    Is there any hair dye that's safe to use in pregnancy? I don't mind if it's non permanant, I want to dye in black or dark brown x

    I dyed my hair at 12 weeks. I asked my doctor and midwife and consulted my pregnancy book, and they all said it was safe. The doctor and midwife said it was completely safe but if I felt more comfortable, I could wait until im was 12 weeks - which is what I did.

    Apparently the amount of chemicals that can get into your bloodstream fro hair dye is so small it won't harm the baby, and if you get highlights/lowlights, then there's even less "risk" as the dye doesn't touch the scalp at all.

    I get alot of greys, so i'll probably end up dying my hair twice again during my pregnancy - so three times in total, as opposed to once a month which is what I did before.

    Hope this helps x

    Heya, Its actually safe to dye your hair with permenant dye during pregnancy but you have to be carefull because your skin is more sensitive and the colour may come out different to what its supposed to! (The joys of pregnancy :haha:)

    But to be on the safe side you could use L'oreal creme casting gloss? Its semi permenant but I've used a few different shades of it before and I think its really good :) Also gentle on your hair and smells fruity instead of chemical-ish lol

    Or you could pop to the hairdressers and ask them what to do they'll probably recommend highlights or semi-perm colour so the choice is yours :)

    Hope this helps :) (I trained as a hairdresser and then worked in a salon so just going by experience) xx
