  • yeah it's not on your skin long enough to do anything harmful.

  • I read that it was, you just need to wear a mask, and I think it also said that bleaching isn't ok. Don't bash me moms, I'm just going on what I read a few months back.

  • It's fine to dye your hair as far as the health of the baby is concerned - - be prepared for a possibly uneven dye-job though as your hair changes and might not "take" the color as well as it has int he past. Doesn't happen to everyone, but I know several mommies who were rather sad about that!

  • I color many preganant women. Bleach and color both are fine. So is perming. They don't make color and bleach like they used to. Several are fume free,chemical free and harmless. The only to check for is quick processing. Body temp is elevated in that area so you may process quicker,that's all.
