  • Yes it's perfectly fine. Same with dullscissors, every pregnancy I colored everyones hair till the day I went into to labor. llol
    If it's fumes you are worried about, most salons use very natural color, with natural ingredients that are totally fume free. I notice it more in the cheap color you buy from sally beauty or a box.

    The only thing different I noticed, is pregnant women seem to process quicker due to elevated body temp.

  • Hi hairstylist here, and I colored my own hair, plus about 200 people while pregnant! That being said, you need to either go to a salon, or use an ammonia free haircolor, the drugstore dyes are much harsher than professional color brands!
