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

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
