Could colouring your hair lead to hair loss?

For the last twenty or so years, we as a nation have become more focused on the way we look. From choosing the right outfit, the right accessories, the perfect makeup, skincare, hairstyle, etc. One common in home treatment many male and female people have used to improve their look is resulting in colouring your hair using hair dye treatments. Hair dyes are used mainly by people who are slightly older looking to banish the grey hair for a little later in life. One question does still remain, does colouring your hair lead to permanent hair loss?

Hair dying treatments can be purchased at local supermarkets or professionally applied to your hair via a salon specialing in these type of treatments. Hair sying became popular in the late ’90s and early ’00s giving people a way to change up their look. Hair dyes come in all colours, for all types of hair, for all lengths of hair, different reputable brands and so on. However this information may be, does use over the counter hair treatment cause temporary or in extreme case hair loss?

Hair dyes use chemical products contains both ammonia and hydrogen peroxide, which are very serious chemicals to by using on your skin or body. Before we look into the matter of hair loss these chemicals can cause burns if applied on broken or delicate skin, people with sensitive skin types and cause breathing difficulties. Based on these facts alone it cannot be unheard of that using hair dyes can damage or weaken hair follicles which over time can cause permanent hair loss. These chemicals do not stop the hair from growing but inhibit its ability to grow with strength making your hair easier to fall out gradually.

It is also recommended that even though hair treatments can be purchased over the counter at most pharmacies, you consult a hair stylist to complete the work on your behalf. By getting a professional to style your hair you can ensure the right products are used.

We would recommend that hair dyes are not used on s regular basis to prevent any permanent damage to your hair. If you find that your hair is thinning due to excessive use we would advise to stop using the treatments and discuss the next steps to improve your look. Whether it is to improve hair volume due to hair dye use, a complete transplant or discussions on how to improve your look we are always here to help.
