Probably not: Dear Juan94, I have good news! you are NOT going to die from this. Don't worry. You are probably having a reaction to the chemical. Even if ammonia free, dyes still have many other stuff. Try to clean the area with cold water. It it worsens, you might need to you some medication but since it is the face, we need to be careful. I hope this helps.
