Thanks to Beyoncé, we know pretty hurts but we never knew how much! Poor Pauley Perrette of NCIS was rushed to the hospital after her latest trip to the salon. What had her seeking medical attention? Scissor malfunction? Hairspray in the eye? Rogue razor? Actually, none of the above. The actress had a nasty allergic reaction to the ink-black dye that’s made her famous.
As hard as it is to believe, the actress behind Abby Sciuto’s dark 'do is a natural blonde, which means plenty of upkeep to keep her signature look. In fact, Pauley tells CBS, she’s being dyeing her hair for two decades!
This time, though, something went wrong after the 45-year-old broke out in a rash and experienced severe swelling.
“The other half of my face had become twice the size of my head,” she tells CBS. Sound scary? Wait until you see the photo of Pauley in the video above!
She admits she experienced these kind of symptoms before, but never to this extent. Now that she knows how severe her allergy has become, Pauley says she’s looking into natural hair dye and wearing a wig. It’s probably for the best, girl. You know what they say about blondes.
