  • my doc said to use hair dye with no amonia and limit it to every 6 weeks-she wasnt too keen on getting my nails done though because of inhaling all the fumes

  • Dyeing your hair should wait until atleast the 2nd Tri. But nails isn't safe while pregnant or not. Its because of all the chemicals and depree in the air
