    I think its ok as long as kept to a minimum and the room is well ventilated. Foil i heard r better as they don't touch the scalp

    My FS (who is also an ob) said best not to in 1st trimester, but is probably fine after that.

    My doc said it's fine but wanted me to wait til after 1st trimester which I was fine with. 17 weeks I had foils done that didn't touch my scalp and it was in a well ventilated salon I was at the front of the place and they used a no ammonia kind of stuff

    I also waited til second trimester. Doctor couldn't definitely say for sure if it's bad or not. I had ammonia free type ones and sat in well
    Ventilated area like the other ladies mentioned.

    There is no evidence to say dying your hair is dangerous in pregnancy. Some people recommend waiting until you've passed the 12 week mark. At the end of the day it's your choice. I forgot I was even pregnant and did my regrowth in the first trimester, but certainly didn't stress myself out about it!

    I've had mine one several times since finding out I was pregnant. some people say the fumes are toxic, but I figure that pregnant women work in salons everyday and they're fine!

    My issue is more with it going into my scalp, not being in the salon.

    I have my embryo transfer tomorrow, so I got my hair done yesterday. if I'm lucky & this works & sticks, I'll wait until after 1st trimester to get it done again.
