  • I was told no by alot of people but I asked my doctor and he said it was perfectly fine as long as the fumes dont make you feel sick.

  • i did.
    I was about 25 weeks pregnant -
    did it in a well open and big room, with windows open -
    left it on for about 10 mins and my hair was dark as hell -
    i researched it && asked my doctor before i did it....
    careful with what color you choose though, hormones can change it...

  • I have heard that you should wait until you are through your first trimester. I am not sure how much truth there is behind that or what the reasoning is, but that is what I was told.

  • I do. And i'm nineteen weeks. My doctor said it was fine. She actually enjoyed the fact I darkened my hair and told me it's an easy way for pregnant ladies to give themselves a slight confidence boost! lol. I was told just not to do it often. They usually tell you to wait 6 to 8 weeks in between colorings so I just go by the rules now and try not to make drastic changes that could stick me with a freaky hair color for a while! :)
