It is probably safe, but still best to avoid in the first trimester.

Best wishes

Hi Lolly,
Don't rush off yet - my gynae recommended not to do any high-lighting or dyeing - don't worry if you have done - but if you can avoid it do - apparently the chemicals get absorbed through your scalp - best to avoid in particular in the first trimester.

Just be carefull in the early "forming months" there have been tests that they have found traces of hair die in womens wee. Its a strange substance in your body and complete safey in pregnancy has not been established. Well they say not to believe everything you read and hear, but even if there is one scientist that proves it harmfull i will not do it.

All the best with your pregnancy.

Yes it's fine, but due to your changes hormones the colour doesn't always 'take' as well, and the colour sometimes comes out a bit different to normal...
