  • It's fine to dye your hair. It used to be recommended against years ago but the formulas have changed.

  • i believe you can dye your hair cuz you are early in your pregnancy, but i would do it with windows open, and in an open area so you arent breathing in that smell. But i would call and ask your doctor to make sure, just to be safe

  • yes you can dye your hair, also there are some brands that have special hair colors which are safe for pregnant women and they cover the gray hairs too, they have it written on the labels.

  • I think its fine 2 dye ur hair what i wouldn't recommend 4 u 2 to do it once you are close to your labor. Probably around 6 or 7 months you shouldn't dye your hair anymore and especially after giving birth.

  • Girl I colored my hair with both my kids the whole time. Drs have prroven that its fine to treat your hair while pregnant. I'd get something like Ganrner though. It smells better haha

  • Its fine. Just be sure to do a strand test because the color may react differently than it did before you were pregnant.
