Customer Question

I think i had an reaction to hair dye because after 15 minutes of it being on my head I just couldn't breathe and was hot, shaking, dizzy and nearly being sick. But there was no rash or itching anywhere on my body, i managed to call an ambulance but they couldnt say what had happened. Was this a panic attack or an anaphalactic reaction because iv had no adverse reactions apart from feeling sick for about. Week afterwards.It was a blond dye I was using and I'm now scared to dye. My hair again in case it happens again. I need a TRUE test doing and was wondering how I go about getting this done.
