Hair Dye?

Hair Dye?

Hi, I’ve been told over the years not to use hair dye that contains hydrogen peroxide but at my last visit to my Derm (who happens to specialize in oncology) he said I could go ahead and have it done with any hair dye. What’s the latest science? Thank you all.

Michael, I’ll bet you look great. The deposit color really does cover fairly well, but I’d like a less expensive option. This color costs more than permanent or semi permanent color. I’m up to 50% now, but I don’t like it on me. Other people look terrific. Isn’t that always the case?!

My wife is a hair dresser and dye will not stick to hair without color. It needs some hair color pigment to stick. For years I looked like a white and black leopard. Attracts a lot of attention trust me. Almost complete white hair now with exception of few dark patches.

I’m not either. Am I allowed to post the name here of what I’m using? It’s not quite the same since it’s deposit only, but better than nothing. I let my hair go for over a year to give myself a good chance of getting used to it, ugh. I’m about 35% grey.

I don't know, my vitiligo has seemed to get worse and worse as I color my hair more frequently and more frequently as I age. I will never know if there is a correlation but I also read the same thing. I'm just not ready to go all grey!
