Surgery and Hair Coloring
Q: I've recently had surgery (3 weeks ago). I'm overdue to get my hair colored and highlighted, but I've heard that having anesthetic shortly before getting your hair colored can make the color turn out orange. Is there any truth to this?
There is more of a risk of reactions caused by any medication you are taking as a result of after-surgery care. I recommend that you speak to your stylist about your recent medical care and allow him or her to make whatever adjustments he or she feels are necessary to make sure your color process is successful.

Can anesthesia cause hair loss?
Is it safe to get a perm 1 or 2 months before an operation?
