  • i've heard 1st and 3rd trimesters are fine (For some reason)... in "what to expect while you're expecting" it says there is no medical evidence to say it's bad.. personally i think if you don't do it every week then you should be fine... avoid the fuems and drink lots of water.

  • no medical evidence has proven that it is harmful, but you should tell your hairdresser you are pregnant or if you do it yourself watch how strong the smell of the dye is, you may want to do it with open windows or even outside
