Cases of hair dye poisonings are emerging in India. We report a case of hair dye poisoning (super vasmol 33) which was successfully stabilized and treated. Compound responsible for hair dye toxicity is paraphenylenediamine (PPD) resorcinol, sodium ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid and propylene glycol which can result in multiorgan dysfunction. The patient had developed cervicofacial edema with severe airway compromise. Prompt recognition and effective management lead to complete recovery of the patient.
