    My hair was bleached blonde when I found out I was pregnant. I personally decided to wait until 13 weeks and then dyed my hair my natural colour (brown) so I wouldnt have to worry about it again during my pregnancy. There are enough things to worry about over the 9months (and following few months with a newbie) without factoring in my regrowth Lol

    Some people forget that they are putting some extremely harsh chemicals onto your head.

    In saying that, If your happy to do it and think its safe enough. Go for it. As I said its all untested.
    They aren't untested chemicals, they simply aren't tested on pregnant women because that is illegal and unethical

    also my colour brands have ammonia free colours and lighteners for this reason, a people are becoming more aware/wary

    Exactly. You have no idea what it does to a pregnant woman and an unborn baby. Untested.

    This exactly. First at 5 weeks and then every 6 weeks from there. In my arms is a healthy 4 month old baby.

    I've coloured my hair through 4 pregnancies and will continue to do so. My OB said it's fine (2 different OBs). I give up so much when pregnant - this is one thing I'm not giving up! But I couldn't give a rats what others do - each to their own.

    No recent studies have found any harm from colouring your hair while pregnant. Even if the chemicals touch your scalp (which they do when tinting your hair a permanent colour), the amount that crosses to your blood****** is so slight that no link has been found between it and any harmful effects.

    My hair is naturally blonde, but I dye it dark brown, and so I did a lot of research into this before colouring it during this pregnancy. I'm comfortable that on the basis of the evidence available there is no harm, and I've continued to dye mine throughout. My obstetrician has agreed with this too.

    I'm a "by the book" follow every precautionary measures, be 100% safe because if anything happened I couldn't cope with the guilt weather it be unrelated or not.

    If someone wants to dye their hair or eat soft cheese and sushi, that's fine! I'm honestly not judging. I know I couldn't forgive myself if anything happened, I'd always wonder "was it because I dyed my hair" sounds completely irrational but I know that's how my mind would work

    Thank u for all your honest opinions and experiences girls. I have checked with my Fertility specialist (also used to be an on) and he has said it's perfectly fine, so I have booked in tomorrow to get my regrowth done I am sure Bubs is going to be fine and I am going to feel soooo much better about myself which I'm sure will be good for baby too
