A young man who sought to improve his look with some OTC hair dye did the exact opposite when it soon became apparent that he was allergic to the product.

In a series of a undated selfies, the poor kid proceeded to document his sudden Scanners-like head expansion while remaining in seemingly good spirits.

No word yet from the OP on his friend's little brother's condition, but a person claiming to be an acquaintance of the anaphylactic Dye Guy says he is "doing good now" and "the swelling is pretty much almost gone." He also noted that it "looked worse than it felt," but still "sucked."
