  • I hairstylist told me that the chemicals they use now are not absorbed thru the scalp...I confirmed with my doc and they said to just limit it to no more than 1 time every 2 months to be on the safe side

  • My doctor told me not to because the chemicals still get absorbed.

  • My sister is a hair dresser and she said that you are ok to color your hair while pregnant. She worked and colored other people's hair while she was pregnant with my nephew.
