  • Yeah, wait as long as you can. also check out Aveda salons - their hair color is 99% natural.

  • I did, once or twice, my doc said it was fine, and searching online I found nothing to indicate it would have potential to be harmful.

  • my dr says its fine to dye your hair even in the first trimester there is no evidence that it hurts baby at all, I dyed mine my hair dresser wont bleach my hair but thats it.

  • I got my hair colored during my first trimester. My doctor and the hair salon lady said it was okay.
    Still I would ask my dr. to make sure.

  • Im a licensed cosmetologist, and IT DOES NOT HURT THE BABY AT ALL! no matter your tri mester, but if you are worried about the chemicals and stuff, im with the lady who said go with aveda, it is all natural. theyre products come from vegetables and plants... and just so you dont get nauteus from the fumes, try to color your hair in a really good ventilated area.. or just go get done at a salon.. :)

  • ha, I colored my hair about 2 days before I found out I was prego... but at that point I was less than a month into my pregnancy... sorry. They do say you should wait until after your first trimester though.
