I don’t think anything bad about it, just keep yourself in a well ventilated area. I dyed my hair while BF-ing, but I used regular color from the supermarket and didn’t notice any ill effects.


ETA: I obviously kept baby away from the fumes, but I think that would be common sense. Since you use that kind of color, I think it would be fine.

My OB told me I could start dyeing my hair after the first trimester ended, as long as I was in a well-ventilated room. I imagine that dyeing it while breastfeeding is the same deal–well ventilated room, and away from baby.

I dyed my hair while I was pregnant (ammonia free, well ventilated) so I’m sure it’s okay while BFing (really it’s more of a concern about things you actually consume).

I get my hair colored & I breastfed my Dirty Delete. I just follow the same rules as I did during pregnancy (after the first trimester I went back to coloring) which are ammonia free & in a well ventilated room.
