Can you get your hair dyed while pregnant? What about your nails done?

  • i am a hairdresser and it is just up to your doctor...alot of times they dont feel it is safe for you to inhale the chemicals while pregnant but some doctors say its perfectly fine, i know lots of women that have done it and they and their babies were just fine. I personally didnt do it but just by choice. Just ask your dr.

  • Wear a mask, thats what I did, but my doctor told me it wasn't safe within the first few months of pregnancy. But after that it's fine wearing a mask.

  • I colored my hair my whole pregnancy -from 4 weeks to just before delivery. No problems for me or the baby. Discuss it with your doctor and decide what is right for you.

  • The biggest issue with hair dye is the hormones. A lot of time they can affect the way the dye takes. I had a good friend that would dye her hair every six weeks like clock work. Well, one time, she ended up with orange hair and her stylist told her to go take a pregnancy test. Sure enough, she was about 8 weeks pregnant.
