Im a hairdresser and i would always advise a client against chemical treatments
during any kind of drug controlled treatment
it makes no difference if the products are on your scalp or just the hair
you can still get a chemical reaction
most people will be ok, but there is always going to be someone who reacts, and that someone could be you.
I did colour my hair whilst i was DR'ing, but it was my choice, clearly didn't take my own advice there!
i was fine, but i would suggest you get any colouring done prior to starting tx.
hair dye wont affect the drugs working properly
but the ingredients of the dye could react with the drugs
hair dye is safe to use in pregnancy, some pregnant women find their hair changes during pregnancy
and sometimes this can affect the dye from developing properly
but it wont harm your baby
Hi - just to say I was a regular hair dyer and spoke with my hairdresser during my tx. I took the descision NOT to colour my hair nor use any tinted body moisturiser during my tx - I avoided all chemicals. (apart from the obvious IVF drugs!)
I have been really lucky to have got a BFP from my tx and have still not got my hair coloured (currently a rather dull flat mouse colour) and still have pasty skin but dont care if it has meant sacrificing 9 months of beauty tx for vanity - trying to get pg meant more to me. I hope I do not offend anyone by my comment and rest assured my hairdresser and the local beauty salon that does st tropez are on standby and will get calls for appointments when I am in labour!!
It's not meant to interfere with the drugs or harm a pregnancy, it's just that the hormones from the drugs and/or pregnancy makes your hair behave differently with the dye. I've highlighted my hair while preggers (and need to do it again so I don't look a sad sack in the new baby photos) and it hasn't done any harm, but when I dyed it during DR/stims it went so disgusting.
It's meant to be more harmful using a darker dye, so I've heard, rather than lightening ones. Is that right, hairdressers?
there are so many chemicals around these days... you can't avoid them all! If fake tan harmed unborn babies I'm sure there'd be a warning a mile high on the product.
darker dyes have the same stuff in them as lighter ones
bleaching is obviously different to tinting, but the dye cant harm your baby
and cant harm you or the ivf drugs
it is just the fact that it COULD cause a chemical reaction
i dyed my hair whilst DR and it was fine
i only tell clients to steer clear while taking IVF drugs because i am not going to be responsible for
somebody's hair to be damaged.
Hormones can affect hair in a big way, some of you may notice a change in your hair when you have your period?
if you are one of these people then i would def keep away from dye's
