  • NOT cutting your hair will damage your hair. Well, not "damage it" but it will allow all the damaged hair to stay there sucking the life out of the rest of your hair. At least get a trim.

  • Did you just ask this the other day? Why would you not be able to cut your hair?

  • Bull puckie! that is an old indian wives tale. And basically they believe that if you get your hair cut while your preggers that your cutting off the life of the baby.

    Dying your hair is different. They say because of the hormone levels you never know what it's going to come out like so they don't recommend it.

  • oh my. Who fed you this line of garbage. That is like saying cutting your toenails while pregnant will make them fall out. Use common sense people

  • Didn't you post this yesterday?

    You misheard, cutting your hair does nothing bad! Using chemicals on it is another story...there's a lot of debate about whether or not that's ok. It's probably not good to do anyway, though, as your hair changes while you're pregnant and might not turn out the way you want it...or worse!
