  • While it is not proven to be unsafe, it also hasn't been proven to be safe. Best bet is to leave it alone, but if your really want to do something, highlights and foils are safer because they don't sit on your scalp (and absorb in). The other issue is that, with the change in our body chemistry, the color and dying process may not turn out as you wish. Make sure to cover you nose and mouth if you do dye, as the chemicals inhaled can be bad for baby. The air you breathe is the air baby breathes as well. ---edited to add: If you can afford it, it would be better to seek coloring from a professional instead of doing at home. Certified cosmetologists and colorists know how to adjust for pregnancy etc and their salons are usually more open and airy and have commercial grade vents for airflow so you are not breathing those chemicals in :o)
  • You can do with your hair whatever you like, but please dont DYE, you still have to bring in someone to this great world. Good Luck!
  • "Not much is known about the safety of hair dyes in pregnancy. It's likely that when you apply hair dye, a very small amount is absorbed into your body. But it isn't clear how much, if any, of these chemicals may reach the fetus. To minimize the amount of hair dye that may be absorbed through your skin, the Food and Drug Administration offers these recommendations: -Don't leave dye on your hair any longer than needed. -Rinse your scalp thoroughly with water after use of hair dye. -Wear gloves when applying hair dye.

  • You can and it likely won't have a lasting effect on the baby, unless you absorb too much chemical compound through the skin. what you should be asking is - is it ok to be pregnant when i'm dying my hair?
  • No, I don't think so. Better safe than sorry especially applies when you're pregnant, so in fact you should avoid using anything containing perfume (such as most deodorants and shampoos, but there is a few perfume free products out there) and other dangerous chemicals, such as hair dye
