  • I am 8 months now and I dyed my hair when i was 7 months and I have had no problems or symptoms since doing it and all tests are normal. I wouldnt go crazy with it but like three times would not hurt i dont think but ask your dr just to be sure :-)

  • I'm actually coloring my hair tomorrow. (5 weeks pregnant) BUT, I'm using all natural henna with no chemicals. When I was pregnant with my first, I pretty much followed "the book."

  • It isn't that it is harmful to the baby - it is that you have hormones raging through your body and those hormones are extracted through your hair. It is why they recommend not doing anything like dying your hair or perming it. It may not turn out how you like it.

  • I got my hair done a few times during my pregnancies. Everything was fine, I talked to my doctor before hand and she said doing it at home or at a salon is totally fine just if you are doing it at home have a window open. Although I do that anyway because the smell is so strong!!! I like doing my hair later on especially because I felt fat and gross and wanted to look pretty again lol

  • I colored mine with my daughter and she is healthy and this time I colored it at 9 weeks and she weaved it so it didn't get to my scalp as much and I just got it colored again at 15 weeks!
