    My 21 yr old daughter has beautiful bright red hair, naturally, not colored. It is fading near her scalp by her forehead. What in the world could cause this???? We are both very upset about this...we love the red hair!!!

    Did she change her diet lately, or started/stopped taking some vitamins or supplements? Was she very stressed just before it started fading? Was there some important or significant event in her life lately?
    Just to be on the safe side, maybe she should do a blood analysis to rule-out vitamin or iron deficiency...

    Sun? Some people's hair tends to fade very, very quick. New shampoo? Maybe it's too harsh? Stressful situations?
    Here is my ISO post. I'm looking for the Abital Flexi (XL), a small (12.5 cm) SenzaLimiti KPO, and a 3-prong CrockettMountainWoodworks acrylic fork

    My friend Chrisa has black hair (she is Greek) but her bangs area near her forehead is reddish brown. She says it's because it's where she swipes her make-up cleansing wipes. She's never bleached it or dyed it there. The rest of her hair is black.

    Crazy.

    Does she use any acne topical medications ? Something like benzoyl peroxide ? It will bleach hair around the hairline.
    This can occur naturally, I have a dark haired friend with a large patch of blond hair growing in on her left side. My husband's little nephew also has a patch of much lighter hair.

    Benzoyl peroxide face wash? Or even in a moisturizing product? That would bleach...

    My reddish blonde (with a touch of henna) hair is naturally blonde around the forehead area. It's also finer and curlier.

    I hope she figures it out!

    2nd that it might be the sun.
    Or has she tried any new shampoos or conditioners lately?
    Some can be harsh and fade color.

    I'm no medical expert but I would check the hair by her scalp all over her head, if that hair is bleaching aswell that means it's growing out faded, I would then go to a doctor and ask for blood tests or something.
    However, if it's only along her hairline bordering her face than I would feel pretty confident that it's being caused by her applying something topically that's bleaching it. If it is only on places where it would come in contact with a beauty product than the only thing left to do would be figure out the culprit.

    Well, I am no natural red head, but my Aunt is.... or was.
    She had very pretty red hair till she was in her twenties. It faded to a light brown color and she colors it blonde now.

    It could also be fading due to age. Both my grandmother and mother used to have red hair, but as they got older their hair started to fade from a vibrant coppery red (kind of like what you get if you add a little bit of hibiscus powder to a henna gloss) to a dull brown and finally to silver or white.) I am only 21 and I am noticing a little bit of fade to my red hair too, so I just did a Henna gloss (the mixture that I mentioned before) and it worked pretty well to give the colour back it's life.
