  • yes it is ok..there is not medical or scientific proof that it harms the baby. i did it too. just make sure you have a fan or a open window so you dont breath to much of that amonia in.

  • I've heard that it's fine, but I've made the personal decision to wait until after he's born. I just think of all the fumes I'd be sitting there breathing in for 2 or so hours, and just think that it wouldn't be a great idea. You're supposed to have a well-ventilated area, but if you're doing it at a Salon, I don't know how many have access to windows they can open, or a fan.

  • I dyed my hair in the 2nd trimester. There is Revlon 10 minute hair color that works great. Make sure to do it in a well venilated area, and it is fine.

  • I've colored my hair 2 different times during this pregnancy, no big deal. The only issues i have had was that the colors always took on a red tint which i was told had something to do with me being pregnant.

  • I never colored my hair while I was pregnant but my OB told me that after 14 weeks it was okay to go ahead and color if I wanted to.
