I don’t think you will make yourself bald 🙂

 

I usually dye my hair about every 8 weeks or so, with a ‘girl in a box’ which is what I call the home dye kits.

Just be careful if your dye has a bleach component, which could be more damaging.

I think as long as you’re not putting shed loads of peroxide on it, you’ll be ok. What about a semi-permanent? (They seem to say that they do pretty much the same thing but with less chemicals?)

no, regular ammonia/peroxide dyes are not super damaging. if your hair is long, start at the roots first, and then comb it through the rest of your hair. that way, the dye is on the roots longer than the ends. the ends will only need a refresh, so the color doesn’t need to be on it as long.

if you keep your hair above the shoulders all the time, then it’s so short, I wouldn’t even worry about damage at all. 

it’s bleaching over and over that really destroys hair, and it kind of freaks me out how much it makes the scalp hurt.  my hair can withstand only 2 bleachings, any more and it will kind of melt.

I don’t think so.  I dye my hair (professionally) every 8 weeks, and I doubt 2 weeks would make that big of a difference.

I color my own hair every six weeks with permanent dye.  Whole head – I never do just the roots.

I’ve been doing it for over 20 years and have not gone bald yet.  

Now, the Sun-In I used in the 1980s – that’s a whole different story lol

I color my hair every 7-8 weeks – whole head.  I use Nice n Easy, so no bleach.  As long as I keep it trimmed and use lots of conditioner daily, my hair stays happy!

I do my own roots and highlights and it’s usually about once every 8 weeks.  You should be fine.

@Button:  That because SEMI doesnt go all the way to the cuticle of your hair. It will only last up to 4 weeks without fading, permenant will last up to 8.

The hairdresser are not ripping you off. Box dye has more chemicals in it then if you go to the salon. And i you cant always get the color you want just by looking at a box picture. But no you will not go bald, now if you are using lighter colors then your natural, and doing them to often, then yes your hair will start breaking and fall out.

I have a wicked “skunk line”, (I dye my head reddish brown and my hair on top is white) and I am not going to take the time to just do the line…. so the whole head gets dyed.

My sister once dyed her hair one time too many and ended up with chemical burns on her scalp… it was really flaky and gross.  Just a thought..

I’ve colored my hair for probably 20 years years now to cover grey which started in my early 30s. I have dark brown hair and get that zipper look after 2-3 weeks. I’ve been coloring my own hair  for cost reasons too, but recently found some nice color options at Sally’s Beauty which make my hair feel great. I have long, thick hair and generally need 2 boxes of color. Ask the people who work there and they can usually make good recommendations. The box stuff works well, too. I just used Fructisse Foam (then I use an ION keratin conditioner every time I wash to tame the frizz) and it all came out fine. No balding!

your won’t go bald, but it’s not exactly healthy for your hair either. do what janie-janie said.

apply the dye to your new growth only. for the last 5-10 minutes of processing, apply the remaining color to the rest of your hair and comb it thru. or you can do a shampoo cap, by mixing the remaining color with some shampoo, working it thru your hair and keep it on your hair for the remaining processing time.

You should be fine. Just make sure you don’t start coloring your hair anymore often and use a good conditioner for color-treated hair.
