|While coloring your hair is a common beauty treatment, the process
can leave your hair dry and brittle. Fortunately, dermatologists, who
are experts in the care of the skin, hair and nails, offer tips for
coloring and perming your hair while keeping it healthy.
“When dyeing your hair, consider choosing a dye that is darker rather than lighter than your natural color to minimize hair damage,” said board-certified dermatologist Paradi Mirmirani, MD, FAAD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the University of California, San Francisco. “If you choose to go lighter, select a dye within three shades of your natural color as lightening more than three shades requires higher volumes of peroxide, which is harmful to the hair.”
Dr. Mirmirani shares more tips for healthy hair when using hair treatments:
These tips are demonstrated in “Coloring and Perming Tips for Healthier-Looking Hair,” a video posted to the Academy website and the Academy’s YouTube channel. This video is part of the Dermatology A to Z: Video Series, which offers relatable videos that demonstrate tips people can use to properly care for their skin, hair and nails. A new video in the series posts to the Academy’s website and YouTube channel each month.
