  • As long as your not drinking the dye solution, I think you'll be alright!

  • My doc said it was fine to get my hair done so long as it was well ventilated and the smell didn't make me sick. You'll be fine :)

  • They haven't been able to prove for sure whether it's safe or not. I avoided it until my third trimester, because most dangerous chemicals are only dangerous in the first trimester, and I figured it was better to do it in the third trimester than when he was out and actually breathing it. Lots of people dye their hair and their babies are fine, so just use your own judgement.
