Hair Colour And Red Marks

2 posts in this topic


I really want to dye my hair jet black but I'm worried it will make my red marks and hyperpigmentation more noticeable because of my sallow skin - are there hair colours (or colors if you're american lol) that make acne and red marks less noticeable?

I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger.... Then it hit me.

I don't know the answer to that question, but the right colors can do amazing things for your skin. They say black is pretty harsh and emphasizes fine lines, wrinkles, dis colorations, makes you look paler, etc.

That's why I don't wear black in favor of colors that do good things for my skin tone. I used a reddish color on my hair. Once when I switched to a shade that was more red from what I had been using, I asked someone about my hair color because in sunlight it looked way redder than I'd intended. She responded entirely with comments about my skin. Which was stunning as I'd never in my life had a compliment on my skin. And people do bring it fairly frequently now. Of course, hair color isn't the only reason for my improved appearance. There's my diet and skin care., which Ievolved since I began coloring my hair.

I just switched to henna for the first time this month and like it.

Although red isn't right for every skin tone. Sallow means yellow, right? I'd search for hair color for sallow skin & look for a consensus. I bet its close to your natural hair color. Although It always amazed me that in every makeover show, they get a new hair color. Surely some people are born with the right color.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
