What is the recommendation now? I'm not thinking bleach, just a box of brunette to cover my frumpy greys!

You'll be fine. Just make sure it's a well ventilated rm

highlights bleach dont touch the scalp so not that bad colour out bottle goes on scalp loads of people do it know when pregnant and no problems you might find like i did that it just washs out i did hair 4 times and it washed out so had to leave it even a perm washed out from the hairdressers drove me nuts

Just patch test please. Pregnancy changes many things and you may find you are allergic all of the sudden.

Actually, I remember doing my hair during my last pregnancy and it went ginger...maybe I'll go to the hairdressers instead!

My hairdresser won't do colour that touches scalp during pregnancy so I make do with foils. Don't think there's ever been any conclusive evidence to say whether it can be harmful or not so like to be a bit cautious. I've had my hair coloured about every 5 wks during this pregnancy and all my other 3.

My hairdresser would do it but I chose to have foils instead. I didn't have full tint until well into pregnancy,about 30 weeks I think.
