Hello ladies. I'm starting to feel a bit dull, and wanted to either perm my hair, or dye, and cut it. Are these ok to do while pregnant?

here's some info on coloring your hair while preg.
it says not to do it during the first 3 months of pregnancy
it also says that it's safer to do highlights with foil
since the dye can be absorbed through the scalp... doing foil the dye
doesn't directly touch the scalp and the foil reduces the fumes, also

hope this helped =)

The paperwork that my ob gave me says that it is perfectly safe to do both while pregnant because they have actually found that the amount that is absorbed through your skin is not significant enough to pose any risk for the baby. I would like to warn you though that due to a lot of the hormones during pregnancy your hair can react quite differently to both perms and dyes. My beautician literally refuses to dye my hair while I'm pregnant cuz she doesn't want it to like turn out green or something and then have me crying. She said that it's just not a good idea to do it if you can't bear the thought of it not turning out well. I decided to forgo my highlights during pregnancy and I will catch up with a makeover after the baby gets here.

I know what you mean. I've thought about maybe getting some lowlights put in in a month or two to kinda blend in all my highlights but I'm so scared about doing it after she told me that. Maybe you should just try a new do and go to the mall and have someone do your makeup at one of the make up counters. That would make me feel good.

Yeah i might just settle with the hair cut. I can wait to do the perm, or dye. My hair is so freaking thick i can't do anything with it, and i'm just so tired of wearing it up in pony tails. I can't even find a clip anymore that will hold my hair up.

I'm scared to go short though. Being pregnant i don't want something that will make me look really heavy. But yes my face is round. I tried a hair style about 4 months ago. Right after i got pregnant, and it was awful. I'm still recovering from it lol. I'm mostly doing this for my fiance too. He loves when i wear my hair down. But along with the thickness it gets really really frizzy.
