Ok got my hair done on Monday ( was 4w6d) I've read conflicting info on hair dyes ( blonde- foils then toner on roots for just a bit).
I don't want a debate on if it's good or not I just want to know have you had your hair done and had a viable healthy baby

I'm almost 33 weeks and have had my hair coloured and foiled but not toned (not because toner is bad, I just haven't needed it) about 3-4 times during my pregnancy (including the day I found out I was pregnant and i was only 3 weeks 6 days), and I have a very active bub in my belly and everything seems to be perfect with her so far.
Everything I've read on the topic says that if anything did cross to the baby, it would be the most minute amount that it is very unlikely to cause any problems. I've read that if you're concerned, foils are the best option because the colour shouldn't touch your scalp in the way it would for an all-over colour, so you're much less likely to absorb it into your blood ****** to potentially pass on to bub.
All the best for the rest of your pregnancy :-)

I had my hair done both at home and professionally with all 3 of my babies and not a problem with a single one.... Probably more dangerous to walk around in a smog laden city!

My cousin is a hair dresser and worked and dyed her hair the entire way through both her pregnancies both kids perfectly fine. The concern was ages ago alot of dyes had harsh chemicals not so much now

There's no real research done on this because it's unethical to test on pregnant women... so anything about its safety is a guess at best.
I lightened (so bleached) part of my hair (foils) when I was pregnant. The only health issues she's suffered in her 7+ years of life is she had her tonsils and adenoids removed because they were quite massive. Mine are too though, and her Dad had his removed as a child, so I doubt that has anything to do with hair dye.

If you're really worried, look into using hemp to dye your hair. Health shops also sell dyes that are less chemically.
Black hair dye is the main culprit in adverse reactions ie rashes.
