Fact or Fiction?

Although color-treating hair is rarely linked to hair fall from the scalp, the process does indeed damage hair. The chemicals in hair color can strip the cuticle of the F-layer (hair’s naturally-protective lipid layer that gives hair its natural sheen and damage protection), so color-treated hair can be more prone to hair breakage. Using hair products, which are formulated for color-treated hair, will help a great deal in restoring hair’s strength against damage as well as its luminosity and manageability. Furthermore, recent advances in hair color technology are bringing less damaging at-home hair color options to the market, so there is little reason to worry about hair fall caused by breakage.
