  • My midwife said as long as you can handle the smell then you should be fine once out of the first trimester. I never did it, but considered it. I did dye it while nursing though.

  • Back in my day it wasn't because the dyes all had a lot of amonia in them...these days they are some that don't have any so YES it should be safe but the person you should be asking is your doctor.

  • my doc said its really important to wait until the 2nd trimester because that is when all the major development takes place and while they don't have alot of evidence of it being totally safe or not, why take the chance? so she told me to wait till into the 4th month and use amonia free dyes not less than 6 months apart in a well-ventilated area. hope this helps

  • I did mine at 7 weeks preggo.. the stylist sad the fumes are NO where near as strong as they use to be, and if u do highlights they dont touch the scalp. so i went with it! loved it

  • Yes. A friend of mine was constantly coloring her hair while she was pregnant and her son was born perfectly healthy.
