Thread: Witch Hazel question

    Default Witch Hazel question

    I was reading some discussion on using balms vs splash and there was a lot of talk about witch hazel being good for the complextion. Some guys said they splashed over their entire face rather than just the shaved area. They claimed it helped keep the forehead blemish free.

    Now my question is, will witch hazel bleach hair? If I'm splashing it on my forehead, it will be hard to not get some on my hair. I have very long hair, so I put a great deal of effort into keeping it healthy. I don't want to do anything that will damage it. Especially since the withc hazel would be hitting right on the roots at the hairline (the hardest area to keep long).

    Does anyone know?

    I use witch hazel daily all over my face and have never noticed a bleaching effect on my hair.

    I've used witch hazel for quite a while and I've never had any issues with bleaching at all.

    I wouldn't know. I don't have enough hair to worry about.

    I use it as an aftershave splash and I am sure some splashes on my sideburns.
    Definitely no bleaching here.

    You mean it was the witch hazel that turned my hair grey?

    I haven't noticed any turning grey but I have noticed it turning loose.


    EDIT: Actually it turned loose a LONG time ago. Witch Hazel is safe to use around your hair.
