Is hair loss and hair coloring connected? The answer is no. However, if you have any underlying health issues or an imbalance, it can play a part in inflammation of the hair follicle.
Hair loss and hair coloring is a topic that comes up quite a bit in the salon.
The products I use, I’ve studied very carefully before using. I know the pH of the color system. I also understand that the ammonia content, the PPD content and whether or not the product contains resorcinol. These ingredients could be a problem for you. 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 hair coloring, I use Redken Shades EQ for my clients who might be experiencing hair loss possibly for hair color. 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.
