Default coloring your hairduring pregnancy

Did you do it?

I am seriously gray so it's not for "glamorous" purposes but simply to not look like a freak. I usually just to highlights the first tri so it's not touching my scalp, but it's baaaaaaad.

I think most of what I've read says it's ok, but I'm so nervous about it since I haven't had that first u/s yet.

I coloured and highlighted during my pregnancy. I just made sure that the fumes weren't making me nauseous and that they didn't go right down to the very roots....otherwise, my stylists say that it is not a problem. And besides, if it makes you feel good, especially at the onset of pregnancy, I say why not!

See my stylist does and all-over color and then highlights so it doesn't look freaky.

I had mine done but waited until I was in my 2nd trimester. I had highlights done and between each highlight she added color. We just made sure not to touch the scalp.

I waited until the 2nd trimester "just in case"...

Can you hold out until you go back to school in the fall?
