In brief: Head Lice

Will you be dying your hair yourself? I don't know what your state's cosmetology rules are regarding head lice.
Many Salons can't provide hair services to clients with head lice. If your scalp/ head is sensitive from either scratching or lice treatments- then you may wish to avoid dying hair until skin is less sensitive.

Actually dying your hair is one way to keep head lice away.
Lice will not affect dyed hair. Let your beautician know so they can take appropriate precaution. If it is at home, no issue.
