    It's fine, colouring your hair is fine too although some say to wait till after the first trimester. Highlites are usually in foil anyway so it shouldn't actually touch the scalp. I'm a hairdresser =)

    I had no idea it was a problem and had my hair done at 10 weeks. 15 weeks now and all ok. Maybe its just another thing to avoid in 1st tri????

    It's a really old myth they don't use the same chemicals anymore so it is fine to have dye direct onto your scalp although you are better off doing a skin test first as hormones can affect how you react :)
