To dye hair or not!

Hi everyone,
It’s just over two months since I finished my Chemo(still on Herceptin)and I was wondering if it would be ok to dye my hair with a semi-permanent dye.
Has anyone else done theirs?

Hi Alli,

I dyed my hair a couple of months after finishing chemo, I used a completely natural dye from Holland & Barratts called Naturtint (costs about £8.99), it is a vegetable dye and very effective - quite a few of the ladies on this site have used it. There is a temporary one called Loving Care that is also safe, but only lasts between 6 - 8 washes, I have also used it without any problems. I’m now using Superdrugs own semi-permanent and it’s really good and was only £2.99!!!

I am looking forward to using Naturtint…on my new short cropped hair once it actually grows in!


Hi Tracy,
Thanks.I’ve heard that the Naturetint doesn’t cover grey. Is that right?

Hi Alli,

My hair was growing back about 90% grey and the Naturtint covered it really well, it lasted for quite a while too. If you get a chance nip into H & B and have a read of one of the boxes just to make sure.

Let us know how you get on!

Have a good weekend,
