Are you sure it wasn't 8 weeks rather than 8 months? Shapiro Medical Group advised me not to dye it for 8 weeks after my op. in July 2013 (other surgeons seem to think a shorter period is fine, perhaps just a month or less). When I began to dye it, I used temporary dye (which has less harsh chemicals, e.g. ammonia and peroxide), which is kinder to the scalp. Now, at 6 months, I use permanent dye once again.

Seems odd. It may have been a typo. Double check and ask why 8 months is recommended when most of the top surgeons only recommend 4-8 weeks. Shapiro also recommended me to use Toppik rather than Dermatch to mask scalp show through, which is another issue you are likely to encounter at some stage.
