  • Depends on who you ask.... I have known several women that dyed their hair during pregnancy and everything turned out ok, to include their babies.

  • I asked my doc when I was pregnant, and he said that as long as you are in a well ventilated room then its fine. Just dont do it in a closed bathroom.

  • My doctor said its fine so long as its well ventilated, but let me warn you, your hair takes differently to dye when you are pregnant. Everything is out of whack in your body, and the color you want may not be the color you get, even if you have had it done a million times before.

  • I skipped the first trimester, but did dye my hair after...I have to with all my gray...Dr. said it was fine, and the hair dresser made a good point, plenty of hair dressers have healthy babies and they work around it all the time....

  • I dyed my hair and my son came out with 3 eyes.....

    Just kidding! I did dye my hair, but only once. It's supposedly the fumes from the chemicals that are potentially dangerous. My doctor didn't even want me to pump my own gas because of the fumes.

  • it depends on wich kind you use. if you use one with amonya in it (how ever its spelled) then Dont... but if you use a kind with out then it wont have the fumes... thats ok to use.
