Hair dye trails by a whisker

It's your call

May 29, 1991

People who do not dye their hair outnumber those who do, but not by much, according to a tally of those who responded to our telephone survey. Of 290 callers, 139 (48 percent) said they dye their hair.

But a slight majority, 55 percent, said they would consider dying their hair. Of 287 callers who answered the question, 159 said they would consider it.

Our questions were in response to a story in Tuesday's health section that cited evidence of hair dye producing adverse reactions in some people.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
