Can you have a hair coloured if you have discoid lupus?


If you have active discoid lesions on your scalp, or you are suffering from hair loss as a result of lupus, I would be cautious about using hair dyes. Chemicals in the dye can act as irritants, (although nothing has been proven to link them with lupus), further damaging your hair follicles. Your hairdresser may be able to advise on what product may be safe for you to use.
