lately everytime i get my hair colored, my scalp will have a reaction and start to itch and pulsate, i know it may sound weird, but it happens everytime i get my hair colored. Anyone have this?

No -- I don't have that problem, although my stylist tells me that the color she usually easily wipes off the skin (around the edges of the scalp) had been difficult to get out since I've been on the lupus meds.

Our skin is a lot more tender than most people's. I stay away from chemical dyes, as I've heard of many people having similar issues.

Ask your stylist if something natural - like henna - is an option. It doesn't have the strength of chemical dyes, but it also doesn't have the ammonia, peroxide or other chemicals that could hurt your skin.

I've been using henna for years - never any skin reaction and it adds a bit of color and a lot of body and shine.
