I've just started a course of roaccutane; i'm on 20mg per day at the moment. My side effects are pretty standard- just dry lips and the face is breaking out slightly more than usual but hey. 

I would like to dye my hair. I'm just wondering whether it is safe to do so because i'd actually be mortified if my hair falls out. I also want to get my ears pierced in the future but i don't know about how much my body can handle at this stage. 

If anyone has any info, i'd appreciate it. Cheers.

Check with your derm. You can get hair loss as a side effect so not worth the risk without checking. I have read you bleed more easily too so check out situation before pierce ears. It's only 6 month course so maybe wait til it's over to be safe.
