  • I was very tempted when i was pregnant too but I opted not too. In the books it all says not to just to be on the safe side. If anything, ive seen pregnant people get highlights in a very very well ventilated area, because with highlights the dye doesn't touch the scalp.. other than that I would just wait! Better to be safe than sorry!

  • I colored my hair throughout my pregnancy and my baby is just fine. My OB at the time was also pregnant and she is the one who said it was okay. She told me she colored her hair also. Just to be on the safe side - check with your doctor, but it should be okay.

  • You can get lead poisoning I was told by someone...not sure how true that is. I dyed my hair with my DD but this time I opted for Henna hair dye. It's natural and smells nice :)

  • I am a hair dresser and I have talked tp plenty of doctors about it. When doing it make sure you are in a very well ventalated area.
