YES! This isn't 1954 and the dye is dangerous. It is completely safe, however... because you are pregnant, the color may come out differently then if you weren't pregnant.

I asked my OB that question as soon as I got pregnant.  She never gave me any restrictions at all (nothing about certain times being okay and others not), and told me that, unless I was planning to ingest the hair dye (like, eat or drink it!), it could do the baby no harm.  She did tell me to stay away from the tanning bed, though.  I have colored my hair at regular intervals through two prenancies, and both my girls are fine.  They do both have blonde hair, though...  Hmmm.  :)

I am the GM for hair salons and there is no proven evidence linking hair color and/or bleach to anything harmful during pregnancy. I myself am 6 months pregnant and have colored my hair 5 times already.

I've had my hair done at the salon and from the box and both of my children came out healthy as ever. I was told not to do it in the first months of the pregnancy but at 7 1/2 mths, it shouldn't be a problem.

I am a cosmetologist of 17 years, and colored my hair thru 2 pregnancys. Its hard enough feeling icky, roots don't help . I wouldn't suggest box color, because i don't know whats in it. Go to a Sally beauty supply . What are you attempting to achieve?

Not from a box or anything, as long as it doesn't have bleach in it. I love to get my hair done and I was told that as long as the stylist stays away from the roots you should be fine
