Highlights when pregnant


Hi,

Just wondered what people knew about dying your hair when pregnant? I only want highlights (foils) so the dye won't be on my scalp, but am not sure whether I should or not. My hairdresser says its a myth that you can't but my midwife said no one knows so recommended I don't. Any hairdressers out there?

I got mine done, full head colour & foils actually (not at the same time). Both previous pregnancies and this one too..

I dont use bleach, and make sure the hairdresser is aware of the pregnancy so no harsh chemicals are used.

Its your choice, many have done it before but if your not going to be happy, my advice is dont do it. There is no point getting it done if your going to stress for the remainder of your preganancy that you did something wrong.

I am having mine done on Saturday, from what I have read on the internet foils are fine, as you say the dye only goes on your hair shaft and not on your scalp so should be ok - I normally have bleach though so am wondering now if that wil be ok?

i had my hair highlighted a few weeks ago, just made sure i mentioned it to the hairdresser before she started and she said it was fine, i think with full head colour some people think the chemicals can get into your system some how, but i dont think they can. i think it is more to do with the fact that your hair can react differently to the chemicals when you are pregnatnt, i was fine though lol, and i felt great when i came out aswell x

i read in a pregnancy mag a couple of weeks back that its fine to dye hair when pregnant. apparently the hair dye companies use chemicals that are safe for pregnancy. if u dont wanna use harsh chemicals tho the shop lush do a henna hair dye thats totally natural. x

Most hair dressers will have natural dyes as well as synthetic ones. You could ask for them if you were worried. Ive been told its fine to dye your hair when pregnant anyway

btw my aunt was a hairdresser, this is what she told me.

My hairdresser friend (totally trust her as she has now done my hair for 13 years!) was up last night. I had mine coloured in first tri not realising about chemicals etc. getting into blood stream. My hairdresser said no, doesn't cause any harm. Mind you I still didn't get mine done but will next time I think. Just mention it to the hairdresser and take their advice.

Hello there. I was talking with my hairdresser about this a few weeks ago and she said in the shop they wont do a full head colour but they will do foils and this is fine.
