I am bad...I have been coloring my hair the whole time. I did try and space it out- so I only colored it once during the first trimester when I knew I was pregnant. Most of what I read said their wasn't any evidence to show that it was bad- especially with the newer dyes that they have. Aveda also makes an all natural dye that is suppose to be safer, but you have to go to a salon that carries it. I did feel a bit guilty, but I just could stand to look at myself with my dark roots and I really couldn't find any evidence that is would harm the baby. Plus, I have had alot of friends who have continued to color their hair during pregnancy with no ill effects to the baby.

can't you do the 'semi-permanent' coloring? Seems that would be a good alternative to the real deal.

:Ythat: Could you use a rinse or something until you are in your second trimester? I colored while I pg, but both times I waited until after my first trimester and used ammonia free dyes.

What I wound up doing was jut getting highlight/lowlights. She knew what was up so I stayed in a well ventilated area the whole time and nothing touched my skin anywhere. There are still some grays showing on my temple area and through the top but I decided at the last minute to get it CHOPPED so it'll at least be a little more manageable and out of my face for summer.

Thanks ladies!
