  • stay in a well ventilated area. You can do it - Not bleach it- but if you are just buying a lighter hair color then it is ok

  • It has not been proven that bleaching, dyeing or anthing else cam hurt the baby! Just stay in a well vented area and you will be fine. I hope your hair turns out great.

  • if you have blonde hair, try lemon juice and sitting in the sun. Lemon juice is a natural lightener when you sit in the sun. There are other products out there that also do the same thing.
