Hair dye and self tan

Hi there

Would just like second opinions pls...
Would like to dye my hair at the salon...Im 21 weeks pregnant. Is it safe??

Also, I have been using a body lotion that contains a hint of self tan lotion in it. I apply it on my legs once a day. Is that safe form my baby??

The hairdye shouldn't be a problem.Very little lotion is absorbed through the skin, so this shouldn't be a problem either.\

Best wishes

Hi. I was told not to dye my hair, but my hairdresser says that foils are fine as the dye doesn' t touch the scalp.
