  • I personally wouldn't put extra chemicals onto my body.

  • You can, but you need to do it in a very well ventilated place.
    Also, please remember that pregnancy can cause sudden allergies, so the box of hair dye you've used 100 times can very suddenly become a nightmare of an allergic reaction!!!

  • ^^ Yeah, listen to PartyGalAnne. Your skin is more sensitive when you're pregnant, so you're MUCH more likely to have a bad reaction.

  • I wouldn't. Not because of the fumes or chemicals, but because your hair can react strangely while pregnant. Even my hairdresser said he would never do a perm or color on a pregnant woman because it can come out so different from the way it usually does.
