Procter & Gamble

A civil lawsuit has been filed against Procter & Gamble alleging hair dye made people permanently lose all their hair. Plaintiff Mary Alice Mack applied a Clairol "Nice 'n Easy" natural black hair dye and was left with chemical burns to her scalp. Her hair fell out in large clumps and she has continued to lose hair for 10 months. Mack had preliminary discussions with Procter & Gamble who offered her an $8 refund and a wig. The lawsuit is seeking $12 million in compensatory damages and an unspecified amount in punitive damages and there is a potential for class action.

I just used clairol nice and easy ultra blond hair dye tonight and my whole scalp on top is full of chemical burns and they're bleeding and seeping too! I swear inbetter not lose my hair!!! I'm so mad right now! I decided to see if this has happened to others before to find it has and they can't even warn someone that burns are a possibility! I've never ever had a problem with hair dye until now and I'll never use clairol again!!! I took pictures and the pictures don't even show how bad the burns are!

My scalp is red, irritated and has been leaking a yellow - sticky liquid that is crusting on my hair. In addition to that I have a rash on my neck and ears and the scalp is burning.

I had Nice N Easy hair coloring applied to my hair by a cosmetologist and it left my neck with chemical burns...I have suffered since March of 2008 and would like to seek a class action lawsuit and individual lawsuit. It has caused my skin to become so red and inflammed on my neck that I've had to be on steroids. Now I've had blood tests and biopsies done but am awaiting the results.

I performed the neccessary test as requested for the product. I suffered burns to scalp and face and ears. My eyes swelled up and eventually closed completely. Swollen glands. Redness around my edges. Tightening of the scalp. Severe itching. Scabs on the scalp. I felt and looked like a circus act.
