    Default Hair Dye Damage

    I put a dark and Lovely hair dye in my hair about a week ago. I did not know hair dye would damage my hair and cause it to fall out. I have noticed when I wash my hair lots of hair comes out and when I condition and pick my hair it comes out in chunks. I don't know what I should do, should I try to save the hair by braiding whats left or should I just cut it off into a smaller twa or fade. I really wanted to grow my hair out but now I don't know if its possible. Any suggestions and has this happened to anyone else.

    chemicals are chemicals. A bad hair dye will cause you to damage & loose your hair just like a burnlaxer because it is a harsh chemical that alters your hair; in this situation, it's your hair color. Since your hair is already damaged, I think that you should just cut it off & to a protein treatment or something to make your hair stronger.

    the only thing that can cure chemical damage is another BC. just consider this another step along your road - now you know that permanent hair dye is probably not for you.

    i used to dye my hair a lot and never had any issues with breakage or dryness UNTIL i used dark and lovely. it made my hair dry and i had to spend all this extra time and product getting it back to somewhat healthy

    good luck.

    I would do a protein treatment and deep condition and see if that helps. If not you may have to BC or do a major cut. Dye on Relaxed hair and Dye on Natural hair can yield totally different results. Next time you definitely may want to do a test or have it professionally done. Good Luck with Salvaging your hair... don't panic ...just try to resolve.

    I will try a protein treatment and if it doesn't work I'll cut it. I did have this problem before when I use to perm my hair but not that I'm natural I never thought it would happen. Once I get my hair damage free, I will research natural dyes. No more dark and lovely.

    Next time, if you want color, try henna if you don't have a lot of gray....

    I cos-sign with Vapap6, I haven't tried Henna, but from what I've researched, it's a safe, moisturizing alternative to regular dye (this will give it a red tint). I heard indigo treatments are good alternatives as well (deeper blackish tint).

    This is the same thing that happened to me. I'd assumed that once I went natural, dye would not cause so much damage. But my hair started breaking and I ened up cutting it. It was my first year being natural, so I'm glad I learned early on...my hair just cannot take the harshnesses of most dyes. I use henna instead. You won't get any radical color change unless you have light colored hair.

    Dark and Lovely dye has never been my friend. It took some hair out when I was relaxed. Now, when I dye I use professional dye or go to the salon. Oh, rinsing like that's the last day you'll ever see water and conditioning for up to 2 weeks after always restore my hair from dryness.

    If your looking for a more natural dye I suggest doing a search of the site there are a few on here that you may be interested in. Dont let it get you down though, as stated in a previous thread it's just another experience along your journey. Good Luck.
