Yep have always dyed my hair when pregnant. I am also having a spray tan in 3 weeks for a wedding I am going to.

Yes, definitely. I don't think hair dye chemicals leech into your milk do they? I am assuming they don't.

I thought the advice was not too if you are pregnant. therefore I wouldnt when feeding either.

The fact of the matter is, they don't really know what the longterm affects are. Or what the effects are of mixing those chemicals with any other of the thousands of chemcials babies now get exposed to.

Guess it depends on how bad your roots are grin

My Toni & Guy hairdresser said it was ok when pregnant.
