  • Some doctors will say yes, some will say no. A friend of mine and I were pregnant at the same time. Her doctor said only during the second trimester, my doctor said not at all.

  • yup..in fact the docs typically agree with hi-lighting moreso because it dosn't actually touch they scalp as dyes do

  • In my last pregnancy, the doctor told me to wait until after the first trimester. This time, different doctor, told me I don't have to wait if I don't want to.

  • Dez is correct, it's actually safer to foil the hair because it doesn't actually touch the scalp, which is where the absorbstion would be if there were any at all. It's perfectly safe to color your hair. I can't vouch for box color but I do know the colors and products I use are safe and vegetable based. No fumes, and leave the hair in excellent condition. As hairdressers, I don't know one who ever waited to color, and our kids are all just fine. The only think I watch for is quicker processing time because of elevated body temp during pregnancy.
