  • I colored my hair all the time throughout all of my pregnancies.. I personally think going to have highlights once should be fine. Make sure that it's done in a well ventilated area and you can always get one of those ear to ear masks that cover your mouth if you're concerned.

    You could always ask your Dr if you are really unsure about it.

  • Ask you doctor first before doing that just on the safe side

  • I was told it was okay after the first trimester and as long as you are in a well ventilated area and no bleaching. Highlights seem like no big deal, although because of all the pregnancy hormones sometimes colors don't exactly turn out like you think, so try in a small area first to make sure.
