yeah, i got a perm and i died my hair. I died my hair like a week before my son was born. You just have to make sure you do it in well ventilated area. Keep windows open and fans going.

 lol- no!!! My hairdresser wouldnt do it while I was pregnant or breastfeeding. Never really knew y though. Im not sure if its bad for the baby or your hair, I think I will google it and see why it is that u're not suppose to perm, highlight, or dye hair while preggers.

I dyed my hair several times while pregnant. I heard a lot of crap from people about it. But I did my research and it all checked out to me. They say that high levels of exposure can lead to birth defects....and we are talking HIGH exposure. I think you might be at risk if you dye your hair every day while you are pregnant...

My baby turned out just fine.

 I dyed my hair while pregnant. I was in a wedding and I needed it done bad. My doctor told me that it was ok, but since I was so far along he told me to do it at home. So, I got some boxed dye and I had my mom do it outside and I wore a mask so the fumes wouldn't be so harsh. So, I think it is ok for you to do it. As long as your doctor said it was ok then it is. I understand the worried boyfriend thing... my boyfriend was so nervous about everyting I did. I didn't lift a gallon of milk because he wouldn't let me!.. Good Luck!...

I have been dying my hair for ten years. I just used and amonia free dye when I was pregnant. Um herbal essence and garniea are the 2 best while pregnant in my oppion they always worked.

I dyed my hair while I was prego with my first baby I'm naturally brown haired buy I decided to dye it blonde.  It depends on the potency of the dye some dyes are alot more safe than others no and days then the ones I used back then.  I find a dye that was low amonia, if you can smell it and not get sick or gag then your ok.

I had dyed my hair at the begining, and permed my hair when I was 5 1/2 months pregnant, and got my nails done twice a month, and my feet done once a week. And my daughter was and is a perfect healthy girl. So I dont get why they say its all wrong for you,
