    Default Question about hairdresser when pregnant

    I'm just after some opinions please.. I'm booked in to get my hair coloured (I normally get foils, no toner) for a special occasion in a couple of weeks but I've just found out I'm pregnant. I'll be around 6 weeks at the time of the appointment. The hairdresser is well ventilated and I'm not sure how much chemical is absorbed during the colouring. What would you do? Get your hair done or go to the event and hope no-one points and laughs at your roots!

    It is personal preference but I changed from getting an all over colour to foils whilst pregnant as the chemicals are not sitting on your scalp for long periods. It is what the hairdresser recommended to me.

    I'm nearly 12 weeks and just booked in to have my roots done, hadn't really thought about it much. I'll ask the hairdresser more about it when I'm there...

    I don't usually get my hair done during first 12 weeks but that is my personal preference. I usually have all over colour that sits on my hair for 30 mins or so. I just prefer not to but you bet I book in as soon as I'm past the early stage!

    I would do it, imagine how much exposure the hairdresser has to those chemicals everyday at work, plenty if them work all throughout their pregnancies without any problems.

    I would do it. To me its no different to using washing up liquid or wearing make up everyday

    I asked my OB about this a few weeks ago & she said it was fine to do but a personal preference. I ended up getting mine coloured & was glad I had it done afterwards

    I had foils several times throughout my pregnancy, and have a perfect 5 year old! I couldn't find any information to suggest there is any risk and if there was it would be included in the govt. health advice for pregnant women.
