I have heard lemon juice also works on lighter hair (but again - something my 14 year old self and friends tried! lol!!)

How come your hair needs to be blonde or dark for dancing? Just asking out of curiousity - your dancing sounds fantastic, do you have loads of gorgeous dresses/outfits for dancing, too?

Well it could be red, but it's not quite as popular as dark or blonde. I look awful brown and I don't 'feel' like me when brunnette, so it's blonde.

Basically because dancing is all about the actual dancing and appearance, once you've put gallons of hair products on to the hair to keep it in place, you don't really want to discolour the hair. Hence the colours.

Lemon juice does work, but it takes a long time and I'm far too impatient to wait for that to work.

Hi All

I'm a newbie here and would please love to join your thread!

I'm 29 and my other half is 34. We are getting married in September and will hopefully start TTC as soon as we are married (as long as we aren't completely poor after the wedding!)!

I'm on Microgynon at the moment and don't plan on coming off until the time of the wedding. Part of me wants to come off now to let my body go back to normal but I also like having the control while on it!

I am completely broody and very excited that we will hopefully be TTCing in just a few months!

Hi Lou and welcome!! Congratulations on your wedding, hope all your planning is going well!!

Dragonhawk - I just checked NHS guidance and they say that there is no link between hair dye and and any negative outcomes in pregnancy, but probably best just to wait till after 12 weeks and stick to highlights, etc instead of all-over colour if possible (so less contact with scalp). It seems most stylists, etc feel it's perfectly safe, too. Phew! (I'm still hoping the grey hairs stay away, though - hahaha!!)

Cowtown Girl... I've read that too. But I figured that for 12 weeks, it wouldn't do me any harm. And by then the Sun In stuff should be having a better overall effect, so I won't care. Afterall, there is nothing more important that the safe knowledge that I'll have done everything I can to protect little Jellybean, if I am lucky enough to actually concieve.

Oh, and I'm happy now, I managed to get the CBFM on eBay for 41.

Haha, I started with the sun-in stuff when I was about 14 too!!! By the time I was 16 I'd started colouring it properly and I've been colouring ever since until maybe 9 months ago when I decided to go back to whatever my natural colour is... Reason 1 - because I'd heard hair dye wasn't safe when you're pregnant, and reason 2 - I thought I'd give myself a rest from dying it before I needed to start covering the grey!!!!

Hi Lou, Welcome to our OAP club!!!!
Congrats on the very exciting!!! I LOVED planning my wedding!!!!
I'm on microgynon too, and I also love the control that being on the pill gives me... I'm definately with you on staying on the pill until after the wedding - you dont want AF making an appearance on your wedding day or during your honeymoon!!!!
I am coming off the pill in the middle of July, so plan to start trying straight away, which realistically will be August... I know there's a risk that I won't get back to normal very quickly... but there's also a lot of research that suggests that fertility is high for a few months after coming off the pill - so I'm hoping that'll be the case with me!!!

Are there rules about hair colour? I had no idea.... what do the red heads do

Edit: I really should read all the posts before asking questions

Hi everyone

It took me ages to catch up i'm really pleased its still going strong.
I dye my hair also - i was blonde for years and now i'm dark and now its dark i can really see the greys coming through by my ears - I spoke to the doctor when i found out i was pg before and he said just avoid hair dye until after 12 weeks.
I was also on microgynon but i turned into a emotional wreck - if i was not crying i was screaming - my oh couldnt handle me anymore so now i'm on cerezette and although i'm still a little bit emotional i feel so much better.

Well i'm 31 on saturday and i'm determined to have a bubba before i turn 33 - oh really does not understand me saying that but i'm sure you girls do.

Hope everyone is well

xxx
