Is hair loss and hair coloring connected? The answer is no. However, if you have any underlying health issue or ailment, it can play a part.
As a hair colorist and stylist, I take my job very seriously when it comes to the products I use on your hair. Let’s face it, if it’s going on your hair, it’s going on your skin.
Hair loss and hair coloring is one of those topics that comes up quite a bit in the salon.
The products I use, I’ve studied very carefully before using. I know the pH, I know the ammonia, resorcinol, the PPD and formaldehyde contents. These ingredients can add to the inflammation. Inflammation is a major cause of hair loss.
When there’s a problem with the papilla… (the root of the follicle), it’s usually attributed to what’s going on inside. But, your insides will also sometimes send out these free radicals on to your scalp and into your papilla. DHT is thought to cause hair follicles to miniaturize, and this contributes to hair loss as well.
I use Redken Shades EQ for my clients that are experiencing hair loss. No ammonia, no peroxide. This product is one of the safest on the skin. 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 gray hair on my clients with hair loss and without the irritation on 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 go to is Redken Shades EQ. Ask your hair stylist. Come in and ask me.
