not to be rude but why would you think coloring your hair would be harmful after surgery? I know we lose hair but thats due to the anesthesia?  But coloring?  I did mine a week after surgery.  I would think one has nothing to do with the other?

Thats just what my Dr had said, not to put any kind of chemicals for 18 months post op? So thats why I was questioning it...

Oh that makes sense why you would ask however I did my hair shortly afterwards and no issue there.

I just dyed my hair last week at 7 weeks post-op. I was worried too at first because I thought "what if dyeing my hair would make it more fragile?" So far, so good. I mean I pretty much needed it lol and there wasn't much patience for me to wait any longer.
