I didn’t do it in the first trimester but I got my roots done multiple times in the second and third tri and my son is perfect.

I’ve been using a box due to cover some obvious greys along my hairline since the second trimester. I color about once a month. I only use a tiny bit of dye, just enough to color some obvious spots.

I had my hair dyed all throughout my pregnancy, even in the first trimester. I had it done by a stylist and we used a brand of colour that was more gentle and mostly natural ingredients. LO turned out fine and is a healthy little boy now. You should be fine too. If you are worried call your OB and only have it done by a reputable stylist in the future.

The reason that they are cautious about the the use of hair dye, along with other things, during pregnancy, is because it is unethical to carry out scientific studies on pregnant women.

No one really knows what the chances of problems with the pregnancy might be, nor can we assume it is safe just because a stranger on the internet says they had no problems.
