The only reason they suggest that you do not color your hair during treatment is because treatment causes ones hair to become more brittle and increase the chance of falling out. Though I have read many people still dyed it. Myself if it would make a difference in how you feel about yourself now then color it......... Best to you.

Hello, I understand the feeling, I could not wait to dye mine :)  I did wait a bit because I did not have much hair to dye

Can-do is right, depends on how you feel,

I was able to use ammonia free hair dye. Clairol/Natural Instincts is one brand you can get in almost all stores. Ask your doc!

Like Dee I couldn't stand it!

Good luck to you!!!!    Kitty
