  • I did throughout. Dr sid it was ok. They just say not to because the dye may not hold due to harmones. Same with a perm It will most likely fall out

  • you can. just be careful those hormones do crazy things with your hair so it may not come out the color that you wanted. same with perms sometimes they just wont take and for some they grab like never before! i had a perm and it took so fast she wasnt even done putting all the solution on and it never fell out i had to wait til my hair grew out.

  • I didn't do it with my first or second pregnancies, with my third I couldn't take it any more so I did dye my hair and instead of the normal color I get I got pink. I am not sure if it was hormons or just a bad batch that they got, it was not fun. I ended up having to use one of those shampoos that have dye in them.

    Good Luck!

  • It is safe. They say to wait till after your 1st trimester to let your body get use to the hormones. I waited till the 2nd trimester and there were no issues at all with the color or anything.
