Is there an all natural perm?

I really want to get my hair re permed (I have NO body with out one) but I'm 24 weeks pregnant. I'm just not comfortable with the traditional perm. If not, I guess I will wait until March to have it done!

  • no...there's no reason you can't get a perm. there's some controversy/difference of opinion over haircoloring, but no other chemical processing to hair is unheard of during pregnancy.
    also, i may add..personally, i continued to color my hair (with my regular permanent/demi/glosses) during my entire pregnancy..and worked in the salon 10hrs/day (doing 90% clients color-only services) until my 38th week . no harm done.
    if the smell gets to you, and makes you nauseous, well..that's just something you won't know until you smell it. otherwise, get your perm!
