There isn't any reason you can't dye your hair polly unless I guess you were having Radiotheraphy to your head, it's directed solely at the area it's treating, keeping things normal as possible is very important , I still slapped on my war paint and did my hair regardless, may have been falling apart on the inside but I wasn't about to let it show! All the best xx

Re: Radiotherapy and hair colour

Never seen anything to say you can't .I certainly carried on dying my hair. The only things that they advise on are using certain deodorants and shaving your armpits .

Radiotherapy and hair colour

I am due to start radiotherapy and in my bid to keep things as 'normal' as I can I was wondering is it OK to still get hair coloured at hairdresser. A trivial thing I know in the scheme of things but hanging onto our old self I feel is part of all this. Many thanks
