Anesthesia does not have any known effect on the hair.

It is often said that anesthesia may cause hair loss, but this is based only on anecdotes and there is no scientific evidence for this. It may be true in the sense that any stress can lead to hair loss, with both the surgery itself and the anesthesia combining to cause this.

There would not be any significant presence of anesthesia in the hair, and it certainly would not affect any chemical services done to the hair.
