I've never done it before, but Im itching to do something new with my hair. Im just tired of it right now. Its medium/light brown, wavy, some inches below my shoulders, and its boring. I just want to try something else. I kind of like my husbands hair color, which is a brown/auburn. So I was thinking a dark brown/red. I have blue eyes and Im pretty pale right now.
any other suggestions for changing things up?
Could I whiten my teeth or something?
Heres a photo of my hair. I usually curl it with a curling iron. Its not this long right now.
What about crest whitestrips? Ive heard conflicting things on whether its okay while pregnant.
No, you shouldnt use them. Ive done research on this before and their website says they are to be avoided when pregnant. (Of course, they could just be covering themselves but as they havent been tried and tested I would avoid just incase)x
My midwife doesn't advise dying hair when pregnant. Those chemicals you put on your head will go into your blood stream and then into your baby. And I think there is not a huge amount of research into what effects it might have. I was also told its a definite no no in the first trimester.
My hair is looking awful at the moment, but I am just tying it back and trying to forget about it for now. I have dark dye growing out and have about 2inches of roots. I have put on a semi-permanent to cover it when I had a special occasion to go to, two weeks ago.
I think highlights tend to be okay, as the dye should not touch your skin, but you should still make sure its done in a well ventilated area.
Your hair is a lovely colour, why not keep it as it is for now and treat yourself to a new look after baby arrives?
ive dyed my hair loads of time when pregnant (over 3 pregnancies) and as long as you do it in a well ventalated room and your over the first tri then the actual hair dye cant do any damage to the baby its breathing in the fumes that does the damage so open the windows and get dying lol x
My midwife and two different doctors told me dying your hair is ABSOLUTELY FINE, aslong as you do a patch test and do it in a well ventilated room. The only warning I was given is that the smell could make me nauseaous.
