Hair color

I'm wondering have any of you had any issues coloring your hair after surgical menopause? With all the hormones in flux I'm curious to know what the dye will do.

Re: Hair color

I don't have any issues dying it, but if my estrogen is low my scalp is much more sensitive to the chemicals.

Re: Hair color

I would wait awhile before doing so. After my tah/bso my hair would not hold a perm. It took a good six months of pampering my hair before it returned to normal. All is well now, but the effects of the hormones and anethesia did a number on my hair during the early months post op. Just my worth.

Re: Hair color

Ladies, this is so good to know thank you. I just had my haircut and my hairdresser decided to wait six more weeks before we decide to color it. So that will put me about 10 weeks out.

Re: Hair color

Hi Sisters, I am a hairstylist. Just wanted to give you a little bit of info. When you have anesthesia It will come out threw your hair. Any thing you take into your body will come out threw your hair (this is why they take hair samples for drug tests). After your surgery, before you have any "chemical service" at the salon you should have a Malibu treatment. This will take out any impurities or build up in your hair. Hope this helps

Re: Hair color

What is a Malibu treatment ? Is that like a deep conditioning ? It's to late for me as I am now 5 months post op and had my hair done twice since . I use goldwell shampoo and conditioner and deep condition once a week . My sister in law is a hair stylist .
So why does our hair fall out so bad after surgery ? I take the same hormones now that I took before surgery .
Thanks for the info ... I will pass it along
