Hair dye, it’s long term use and potential adverse health affects, has received a lot of media coverage recently. Do you think that hair-dye should be avoided? Is there any such thing as a safe hair-dye?
Dyeing your hair is not as good as not-dyeing your hair. Many people point out that when they dye their hair they get more breakage. Anytime you apply chemicals to your hair you are changing what nature thinks is the best. Periodically, I hear of people who develop hair loss from dyeing their hair. I suspect that toxic chemicals or high doses of chemicals are being used that cause this hair loss. I am often surprised by the failure of such hair to return in the most extreme cases. There is no doubt in my mind that some people overdo their hair coloring, changing it frequently and in effect â€˜abusing’ their hair. Anything done in excess is not good. With regard to long term use, be responsive to what you see. Take a break from the dyeing periodically, going back to your normal hair color to see if it makes your hair better. At least, this way you will know how far from normal you have migrated to.
