Your hair shouldn’t fall out from dyeing it a lot provided you do it the right way. But keep the following in mind:

  • If your hair is extremely damaged, the dye could contribute to hair loss. But it wouldn’t be the main cause.
  • If you have fine hair, it will be more prone to damage. It may be at risk of falling out because of the dye.
  • If you use permanent hair dye, you don’t need to fear that your hair will fall out. These dyes are quite harmless.
  • Super lighteners, on the other hand, require you to be careful as they are almost as aggressive as bleaches.
  • To prevent your hair from falling out due to the dye’s action, dye only your roots next time.

Can my hair fall out if I dye it too much? An expert answers your questions

Whether your hair will fall out due to the action of the dye  depends in part on the type of hair you have. 

For example, if you have fine hair it will be more exposed than if it’s thick.

Hair will rarely fall out from over-dyeing, only  if it’s already extremely damaged.  In that case, it may fall out from the chemicals.


But to tell you the truth, permanent dyes don’t have that much damaging power.

Instead,  super lighteners are the ones that require you to take the most care  of your hair, as they’re the only dyes that act almost like bleach.

So what if you have to dye your hair because of gray hair, or because of dark root growth of a different color? Only dye your roots.

This will avoid overexposing your hair to too many chemicals.


Will my hair fall out if I dye it 2 or more times in one day? What if I dye it 2 times in the same week?

Always remember this rule: dye on dye doesn’t lighten but it does darken.

So there aren’t really many reasons to dye your hair more than once in one day, because the only thing you’ll achieve is to darken your hair. And  just one dye application is enough. 


Anyway, if your intention is just that, to darken your hair, and if it’s in good condition,  your hair won’t fall out if you dye it twice in the same day. 


How much time should I allow between dyeing to prevent my hair from falling out?

Your hair won’t fall out if you dye your roots every week.

In fact, I know many women who rush to color their hair at the slightest appearance of gray hair or dark root growth.

You just have to be careful to  dye only the roots so as not to saturate your hair with ammonia  and dry it out too much.

  • Tip 1: If you’re dyeing your hair for the first time,  choose your color well to avoid regrets. 


  • Tip 2: If your hair color is dark and you want to lighten your hair, you can only do it with a super-lightening hair dye.

This  will only lighten your hair by one or two shades. 

In that case, you should be careful to  let your hair rest for at least a month  and nourish and prepare it for the next super-lightening dye.


  • Tip 3: If you dye your hair with a super-lightening dye, use it only on the new growth, up to  once a week. 


What are the safest hair dyes to use?

All dyes are safe,  you just need to know how to use them and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to the letter.

If you have to dye your dark roots with a super-lightener every week, you can also do this, but with the same precaution:  apply it only on the roots.
