Is hair loss and hair coloring connected? The answer is no. However, if you have an underlying health issue or an imbalance, alopecia can play a part in hair loss when coloring your hair.
The products I use I study very carefully before using. I find look for the pH and even test for it to make sure the color system is not harmful to you or your hair. I also look for ingredients such as ammonia, PPD or resorcinol to insure the color is not carcinogenic. These ingredients could be a problem, especially the longer you color your hair.
When there’s a problem with the papilla… (the root of the follicle), it’s usually attributed to something going on physically inside of your body.
For my demi-permanent coloring clients, I use Redken Shades EQ in case they may be experiencing hair loss. No ammonia, no peroxide. This product is one of the safest on the market. It’s not meant to cover gray, but I’ve been using it to do so. I’ve had a tremendous amount of success coloring and covering grey hair without irritating the scalp.
If you’re experiencing hair loss and are afraid to color your hair, try a demipermanent color system that won’t leave a demarcation line when your roots grow out. My goto is Redken Shades EQ. Ask your hair stylist. Come in and ask me.
