Mandatory Survey

Moms, did you color/highlight your hair when you were pregnant? You must answer or I'll take you off my list of friends/family. Yep, that's a scary threat, isn't it?

I did not highlight or color my hair, but I don't usually. I've heard you're not supposed to color, but highlighting is okay. Then some lady I grew up with swore one of her kid's hair came out blond because she dyed her hair mid-pregnancy. Then the kids hair grew out black. I say do whatever the heck you want!

You bet I colored AND highlighted my hair. All my hairdressing friends say its not a big deal unless your in salon for days without leaving...at all. I say do it.

lol.. you are funny.. I don't want to be removed from your list so I just wanted to let you know that.. No I did not color or highlight my hair, but I don't do that anyway so I am probably no help.

Most hair dye anyway is made to be pretty safe, my sister is a hairdresser and she just had a baby and was around hair dye and everything her whole pregnancy.

Yes. In fact I have an appt. on Friday. The only problem I've ever heard--my sister in law almost passed out once with highlights (bleach) in her hair. Just make sure you don't get too hot under the cape or while your color is processing. Chemical--shmemical. Professional color should be fine. Professional.

Let me think.....that was a long time ago. I don't think I did but not because of safely reasons, just wasn't in to it like I am now. Please let me stay on your list!!!

you already know my answer :)

Grandma Duffy said...

I didn't color my hair until I was a grand mother.....

Dana said...

WAIT! am i off the list yet??!? okay, i DIDN'T, but just b/c i didn't really decide to color my hair until after Kade. i've heard all the concerns over it, but i ALSO heard that highlighting is fine, it's more of if it seeps into the scalp, at least that's what i was told. and i think your friends are right, it's not like you do it every day, and see? there are women that did it and had babies, they are fine. so that's my thoughts. late. :)

My book says its fine, do you have "the" pregnancy book? I haven't yet but I am going to before the baby is born because there will be no time after...plus you're taking so many picture, you want to feel good about how you look. :)

lilsusha said...

yes, late 2nd trimester, one time

You KNOW I did! I would've been one unhappy girl without getting my hair did! ;) It's safe, my dear. I wouldn't go sniffing paint or anything, mind you...Every pregnant woman needs a little hair pick-me-up. Getting my hair done does WONDERS for my spirits!

I hi-lighted my hair several times during both pregnancys. My kids came out healthy with very dark hair.

i got highlights when i was in the first trimester of my pregnancy i think! now dont delete me!! haha.

I got pregnant on my honeymoon and we were SUPER poor. . . so my days of coloring went in the wind. . . but I made myself feel better by telling myself it was bad for the baby. If I could do it all over again, WITH MONEY, I'd get my hair done because when I look back at the photos, I looked NASTY! Plus, I hear it isn't actually bad for baby, just "Old Wives Tale #2354."

Elise said...

h-yes i did!!! many times...even all over color and my babe is fine.

Boonie and Jenn said...

You probably don't care about my answer but I have colored my hair. I waited till I was in the 2nd trimester though (just to be sure). Hope it didn't mess up my child!
