Is Your Natural Hair Shedding Because You Color It?

Natural Hair, Shedding, and Color. Do They Have Anything In Common?

Shedding your hair because you color it? If you've noticed more shedding and breakage than usual after coloring your hair, you may be wondering if the two are related. While it's normal to shed some hair each day, sudden or excessive shedding can be a sign that something is wrong.

Here's what you need to know about hair shedding and hair color, and how to tell if your hair is healthy.

When you color your hair, the chemicals in the dye can cause your hair to become dry and brittle. This can lead to breakage, which can appear as excessive shedding.

If you're noticing more hair shedding than usual, or if your hair feels thinner or weaker than usual, it's important to see a doctor or dermatologist to rule out any underlying health conditions.

There are a few things you can do to prevent excessive hair shedding from hair color.

  • First, be sure to use a gentle, henna-based hair color.
  • Second, use a deep conditioner or hot oil treatment before and after coloring your hair to help keep it hydrated.
  • Finally, avoid using heat styling tools on your hair while it's colored, as this can further damage your strands.
  • In addition to hot oil treatments, hair serums can often help with the health of your scalp and hair. They've been known to help with nourishing your scalp and help to stimulate hair growth.

How To Tell If Shedding Is Due To Coloring Your Hair

First, check the roots of your colored hair. If they look dry or damaged, it's likely that the hair color is causing it. Second, take a close look at the ends of your hair. If they are split or frayed, this is another sign that the hair color is damaging your strands.

Can Essential Oils Help With Natural Hair Damaged By Coloring It?

There is no evidence that essential oils can help with hair shedding caused by hair color. However, some people find that using a few drops of lavender or rosemary oil in their shampoo can help to soothe the scalp and promote hair growth.
