Coloring the Hair and Using Minoxidil, Can It Be Done Safely?

I am a female. My dermatologist recently told me that any kind of hair color should not be used when experiencing hair loss/thinning hair. I’m dealing with thinning hair on my crown and right side of my scalp. I’ve recently started using Rogaine and my derm advised I could use whatever shampoo I wanted, ( I was very surprised at this). I’ve been using semi-perm color on my hair for years and on occasion using perm color. All in the salon ?

Yes, hair coloring impacts the hair on top of your head. Genetic hair loss is below the scalp level so the two are unrelated. Don’t damage your hair with dyes, which can happen below the skin when it is used wrong.

Get a virtual consultation with Dr. William Rassman and Dr. Jae Pak for hair loss options. You can learn more by scheduling an appointment.
