A 18-year-old female asked:

is it true a girl can't dye her hair or put henna on her hair when she's on her period?

Not true: Every girl needs to know that there is nothing she cannot do during her period. America is a free country. Being a girl should not have any limitations.
Dr. Keegan Duchicela
Family Medicine 14 years experience
No.: You should be able to dye your hair or use henna, even when on your period.
Dr. Joseph Eastern
Dermatology 44 years experience
No.: The list of myths associated with menstruation - particularly the list of things women are not supposed to do during it - is amazingly long. There is no logical reason to avoid dying your hair during your menstrual period.
