  • Hair dye is safe. The only "don'ts" are things that are dumb to do anyway. Get high, get drunk...those are DON'Ts. Free reign otherwise.

  • According to theBREASTFEEDING ANSWER BOOK, published by La Leche League International, no evidence exists that the nursing mother's use of hair-care products, such as hair dyes and permanents, has any effect on her breastfeeding baby. When a mother uses hair-care products, some of the chemicals will be absorbed through her skin. If her scalp is healthy and intact, less will be absorbed than if the skin on her scalp is scratched or abraded. ................... In other words, your fine!!!!.

  • As long as you aren't dying your hair as you are breastfeeding.. you're fine. The only reason people get worked up over dying your hair while pregnant is because of the fumes.

  • Yes you are perfectly safe to die yourhair while breastfeeding.. Even so while you are pregnant. Most hair salons now will us organic hair dyes, or a non paroxide based hair color..
