I am supposed to be getting my hair dyed at the weekend. I'm glad I found this question because I didn't think anything of it before! I would ask the hairdresser but my sis is doing it for me at home! I hope it is safe because I'm really bored with plain old brown! Anyone know anything?????
The only way anything like this would be harmful is if it got into your system, ruthie, and even then, it would be enormously difficult for it to transfer to your milk. Hair dye stays on your head. Nail varnish stays on your nails. You might smell it a bit - but unless you are going to put a nosegay of flowers in a permanent spot under your baby's nostrils for the next few years, to absorb all the smells of different stuff in the world, then I cannot see the point of worrying about a bit of cosmetic.
I wish women didn't worry about this sort of stuff. What's the point? You might as well not let your baby anywhere near your skin or your hair , and avoid cuddles and kisses, in case he smells/licks/tastes/breathes in your shower gel......
Not getting at you, Ruthie. Just sad at the fears too many women have.
