    ive had it done at the hair dressers as they said it was ok too, but do u reckon i'd be ok just doing it myself as i dont really want to splash out on having it done again. My hair is growing so fast im going to need it done every month at this rate!! i was just going to buy a box and do it tomorrow, im blonde but wont use proxide i'll just get a blonde one???:shrug:

    as long as it's hair colour and not bleach, you'll be fine - make sure to do a test on a bit of hair to make sure the colour is what you want (it can come out differently when you're pregnant and you don't want to end up with a colour you aren't happy with)

    and just make sure you're in a well ventilated area - I found that my sense of smell has been heightened while pregnant so the smell can become offensive pretty quick lol

    I'm getting my SIL to do mine next weekend because grey hairs are starting to pop through and a good colour always makes me feel better!

    Can always try it, shouldn't be a problem if you just get a normal blonde one :) I'm having the same problem, i had mine done a couple of weeks ago at the hairdressers and the colour is starting to fade already so i'm tempted to go and buy the dye and do it myself! God only knows what i'll end up looking like :rofl:

    I heard that most home dyes are safe to use as long as they don't have ammonia in. I was surprised to see that Nice'n'Easy has ammonia in though, so might be worth just checking the ingredients of the one you buy xx

    ETA: NHS info on it https://www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/949.aspx?CategoryID=54&SubCategoryID=131 Doesn't mention anything about the ammonia though so perhaps what I heard is a myth xx

    it is safe to do at home as long as you stay in a well ventilated area! Make sure you arent doing it to often. Every 4 weeks can be very damaging to your hair. Try for every 5-6 weeks! And avoid Bleach!!! My hairdresser just came back from maternity leave in time to cut my hair for me so I can go on maternity leave :) I have been doing my own color at home now most of this pregnancy!
