I have been using Tresemme products for years now and for the past few weeks I have suddenly developed sores on my scalp and an itchy rash on the back of my neck. I was worried sick I had lice but my hair stylist says it is not lice and thinks I am allergic to my hair products. Is it possible to suddenly become allergic to your hair products after using them for years??

It is because of the chemicals that the manufacturers use. They can cause all kinds of problems. If you are open I can tell you more about this.

Could be they changed the formula enough so that you're having a reaction to one or more of the ingredients. I'd probably switch shampoos, just to see. You might want to look at your styling products, too.
