  • I see no reason for someone to dye his/her hair,its quite unfortunately this part of the country we are copying what is not in our culture all in the name of civilization. Dying of hair creates negative thoughts about the person,the society sees the person as thug or a cultist. So personally i believe the disadvantages are numerous.

  • I personally am not against the idea of dyeing one's hair. But there is a level one should not exceed. Nigerians tend to overdo it all in the name of fashion. Not to even talk of the male youths. It just makes them ragged and unruly. The only way dyeing of hair can become harmful is by excessive use of it

  • Some people actually dye their hair cos white hairs are too much on their head even when they are not old but unfortunately a lot of youth and teenagers have abused this and are doing it the wrong way all in the name of fashion. It is not really a big deal to dye a hair but it shouldn't be too much or all the time

  • Another reason you shouldn't dye your is that, it may result to hair breakage. I could also say it consumes a lot of your time. It is more expensive than maintaining your natural hair. And also, some dyes, if not washed out thoroughly, could accumulate dirt on your scalp thereby causing dandruff. Which in turn is expensive to treat.
