  • My dr said it was okay but i wait until after i have my baby now because when i was pregnant with my son i died my hair and it was nothing like the color on the box. I know they said not to do it in the first trimester but they said it was fine in the 2nd or 3rd. Good luck

  • Its safe as long as your in your second trimester.
    My cousin is a cosmetologist and said that your better off having it professionally done because the dyes they use normally don't have ammonia in them.

  • As long as you are past your first trimester its fine. But the color may not turn out right.

  • its perfectly safe. but be careful. your hormones are crazy so the color may look nothing like it should.

  • not really especially one you paid a dollar for. all store bought dyes are metallic in the base and can cause horrid resuts even in pregnancy free hair. go to a salon where they can use all natural plant based aka safe hair dyes or just wait til after the baby comes. you only have a few weeks to go. store bought dyes contain ammonia and other not safe elements and chemicals, would you ingest a glass of ammonia???no i bet you wouldn't if it can be absorbed in to your skin or scalp it can get in to your blood stream thus in to the baby too.
