  • Generally you're supposed to wait until your second or third trimester to color your hair. Some say it's okay any time during pregnancy, but I think it's safest to wait until your baby is done forming and everything. Some chemicals can harm it right now, but if you wait until you're about 14 weeks, you'll have a better chance of it not doing anything to the baby =]

  • It's perfectly fine! I had my hair highlighter(bleached) my entire pregnancy. The only thing to stay away from is perming; and that is only warned because your different hormones will not allow your hair to hold the curls! Go for it!!

  • it depends on your body type and your hormones. my first sone i dyed my hair my whole pregnancy and it turned out great . with this pregnancy i dyed my hair and it turned a funny shade of gray so make sure you test a little stripe before you jump into it.

  • My doctor doesn't want me to dye my hair at all during my pregnancy. However, my girlfriend dyed her hair throughout both of her pregnancies and her boys are just fine.
