Im almost 5 months pregnant with my second child. I was reading some things online and there was some things that said that while pregnant, you can still dye your hair, but you had to use dyes with no ammonia or peroxide... Which makes total sense. I didnt dye my hair with my first child, and i havent dyed it with my second. What im asking is, has any mothers out there done it and know if its an okay thing to do?? I would rather be safe then sorry so if being extra safe means not dying my hair, then of course i wont. But the exert i read said that as long as the woman was in her second trimester, and the hair dye was a more natural hair dye with less chemicals and DEF no ammonia or peroxide, then it has showed no proof in being harmful to your baby in any way... What do you ladies think??

i thought the same thing when i was pregnant alot of mothers dye there hair while they were pragnant as long as they were 15 to 20 weeks and they had said there babys turned out heathly and evrything was good. i think it should be fine if you were to wait 20 weeks. and try to avoid getting in the scalp and dont be in a closed room. dont want you to inhaul the fums!!! so yeah i think if you were to do that everything should be okay. and congrads!!!

My ex sister in law is a hair stylist and I asked her that question once and she said the same thing. I never did with my first child and I'm pregnant with my second child but don't have the money or time to get it done this time. But she told me that it is better to have a professional do it when you are pregnant for a just in case kind of thing.
