I have recently found out im 6 weeks pregnant with my second child. I use live colour xxl black hair dye and want to colour my hair again but dont know if it is safe because of chemicals in black hair dyes, can anyone give me advice on if black dye is safe when pregnant

Many experts advise mothers-to-be to wait until after 12 weeks of pregnancy before dying their hair. That’s because the first 12 weeks are a time of major development for your baby: organs are taking shape, muscles and vocal chords are forming, and nail beds and hair follicles are starting to develop. Even though you don’t absorb much of the chemicals in hair dye, you don't want to take chances with your child.

If you choose to color your hair, it's better to use a semi-permanent, ammonia free dye. Try to get as little as possible on the scalp/skin. Make sure the area has good ventilation so you're not breathing the fumes. Also, hormonal changes can make your hair react differently, so you might not get the color/coverage you expect even from your regular formula.
