Woman Suffers Extreme Reaction From Hair Dye, Face Swells Like Emoji

A Texas woman had a horrific reaction to hair dye earlier this year, and was left with her face swelled up like a balloon to “emoji” like proportions, she says.

Shanika McNeil, 29, noticed the reaction shortly after coloring her hair back in January, the Houston native told Kennedy News and Media.

“I was laughing at myself because I did look extremely funny,” McNeil told Kennedy News of the cosmetic mishap.

Dyed Hair Sunday Prior With No Issues, But Woke Up Next Morning With Rash, Headache

She says she had dyed her hair herself the Sunday prior and “had no issues,” but the next morning she woke up with a headache and began to develop a rash.

“I dyed my hair myself on Sunday evening and it was fine, I had no issues,” the Houston native described. “Then in the morning I woke up and I had a headache — it lasted all day and then probably around 3 p.m. I noticed I had this line around my forehead and a rash.”

McNeil was then afflicted with even more symptoms, saying her “scalp started burning like it was on fire,” and that she “could tell my scalp was oozing.”

“My scalp started burning like it was on fire and then I used a napkin and could tell my scalp was oozing,” she described, adding that “as the hours went by I noticed my forehead was getting puffier.”

She reported the symptoms to a doctor, who informed her that she had an allergic reaction to PPD, an ingredient used in the hair dye, the outlet reports.

Doctor Says Reaction Was Caused By Sensitivity to PPD Chemical Used In Hair Dye

Symptoms of this allergic reaction can range from itching and swelling to anaphylactic shock, and even death, according to Healthline.

She was eventually prescribed antihistamines and steroid to help with the swelling, which successfully treated her pain.

While she thought she was finally in the clear, the symptoms once again reappeared after she got home from the doctor’s office.

“Every hour I looked at myself and my forehead was getting bigger and the swelling was worse,” McNeil recalled of her unfortunate case of “hyperinflation.” “It looked like I was an emoji, it was very weird. My whole family was panicking because I looked so strange. A lot of people said I looked like I was in a fight.”

She snapped some pictures of the reaction, showing her face as it took on the proportions for the apathy emoji.

Took Two Weeks, Two Rounds Of Antihistamines To Be Cured Of Allergic Reaction

At first, McNeil thought her cartoonish visage was funny, but quickly stopped laughing after “the pain kicked (back) in,” causing her eyes to be “completely swollen shut so (she) couldn’t see for a few days.”

It ultimately took two weeks and two rounds of antihistamines before the allergic reaction settled, the outlet reports.

As it turns out, the PPD she was allergic to is one of the main ingredients used to make hair dye.

She was forced to use “baby shampoo for weeks” after the ordeal to avoid triggering another allergic reaction, with the dye leaving her head with bald spots and eczema.

She added that her scalp is so sensitive now that it hurts to comb her hair. McNeil went on to say she hasn’t used hair dye since the incident, and does not intend to do so again.

“I haven’t dyed my hair since and I don’t have any intentions of doing it,” said McNeil.

Texas Woman Using Exposure From Experience To Warn Others About Prevalent Dye Sensitivity

She’s used the exposure from the experience to warn others about being aware to this kind of dye sensitivity, and has heard from countless more who have similarly suffered such reactions.

“A lot of people in the comments said the same thing happened to them — they’d been using a dye for years and then had a reaction,” she said. “I’ve told people to do a patch test every time they use it [dye] and if you are sensitive to it, look for a dye that doesn’t have PPD in it.”

A quick Twitter search for “hair dye reactions” shows the prevalence of such allergic reactions, with dozens of other woman pictured with swollen and disfigured countenances caused by PPD.

The exact brand that caused McNeil’s reaction was not immediately known.

A similar incident occurred to a woman in the UK after she was temporarily blinded and had her face triple in size from swelling after a bad reaction to hair dye containing PPD, according to the New York Post.

Oscar Mayer Introduces Hot Dog Popsicles

If you enjoy a hot dog, you can have it as a popsicle, thanks to Oscar Mayer, CNN reports.

The company announced it will introduce the “Cold Dog,” a frozen popsicle that tastes like its hot dog with “both refreshing and smokey, umami notes” and a mustard swirl.

The popsicle comes after lovers of the food brand asked for a poll, and followers of the Instagram account stated this was a “genius” idea.

After the overwhelming fan excitement for our beloved Cold Dog, it was a no-brainer to make this hot dog-inspired frozen pop a reality,” said Anne Field, an Oscar Mayer spokesperson, said in a press release.

The frozen weiner isn’t available nationwide just yet. Right now, you can find it in Long Beach, New York City, New Orleans, and Alpharetta, GA at Popbar locations for just $2.

Oscar Mayer is known for making shocking food items. A bologna face mask was also introduced by the company owned by Kraft earlier this year that sold out on Amazon.

Charlie Sheen Settles Lawsuit With Ex-Girlfriend Who Claims He Exposed Her To HIV & Agrees To Pay $120K

Charlie Sheen settled a 2017 lawsuit that accused the actor of exposing an ex-girlfriend to HIV. As a result, he has agreed to pay $120,000.

According to TMZ, the 56-year-old agreed to pay a woman listed as “Russian émigré” in court documents $120,000 over 12 months in $10,000 increments.

The woman states she met Sheen in September 2015 and had unprotected sex with him for the first time in October of that same year. Subsequently, the “Two and a Half Men” actor shared his HIV status after their first unprotected encounter.

When asked why he didn’t tell her about his status, Sheen responded that it was “none of her f***king business,” the court filing stated.

The unknown woman also claims that the father of five gave her “medication aimed to prevent her from contracting HIV,” Huffington Post reports.

The filing also states that Sheen told her that the antiviral drugs were unnecessary and “convenient rumors of the medical community.”

On His HIV Status

Sheen shared his HIV status in 2015 while Matt Lauer interviewed him on the “Today” show. Shortly after, his ex-fiancé Scottine Ross sued him for assault and battery, stating he failed to tell her about his HIV status.

Speaking with Piers Morgan in 2016, Sheen said he hadn’t told 25 of his sex partners of his status because it was used against him.

The only times I didn’t tell them was because the last 25 times they used it against me and used my medical condition for their own folly and financial gain,” Sheen told Morgan. “Here’s the great news. No one has been infected by me. No one.

Minnesota Timberwolves’ Taurean Prince Arrested On Fugitive Warrant For Drug & Gun Charges

Got ’em! Minnesota Timberwolves forward Tauren Prince was arrested in Miami this week for a fugitive warrant stemming from a traffic stop back in May.

According to authorities, Prince was stopped in Dallas due to an expired registration and police reportedly found two handguns, a THC vape pen and a container of marijuana inside the vehicle. Prince was charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon, possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance.

After nearly three months, police issued a warrant for the NBA star’s arrest after test results found that the vape pen contained 1/100th of an ounce of THC. Taurean Prince was taken into custody at Miami International Airport on Thursday night.

Prince’s attorney Kent Schaffer released a statement to PEOPLE saying:

Apparently in the last week and a half they issued a warrant for his arrest because they recovered 1/100th of an ounce of THC, which is probably the smallest amount you can have.”

The only reason we knew was because he was going out of the country for vacation. He was in the airport and his name came up showing that there was a warrant and they took him into custody.”

After Tauren’s arrest, Schaffer stated that the baller was the legal owner of the firearms found by authorities, and said the situation is “unnecessary and embarrassing,”

It should not have been handled in the manner that  it was, its totally unnecessary and embarrassing, but we predict that this case is going to be dismissed in due course.”
