Adding Hair Color And Chemo!

Adding Hair Color And Chemo!

Has anyone dyed there hair with a vegetable dye or henna dy and does it work? The doctor says my hair would start to fall out if I used a regular hair color on it and even though they say my chemo isn’t causing my hair loss I don’t want to make it worse because it’s right in the front. I have a gray stripe that really makes it worse so I was just wondering. Also I’m on Bosulif 400 mg.

I highlight every three months and I have no problems with hair falling out. My hair has thinned anyway during the last 10 years. The highlights give it body.
I take Sprycel 100 mgs.

I too have been coloring monthly and add highlights every other month. I take Sprycel 70 mg. So far no problems.

I have CML and have highlights every three months with no problems. My numbers remain low and I am no longer losing my hair. I did a bit in the first year on Sprycel but it did grow back.
