    Apparantly the saying if your pregnant you cannot dye your hair is a myth according to my nearest hairdressers :?

    Anyone know any better? Layla maybe? 8)

    I heard not to dye my hair when pregnant because of the fumes given off from the hair dye itself and sometimes on some women the dye doesnt work as it usually does...

    had stopped dying my hair before i got pregnant anyways so didnt have to come across the idea of doing it..

    Laylas reply (borrowed) from another site :-=



    [the only one they advise you not to have is bleach, but you can have it in foils.

    any other dye is ok, just be aware that it will take one shade darker coz of the preg hormones. ]



    I have the same reason for dying mine wobbles :oops:

    As far as ive read theres nothing proven to say dying hair is harmful during pregnancy. Its just personal preference really.
    You could always use the cap or have foils, they dont go right to the root of the hair.

    Sorry! only just seen this....dont come in to these forums

    yeah you can dye your hair, as above, it takes alot deeper when pregnant so it might come out a shade darker than expected. plus if you use bleach its best to use them in foils,

    I'm going to dye mine again this weekend, havn't done so since July and the roots are slightly showing. I asked my Dr. and they said as long as it isn't at the very end of your pregnency then it's ok, but that with some women durring the third trimester the chemicals don't take and it just dosn't turn out. Hopefully the dye will take to my hair

    i heared not to dye your hair as the the products in the dye are absorb into the blood stream but i dyed my hair when i was preg with second and had foils with my first so just read instructions and ask midwife or docs spunky xx

    So who actually went ahead with the hair color because Im GAGGIN to book an appointment. Ive gone 4 months without hair color and although im naturally blonde but have it highlighted a few shades lighter, these roots are really started to piss me off. They say to avoid bleach? OUCH, whats a bleach freak meant to do???
