    I'm not sure that hair dye can permeate the scalp, if it did I'm sure I wouldn't need my roots done as often! And if it can, and get into the blood ******, I think we all should be concerned pregnant or not.

    It sure does permeate and get into the blood ******. I use Herbatint, whether pg or not (their Flash Fashion Colours range ~ hard to get, but it's out there!). Ammonia free, free of lots of the gnarlier chemicals, actually. And beaut colour that leaves your hair really glossy and healthy-feeling. It really takes well. I order it in at my health food shop.

    I waited till I was 36 weeks to get only a t-sect of foils, when I got home I rewashed my hair incase there was any residue left as I don't think they can wash your hair that well in those chair sinks.

    I did mine at home, and waited until the third trimester (more because I kept forgetting to buy the dye then any other reason). I did it in a very well ventilated space, and didn't keep it on as long as I usually do. I also picked a colour very close to my natural colour so I won't need to do it again for this pregnancy .

    I probably wouldn't have bothered with it, but I'm a bit vain and everyone kept pointing out how grey I'm getting (a touch at the temples, but enough that I got upset that people would think I'm my baby's grandmother, which amused my hubby no end Hormones ).

    I had mine done... And pregnant hairdressers work with the dyes constantly so I didn't see the harm

    That was my way of thinking exactly. Here's a link, which may give you more info, basically it says there's no evidence to say that it does cause birth defects and that salon formulas contain very little toxins, home dyes however tend to be worse

    it was probably more dangerous like 20 yrs ago but chemicals in hair colour has come a looong way.

    Ill never forget a woman who was getting her hair cut in my salon and i suggested a colour 'no way im pregnant!' but proceeded to go out for cigarette while her treatment was on.

    but yea its all good!!
