    If you have not had trouble with thinning hair or drying hair, go for it.  I was not so lucky and my would have been too thin or brittle to have do that. Good luck to you.

    I agree with  Bababoyd and if you don't have hair problems then do it.  I have thinning hair with Methotrexate and dare not risk chemicals to have my hair colored or tinted.!

    I have my hair dyed regularly and 2 colours at the same time so I understand your dilemma. Although I don't have an answer for you I still get it done but less regularly and not right to the roots. My hairdresser is also a friend of mine so I explained it... I think he was more terrified than me! I would say though if you are experiencing hair loss done put it under any more unnecessary pressure 😊 for the first 2 months of MTX Ai didn't get it dyed at all. Good luck
