Dear fw,

There are numerous hair colors that will not damage the hair -- in general, you will want to stay away from permanent hair dyes with ammonium or peroxide. The semi-permanent dyes will not give you as long lasting of a color, but they will be much less damaging!

Please do consult your medical doc or dermatologist though to make sure you are not anemic, or have thyroid, or myriad other medical issues that may cause hair loss though!

I hope that helps
