Beauty. We’re obsessed with it. And according to Tumblr, sometimes oppressed by it. We go through some extensive lengths to make sure we’re looking our best – and there are a whole slew of products on the market, especially for women, that address our never-ending quest to look fabulous.

But sometimes beauty products can have…undesirable effects.

Like swelling your head up to cartoon-alien proportions.

Redditor, the_chosen_ginger uploaded pictures of her friend who was just trying to dye her hair.

Day 1 – But then, she started feeling funny. And then this happened.

Her head grew to this size before she decided to visit the emergency room.

Day 2 – The toweling.

The towel, pointy ponytail somehow makes this infinitely more hilarious.

End of Day 2 – Uncontrollable pouting.

The worst part is that she’s trying to smile.

Day 3 – Giraffe Snuggie

I know they don’t have zippers but be nice, look how swollen her face is.

End of Day 3 – The slow crawl back to normalcy.

Hair dye is the worst.

Day 5 – Most of the swelling has gone away, but a vacuum cleaner lurks in the shadows.

Her allergic reaction was most likely caused by PPD, a chemical found in some hair-dyes. So next time you want to upgrade the shade on your dome, you may want to go with a PPD-free hair dye, just in case you have an allergic reaction to the stuff.
