What eventually happens to them when the hair starts to fall out and they realize they can't dye it anymore? Do their husbands/boyfriends find it weird? Especially if they initially became attracted to them, because of their pretty hair?

I know people who've been doing it for many years and haven't had their hair fall out, or had to stop.

You can do a lot with highlights which is not as damaging as processing the whole head. If you are careful about the touchups and don't bleach hair that's already been bleached, it doesn't cause breakage.

When I was platinum, I over-bleached a section of my hair. (Packed too much bleach/developer in an area.) My hair literally disintegrated and I had a chunk of hair missing. I had to wear my hair short, because it was so fried and used clip in hair extensions. After a year of this abuse, I went back to my natural color (after paying a professional because my hair refused to hold color.) We had to cut off my hair even more to remove the destroyed locks. It took a good six months before I started to grow in healthy hair again.

What makes you think the hair falls out just because you bleach it? That is not necessarily true.

Most women now have gone to highlights - which does not involve the entire head and is not necessary to do every month or even every two months depending on how many you have.

I've actually known this to happen ONCE. The lady in question not only bleached her hair every other month, but she kept her hair on the short side and insisted on getting perms almost as often. The last time she did it (and this was YEARS and YEARS ago) when they rinsed the perm solution out, the rollers literally broke off and fell into the sink, taking her hair with it.

Her hair stylist warned her this could happen, and had been warning her for a LONG time... and it did.

And knowing her husband, he laughed his *ss off and then gave her a big hug and told her it would be okay. I can assume that, because he was about the nicest man around. Luckily, she also had several wigs to wear, which she did and stopped all her nonsense. About six months later she had a nice head of gray hair she learned to style differently.

I know plenty of women who dye/bleach/highlight their hair and have done so for many years because, like me, they are middle aged. Don't know anyone whose hair has started falling out because of this.

And if your biggest question is concerning husbands/boyfriends getting weirded out by it because it was part of the initial attraction, I'm not sure whether that makes you, or these imagined men, more shallow.

I've known two married friends who have had cancer in the last few years. Both lost a bunch of hair due to chemo. Their husbands stayed with them. They survived. And their hair grew back.

If their boyfriend/friends love them, they will not leave they alone. They will not dislike a person just because of the appearance.

I have colored and permed (once-twice a year) my hair for years, and it is very healthy. As for what happens when you get old, everyone declines and loses what physical traits attracted their partner. I don't think a man would judge his wife for having thinning hair anymore than she will judge him for having b*lls that hang down to his knees. That's why God makes our eyesight get worse as we age.

You're absolutely right and your husband is a very lucky man to have a wife who recognizes this. It's called "wrinkle blindness" and its cause is intimacy.
