This is a very good and important question.Only very tiny amounts of hair dyes and other chemicals used on the hair are absorbed into the body and even tinier amounts may enter breast milk. These amounts are so small that it is considered to be safe for your baby. No problems have ever been reported when breastfeeding mothers use these treatments.
