  • I've never heard of that one. You can get your hair cut. It's just advised not to get your hair dyed during your first trimester. I got my hair dyed but didn't know I was pregnant yet...all of the color washed right out the first time I washed it. Something with your hormones, it can cause the dye to do funky things on your hair. And if you do decide to dye it after the 1st trimester, just make sure it doesn't touch your scalp...hair dyes have a lot of chemicals that you don't want absorbing into your skin while pregnant.

  • That's not true at all. :) It's certain dyes and chemicals you need to be concerned about, and most of those are ok, too. Your hair oftentimes changes when you're pregnant, so you're more likely to end up with color/curl problems due to the different nature of your hair.

  • you should get regular cuts to maintian the ends, even while pregnant... maybe even more so while pregnant since your hair grows faster because of the hormones.

  • I'm trying not to giggle, but there is NO reason you can't cut your hair while you're pregnant.
