Many women have reported patches of hair being lost after repeated hair dyes. Still more report a dry and dehydrated scalp, as well as flaking after using hair dyes.
This is not surprising given the harsh chemicals and heavy rinsing sequences associated with the dyeing procedure. We’ve all heard that it’s not a good idea to shampoo every day because it strips the hair of essential oils, dries the scalp and causes product build up.
Well the same can be said of hair dyes. Hair dyes can increase hair loss by weakening the hair shaft through application of what is called ‘hydrogen peroxide’, which loosens the pores and shafts in the scalp to allow the dyestuffs to enter. This increase in porousness in the scalp causes protein loss and weakens the hair over time.
What should you do if you are noticing hair loss after using hair dyes? First things first, minimize dyeing, perming, straightening, and styling to traumatize the hair as little as possible. There is no better alternative to hair breakage and hair thinning than this. Second, build an effective daily regiment of natural hair care products to prevent further shedding and loss.
As an immediate secondary prevention method we recommend using groMD shampoo combined with groMD follicle activator spray.
How do our products reverse the damage caused by hair dyes and other harsh products?
GroMD shampoo and conditioner contains a complex blend of 15 key, active ingredients that with prolonged use can lead to your hair being visibly fuller, thicker, and longer. GroMD targets DHT, the main culprit to pattern baldness with a proprietary blend of DHT blockers. Ingredients also include caffeine; menthol, which vigorously stimulates dormant follicles; Argan Oil; Biotin; and Niacin.
On top of that, groMD’s follicle activator spray is a topical treatment that absorbs deep into the scalp, generating long-lasting results. A special blend of Vitamin A derivative helps clean out the follicles, which increases the absorption of Minoxidil (also known as Rogaine) for consumers already utilizing its perks. The Activator Spray comes in a no-mess spray bottle to stimulate the follicles directly at the source: your scalp.
