If you get hair dye in your eye, soak it for at least 10 minutes in a basin of warm water, and then flush it with clean water. If your eye is still irritated after that, call your doctor and make an appointment for an eye exam.
If you’ve been dyeing your hair for a while and have never had any problems, then this is probably just a fluke. However, if you’ve had this happen more than once or twice or if it’s happened to more than one person in your household, then it may be time to stop putting dye on the roots of your hair and go back to using temporary dyes that don’t go near your scalp.
Use caution when applying permanent color to the roots of gray or graying hair: The results can vary widely depending on many factors such as the quality of the product used and how long it has been since your last dye job.
