

'We do not know the details of the case so it would be inappropriate for us to comment further, however we will do everything we can to assist this lady’s family and medical team with information they might need to establish what happened.’
