Color Zap Hair Dye Remover Irritated Skin?

Is Color Zap dangerous if I got some on my hands? I noticed a burning sensation, it got red and started to irritate my skin. I washed it off in hot water. I'm OK now, but I can still see what happened to my hands. They were red also. I did the whole thing wrong. My hair never got to look golden or anything like that because my hair is black. Am I OK? Does this mean cancer? How can I know for sure if I'm gonna be alright?

I am sorry your hands are bothering you. I am sure you will be fine. If the irritation doesn't go away I would just check it out with the doctor and you might get an prescription for the irritation on your skin.

L'Oreal has a customer service number you can call and ask them any questions you may have:


I hope you hand feels better. My skin is sensitive to many projects as well.

You have had an allergic reaction. You should always do a patch test. I would not use this product again if I were you.

You probably have sensitive skin. Try to keep it clean and use some aloe on it to keep it cool and hydrated.

It is always such a disappointment when a product doesn't work how you wanted and worse, it cause a reaction. These products can be quite caustic, especially for folks that have sensitive skin or skin that has been heavily weathered (like my hands are in the Pittsburgh winter). The hot water may have burned your hands on top of the reaction. I would avoid any products, wear gloves if you are doing dishes or any cleaning and generally resting your skin.


I would not worry about cancer. If you feel the site getting hot and red I would recommend talking to your doctor or health care provider. If you have that and a fever, I suggest going to an urgent care, as this may be a general infection, but this is rare, just be aware and SAFETY FIRST!!!

Sending up lots of prayers for healing!

PS, if you are unhappy with the results, I would call the company and tell them, kindly of course, and perhaps they will offer a refund. You may want to tell them about the reaction also. Just as an FYI.
