My sore throat comes and goes but the headache has remained for 5 days now. It is in the front and around my temples. I've got green, brown, and red mucus, but, I did have chocolate chip cookies last night. I got my hair dyed red at a salon and she had to do the application process twice to get my hair the right shade of red. My head felt like it was on fire for about 15 minutes...just while she continued putting the second dye on. My headche and sore throat started during that time and has not let up since. Could the hair visit be related? Could it be the cause? My hair has been bleached, and dyed my whole life. I have never had this problem. Maybe I was just sick before I went to get my hair done but, I never get headches! I have taken Motrin and Tylenol 3 and still...the headache is here! I don't have medical insurance and was just needing to find out if anyone on here has a clue to what my problem could possibly be.

The headache could possibly be related to the hair dye...since she applied it twice...you were exposed to the fumes longer. when i get my hair colored, the smell bothers me and i sometimes get  a headache as well. try ibprofen is you havent already , sometimes alternating between tylenol and ibprofen every 4-6 hours helps. Not sure if the sore throat is related.
