Topic: RE: hair color?????
Hi! I am 7 months post op and a hair stylist. I have colored my hair throughout the whole process as my grey hairs make me chemically dependent (LOL)! I did lose hair. I know people who said they haven't lost any hair but the majority of the people I know have lost some. I don't believe I lost hair because I colored it and I will tell you why. Hair falls out from the root which is located under the scalp. When you color your hair, the color stops at the scalp and never goes to the root so to color the hair should be fine. Please note I said to color the hair. Bleaching the hair which is done when going very light or adding highlights would add extra stress to the hair shaft. Bleach breaks down the color molecules on the hair. Combining the bleach with the after effects of anesthesia, hormone changes, diet changes, vitamin changes and the challenge of staying hydrated would create, in my opinion, extra stress that could cause the hair to break. So, in my opinion, if you plan to stay at your natural color or darker, you should be fine.
Hope I helped.
