I'm not sure if I can dye my hair or not.
I'm 4 weeks pregnant and no matter how much I google about this I get mixed answers.
I wanted to dye my hair to my natural colour but will that cause harm to my baby? are there any alternatives?

Dying my hair?

Depends on what you get done. If its on scalp they say not to unless you use a non toxic organic dye. They are around- look in healthy life. I asked my hairdresser about me but she said as long as its just fouls you are fine!

I waited until I was out of my first trimester to colour my hair, and when I did I only used a natural, organic dye from Healthy Life. This product was actually so much better than I expected and I will probably keep using it after bubs is born.
If you know the number your old colour would be (eg 8N) then just buy the same in the organic dye.

Hi ladies I am a hairdresser and currently 34 weeks pregnant.
There is nothing scientifically proven that tinting or coloring your hair is harmful.
It's all down to personal choice, like painting your nails, and still using household cleaning products etc.
Alot of my clients that are paranoid I reccomened a semi permanent as they have either no or low ammonia.
Hair tints have come along way these days and aren't harmful.
So don't be scared of it makes you feel better and give u a lift then do it!

I buy the non-chemical stuff from the health food shop (pregnant or otherwise). Maybe try that one instead? (I'm not sure whether actual hair dye is a problem while pregnant though)

I waited until I was out of my first trimester and just bought a kit, and then I got mine done at the hairdressers on Tuesday - how much better do I feel for it!! Most of the research suggests that these days its fine to dye your hair as the dyes are far less toxic.

my OB said they can't actually tell from research that is why he suggested not to do it - however they can't say it harms the baby (but on the flip side they can't say it is safe either) - i think it falls into the category of a "maybe" risk. So it is up to the individual with how careful you want to be.
