How often can you dye your hair a different color?
If someone were to dye their hair once a month, would that damage their hair? Or even more often than that?
(aka Michael Clifford, if you look him up there will be at least 10 different hair colors)

> > > Hair dye chemicals linked to cancer
London, Feb 20, 2013 I've been saying that since 2009.
Hair dyes, which include home hair colouring kits and those used at pricey salons, are linked to deadly cancer-causing chemicals, warn scientists. In 2009 the Mail revealed that women who used hair dyes more than nine times a year had a 60% greater risk of contracting blood cancer.
A year later the European Commission banned 36 hair dyes which put long-term users at risk of bladder cancer. < < < <
Google: Teen 'feared she would die' after reaction to hair dye
The allergic reaction was caused by a well-known brand of semi-permanent hair dye Chloe used to turn her hair black for a Hallowe’en party. . . . . called for beauty bosses to ban hair dye chemical PPD (para-phenylenediamine) from the shelves. 11-04-11
The chemical is not new and is present in a number of brands of dark hair colours, acting to help adhere the dye to the hair so that it doesn't wash out. It’s made from coal tar and is used in both permanent and semi-permanent hair colours. It’s well-known to be a cause of serious allergic reactions -- including something called contact dermatitis which can lead to rashes, blisters, and open sores.
PPD is sometimes added to black henna tattoos and that using them is not safe. Allergic reactions usually begin within two to 10 days following application. One bad reaction can lead to sensitivities to other products such as hair dye, sunblock and some types of clothing dyes. Oftentimes, it's using the product a second or third time. Skin specialist Najjia Ashraf reveals that there are barely any dyes that don’t contain this toxin; even the ones who claim they don’t, are not being honest. “Big brands often escape the blame by suggesting they are ammonia-free. However, ammonia and PPD are two very different things and PPD is present in nearly every dye because it is what gives off the colour,” she explains.
Permanent black hair dye is linked to causing leukemia and lymphomas.

i am a hair color addict and a 5sos fan so i relate. i dye my hair once or twice a month. the colors aren't too hard on your hair if you use manic panic or ion (weakened down a bit of conditioner). however, bleaching it out will kill it. conditioner is my best friend. don't use drugstore colors like splat and those ones. they're about same price but worse on your hair. and the cancer thing, what doesn't 'lead to cancer'. practically breathing does to everyones opinion anymore. back to the subject his hair i feel is conditioned alot after the dye is rinsed out (no shampoo just conditioner.) and it'll make it softer and fluffier :DSource(s): dying hair for yearssss
