Question by  Darry (3853)

Can you color your hair after a lice treatment?

How long should you wait?


Answer by  redhead13 (24)

You can color your hair one day after applying a lice treatment. Coloring your hair will not affect the lice treatment nor will it kill or remove lice. You should color your hair after the treatment due to dyes being removed or "washed" out by shampooing your hair.

It is not recommended to color hair after a lice treatment. You can render the lice treatment useless or the lice treatment can alter the color you are seeking.

I think I would wait a few weeks. A lice treatment tends to dry out the hair and dry hair is much more prone to breaking. Remember that the lice treatment and the hair coloring are both chemicals and chemicals can't help but damage your hair if only just a little.

Yes, you want to wait at least one month, at least. Remember the scalp has just been through a really rough processing with the lice treatment and needs a little time to recoup. So give it at least a month, I would say more like two or three. The chemicals from the lice treatment then hair is too much.

You can definitely color your hair after having lice. Just make sure the lice are totally gone before you color.

Hair grows approximately half an inch per month; therefore, wait one month before colorinng. Then, apply only to the new growth. As an alternative hair dye will combat lice.
