My silver bits are really coming through  :(
I'm 35 weeks pregnant tomorrow , do you think it's safe for me to have a full head hair dye done ? I normally go a reddish brownish colour .
^feedback^
Thanks

Most people say it's fine to dye your hair when pregnant and that the only problem may be that the colour won't come out the same. However, I have had terrible reactions to hair dye since having our LO. I didn't dye my hair during pregnancy as I was too nervous to do so. I'm still b/feeding, so maybe that has something to do with it, but on the 3 occasions I have tried to dye my hair - with non-permanent dye and henna - I have had TERRIBLE headaches, itchiness, redness and nausea for days. And I never used to react like this to these dyes before I got pregnant and had our LO.

I am probably the only one to have had this experience - no-one else seems to have any problems, so I don't want to scare you. And you probably meant that you would go to a hairdresser's, whilst I coloured mine at home. However, it's worth bearing in mind that your hormones can do weird things when it comes to hair dye!

I just wish I could dye my hair right now though - it's very depressing with all the grey hairs!

Last time around I had blond highlights done with the foils by a proper salon and then just used a blond root touch up kit every so often to hide the grey bits as I figured this way there wasn't much dye/chemical going on to the scalp.  However, this time I can't be bothered so have just used my usual dye albeit a bit less frequently.  I have gone back to a blonder shade as I have heard that it is the darker dyes which potentially cause more reaction.  I haven't found anything to say dye is unsafe - just that it might not come out the same colour as usual....

I'd go with your instincts Free - but just remember that DH WILL be sticking a camera in your face immediatly after the birth  ;D  ;D  ;D  ^idiot^

I have also been wondering what to do and have asked so many people... Some say yes and some say no... I bought one of those natural Organic dyes and hardly did anything to covrer up the greys.. I asked the colour specialist again at my hairdressers last week and he suggested a semi-perminant gloss as it does not contain peroxide and did a skin test on me too... so now I am thinking of doing this but not yet decided....

Well, I must say my hair is looking rather 'nice and easy' today ;D ;D I can't afford £40+ every 4-6 weeks at the local hairdresser and refuse to go be grey :-\
