Hi,
I have found for you a website where you will have a lot of information concerning the side effect that you may have while taking Xeloda and what precautions you should take.
Side effects can vary from one person to another, depending on how the body reacts to this drug.
If you experience hair loss,it's temporary, but you can always wear a wig if you wish.Many women do and find them very attractive.
Concerning the hair dye,you should ask your oncologist,because it could cause an allergic reaction.
