  • lol I've never heard the red thing..but I refuse to color my hair while pregnant....I would feel terrible if the color didn't come out right (my sister colored her hair when she was pregnant and it turned green!!!! =S)

  • My dr gave me a sheet and it says after your 1st trimester your fine, but I still wont because of the harsh chemicals, and the smell would probably make me puke.

  • Well I did and I had a miscarrige. But Im sure it wasnt because of that. I colored my hair when i was pregnant with my son and hes perfectly fine. ROTTEN, but fine lol

  • I did.. I never asked my doctor I just did it... Thinking back now I probably should've waited... Avoiding as many chemicals and toxins as you possibly can is always a good Idea.
