  • hey i am a hairdresser and there have been no studies that can link anything bad to haircolor. going darker is safest because the chemicals are the mildest. you can go lighter if you want and it will probably take just fine also, but chemicals used for lifting are the stronger ones. the only time there is usually a problem with the color taking is if you are on some kind of medication specifically antibiotics and some kinds of pain pills. i did my hair darker so i would have less maintenance and so i wouldnt feel like i was dying my hair all the time like i was before (just in case). i have never seen gwen stefani or any of those other celebs with roots while prego! i think pregnancy is hard enough without feeling like your hair looks bad right?

  • It's okay to do it, but there is a chance it won't take the same as it did before you became pregnant. your chemical makeup is a little different now that you're pregnant....same with perms.
