i’m a hairstylist. i think as long as it’s in well ventilated area, it’s fine.

I am choosing not to just because I am VERY paranoid. My doctor said it was fine after the first trimester so I think it is probably ok but I’m just going to rock my natural brown instead of dying it darker.

I only highlight, but I continued that through my pregnancy.  I’m 26 weeks, and just got them redone on Monday.

I didnt use at all in first trimester but doc said okay in 2nd and on so long as i dont rub it into my scalp and i get the natural instincts that you only leave on for like 10 mins which helps.

My doctor said its fine to dye your hair and get your nails done. As long as the space is well ventilated it is fine. I have always just gotten highlights anyway.

Although I have read that during pregnancy your hair texture changes, so the dye might not catch or it might look different then before? I don’t know….

I would not do that.  Why risk it?  No matter what it is chemicals on your scalp.

I echo pretty much everyone else’s thoughts in this thread ; I waited until after the first trimester and went from dark red back to my natural(ish….) blonde so I wouldn’t have to colour again.

If you use henna you MUST use body art quality (BAQ) henna, which is only the plant and no metallics or other chemicals added.  There are online sites that sell BAQ henna that has been tested for lead, etc.  If  the box promises different shades of henna, it isn’t pure henna.  Henna color depends on your natural or current hair color that you lay henna over.

And you can dye over henna at a salon IF and only if it is BAQ (e.g. no metallics, etc.)

I did with DS and everything was fine and have once during this pregnancy. 

 

For those who aren’t dying your hair what else are you avoiding? Tanning, nail polish, hair spray??

Hair colour sticks to the dead cells, which is what your hair is. It does not soak into your scalp. Make sure you are in a well ventilated space so you aren’t breathing it in.

My sister is a stylist and we just had this conversation last weekend.
