  • It's best not to, but the first trimester is when you really need to avoid it. Make sure you do it somewhere well ventilated. highlights are considered safest, because they aren't directly on your scalp. Might be a good option if you can afford it. I tried those natural dyes when I was pregnant (from Whole Foods), but they really didn't look good!

  • no you cannot dye your hair something in it is toxic to the baby if you breathe it in and being around it you cant help but breathe it in your not supposed to be around anything like that while pregnant hair dye, paint, strong cleaning supplies, etc.

  • my dr didn't have a problem with me dying my hair and the book that I got from my OBGYN clinic also said that there was no proof that is was in anyway harmful to the baby as long as you are in a very well ventilated area. So I dyed mine and DS is just fine. This is one those those touchy subjects that you have either heard terrible things about or you think its so silly to be so worried.

  • yes you can. i dyed mine a week before Thanksgiving (i was 16 weeks) and my kid had a super healthy ultrasound and is kicking up a storm as i type. when i dyed mine i made sure i had the bathroom fan on, the window open, and i put another fan in the window so that it blew fresh air in.

    i asked my OP about it before i did it and he said its just another one of those things you have to decide for yourself cause there's no proof for or against it. if dying your hair will make you a nervous wreck w/ worry for the rest of your pregnancy dont do it...otherwise go for it.

  • I wouldn't do it. Why put your baby in any harm just for your looks.

  • You can and at 20 weeks, it's considered "safe"...but, of course use an AMMONIA-FREE hair-dye!
