Having been really fed up and feeling 'invisible' as a shielded person, I decided that I would have my hair dyed bright red when shielding finishes next week (in England)
I spoke to my local hairdresser and when I mentioned my hair is a bit thin and weak because of medications, she concluded that I would need a letter from my doctor before they would do any hair dye!
The thinking behind this was that if the medication is having an effect on my hair, then the dye (even if it is organic) may damage it further.
The way I'm feeling, I don't care if all my hair falls out! I just want to brighten things up a bit.
Anyone else had issues with hair dye? I'm on Methotrexate and Biologic Injection
