    I think you'll find people who've had this done - but I was pretty sure we were meant to avoid bleaching. I have dark hair though - so I probablly wasn't paying the best attention to this bit ;)

    I have been dying my hair blonde when my roots have been coming through right the way through my pregnancy and all is fine. I am not using bleach though as I thought you were meant to avoid this. I am just using the home kits and making sure the room is very very well ventilated.

    I am still having highlights done at the hairdressers & it is fine. I have foils so the bleach never touches the scalp anyway. The first time I had it done I was scared it was gonna go green! But it was fine ;-)

    Hi ladies, you are fine to colour your hair. Bleach is ok but contains more ammonia/peroxide so isn't AS safe as a normal say brown etc . If the colour touches your scalp then it does go into your scalp BUT the amount that then goes into your blood stream is so minimal anyway so i would still go for it :)

    Just be aware due to hormones & chemical changes in the body the colour may not turn out correctly :)

    Don't worry about it. I've done roots and highlights a few times since I got pg. My doctor said it was fine as long as I did not eat the dye! :)
