Hi all,
I am almost half a year post my chemo treatment for my Hodgkyns Lymphoma. My hair grew back but it is all dark grey with some white hairs ( I am 44 year old)I am planning to have a short haircut for my birthday in two weeks and would like to dye my hair or just use highlights using natural products. Any recommendations?
Thank you

ABA‍ I had my hair highlighted prior to chemo but haven't done anything since finishing chemo. I just googled it and it suggests waiting for at least 6 months after chemo before dying hair. Possibly you can look in the organic aisle of your grocery store. Have you thought of using those temporary hair dyes that last the weekend and then wash out? Plus there are shampoos that might add color to your hair also. Hopefully someone has had success and will be of help.

Hi ABA‍, I've had the same questions when my hair grew back, I've waited until i kinda had a pixie cut ( so waited like 5-6 months) for them to be that long and i used a dye without ammonia in it.. it less hard on the hair (scalp) and the nose.. and if you think of bleaching it make sure its not directly on scalp loll it burns like Hell (I've been there lol ). Keep us posted on how it went :)
