  • My doctor said it was fine. I had my hair highlighted with my first and twice with my second.

  • I never dyed my hair while I was pregnant, I was told not to beacause of the chemicals in the dye. Even though my hair looked horrible the whole time I was pregnant!!

  • Its totally fine to do Hair coloring. It doesnt effect you or the baby at all! go to doctor Oz website and he talks all about it.
