Did you dye your hair while pregnant?

I am just now into the 2nd trimester, so it's "technically" safe according to what I've read, but it still makes me nervous, so I probably won't.

  • yes, i did twice while pregnant with my third. i have lots of gray hair and have to dye it every 2-3 months =( anyway its okay as long as you're in a very well-ventilated area. if your bathroom has windows, open them up and turn on the vent fan if you have one. you can even have somebody do it for you outside.

  • No because I can not stand the smell and makes me sick to my tumy.

  • I did not cause my doctor told me not to so in my pictures of when I had my son I look even more like crap but I look back now and laugh.

  • I got highlights. They don't sit on your scalp the way dye does, so they're "safer." Make sure you're in a well-ventilated area, too.

  • I dyed my hair once, but I waited until my second trimester. I used a box dye from the store. And I made sure the room was well ventilated. I had really bad roots grown out from highlights and I wanted my hair to be one color. My three year old is perfectly fine. :)

  • i just dyed my hair recently (in my 3rd trimester) but we got the color from Sally's Beauty Supply and used foils. It's like you're highlighting, but you're just using the color for all-over.

  • i never did only because i felt i look like crap and so dying my hair wasnt going to do a thing for me haha. i would of though. the only thing that i remember that was said about that was that the dye can get into your blood stream or something and harm the baby but i dont know how much of it is true. that was only from a teacher in high school.

  • yeah my doctor told me that YEAH it soaks into your skin but the ammount that goes into your body is not enough to effect your baby or you. i dyed my hair during my second and third trimesters

  • I did starting in my 2nd trimester.

    Think of how many hair stylists have perfectly healthy kids!
