In brief: Contact allergy

It is possible that you are having a contact allergy reaction to the hair dye (mostly black dye).
You may need a stronger cortisone cream or spray than those available otc. See a doctor to get one. In the meanwhile, use to cortisone cream 4 x daily and try itchx anti-itch spray otc.
