Will dying my hair black damage it?

I have never chemically processed my naturally black hair (i.e. relaxed or colored), and I'm thinking about dying it jet black. Would this be as damaging as dying it any other color?

Hi Gracewilliamson, Yes, typically, dying your hair will damage it, making it more porous and dry. However, you can mend it with deep conditioners and treatments. If you're looking for a more gentle alternative to hair dye, you can try Henna treatments. I would research the effects and different colors you can achieve...not sure if you can get jet black. If you do decide to dye your hair there are plenty of ways to keep it healthy!
