Olaplex 0 - allergic reaction?

So I’ve been using Olaplex no.3 for years without issue. When they came out with no.0 I was eager to try it.... unfortunately the results were awful. Immediately after putting in on my hair my scalp was burning and itching, but I unfortunately ignored it and let it sit for the recommended 10 min. When I looked in the mirror my face was broken out in a red, raised rash in each spot that the saturated hair had touched my face. It’s been almost two weeks since I used it and my scalp is still itchy and the skin on my forehead is super dry and feels really weird like almost scaly?? It’s extremely rough to the touch and looks leathery which is very out of the norm for my usual super soft skin. It’s (forehead skin) also still itchy! Has anyone else experienced this?! How do I get my skin back to normal - no amount of moisturizer seems to work :(((

Oh no, now I'm nervous because I just purchased this product. I read the reviews and everyone thought it was great. 

Re: Olaplex 0 - allergic reaction?

So. I thought it was me because I have a history of scalp sensitivity. Now I understand. I will stop using this product right away. Super dissatisfied. My hair did no look transformed as the promise either. My scalp is itchy and scaly. I have used it only ONCE. $200 in the trash.
