  • PS: I am a hairdresser.....
    ajguinne: The color issue you had was not from pregnancy, it was from someone not knowing what they were doing. Color accellerates quicker towards the scalp because of the fresh regrowth and the heat from your scalp. You are describing perfectly what happens when you apply any type of lightener, including colors, to the wrong part of the hair at the wrong time.

  • I hear henna is the only thing you should really color your hair with but ask your dr, pharmacist or call a hairdresser who specializes in color. I'd also check the box on what kind you use and get the manufacturer website see what the website says. I'd also google the question. There may be answers out there in cyberspace by experts who know

  • I was led to believe that it is safe to color your hair during pregnancy, it's just that your hormones may effect the coloring? I don't know how that makes sense....I haven't really dyed my hair since my first pregnancy because I just didn't want to mess with it. Iol, my hair looked so bad during my first pregnancy! It was blond at the roots and red habout halfway down!

  • Just color it.Using black hair color on blonde hair is the worst thing you could do to your hair but the damage is already done. Haircolor doesn't hurt you or baby, it just processes quicker due to elevated heat from hormones.
