  • you can try, but you will most likely no get the look you want. Crazy hormone levels that fluctuate form minute to minute during pregnancy make hair coloring very unpredictable. My hair dresser told me to not even bother with coloring etc until 8 weeks post baby

  • 2nd trimester is the best time to dye your hair. you can dye your hair as long as your dye is not on your scalp and you are in a well aired room or even outside. streaks are ok again as long as it does not sit on your scalp.

  • Of course! As long as it is "normal" hair products, it is perfectly fine. You don't want to scare your husband away with not taking care of yourself! LOL
