I actually don't think it's unsafe to dye your hair during your pregnancy. Tests have shown that very little hair dye is absorbed into your system. Although I know some people are skeptical so you could wait till the second semester to dye/color your hair. With that being said my daughter his 18 months old and had highlights done when she was 16 months old it didn't have any impact on her so I would say that you are safe to do so. If you are concerned you can speak to your doctor.
