there is natural hair dyes you could get at whole foods. those are alllll natural, you could use those if you are really worried! I know a lot of women that still color their hair when pregnant though.

The chemicals in the boxed dyes are less harsh than the ones they use at the salon, I think.  But you could go the natural route by getting dye from a healthfood store.  Or google it — I found this website by googling “all natural hair dye”: http://palettebynature.com/

I waited until after the first trimester and I colored my hair – just once when I couldn’t stand it any longer. 

I think the chemicals used are generally less harsh than they used to be, but I still wouldn’t color my hair with any regularity during pregnancy. If you do color, be sure to do so in a well ventilated area.

I agree with what these ladies said, except I just switched to semi permanent which doesn’t have any of the harmful chemicals in it that are even in question while pregnant and now I won’t even go back after pregnancy, I absolutely love it, I don’t know why I haven’t been using it this whole time!

My ob-gyn said that not enough of the chemical is absorbed through your skin to hurt the baby & just to be sure to do it in a well ventilated area to minimize breathing the chemicals in

otherwise all pregnant women would have to quit working in salons

i have heard though that pregnancy can warp how it turns out – the hormones can affect the colour, so even if you have used the same dye a million times before it mgiht turn out differently now

I’m a pregnant hair stylist. I have color on my hands on a daily basis. And I would recommend going to a salon over doing it at home.

I second what laaiinn said, you can color your hair during pregnancy the chemicals are not as harsh as they used to be.  You will be fine. I colored mine twice while pregnant.
