Is Hair Color Safe For Alopecia Areata Sufferers? [SALON KOKOPELLI’S BEAUTY SECRET]

Dawn in Matawan had a question today about a cause very close to the staff at Salon Kokopelli: alopecia areata.

Alopecia areata is a condition that causes round patches of hair loss and can eventually lead to total hair loss.

Dawn is newly diagnosed with this condition and wants to know if it is still safe to color her hair.

Salon Kokopelli co-owner Mary Ball has been a hairstylist and salon owner for more than 20 years, and works closely with the National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF).

She says there are several options for alopecia areata sufferers from temporary keratin fiber treatments to permanent color options.

If you don’t have alopecia areata but you’re wondering how you can help, Salon Kokopelli offers free haircuts for people willing to donate 10 or more inches of hair, with the hair going to NAAF to make wigs. (It can be colored, just not bleached.)

Listen to Mary’s entire answer here (and find out how to get 20% off at Salon Kokopelli!):
