  • the ammonia in the dye is bad for you to breathe.

  • I googled, and from what I can find, it is probably OK. But "probably" would be enough for me not to. One of the articles said perhaps a semi-permanent dye. Ask your doctor. She'll have the latest findings on this.

  • Yes you can dye your hair. Now if you want to spend a little more money and time. Find a good organic/natural hair salon. Where i live there are tons of them that use hair dye that does not smell, isnt bad for the environment and for you to breathe in. But thats on you if u wanna do that. I would but i just dont have time since the salon is in seattle and im a hour away.

  • From what I know it is safe, you should put cotton in your ears, the danger of the dye is when it gets into your ears, so I have been told.

  • You can dye your hair whey you are pregnant. But you need to make sure you are in a well ventilate room. The ammonia in the dye is not good to breath in.
