Hair dye...

I'm after some advice on hair dye! I home dye an all over blonde - the advice online is very varied! What do you all think? Is it safe?! I'm currently 9 weeks and 4 days.

Thanks so much smile

Hi Bex, I'm a hairdresser, I coloured my own hair and worked with hair colour while I was pregnant, and have coloured any clients who were pregnant, including blondes, never ever had an issue. It's fine!!!

I think the general advice is now that it's fine - the NHS website says go for it, if you're really nervous wait until 12 weeks but it should be fine.

Thank you!!! Such a relief as I hate roots and greys!! Might stretch it out till 12 weeks - so relieved! Xx

I don't think there's any evidence it's unsafe. I've had mine done but changed from having bleach to a colour instead as you can get more sensitive when pregnant and I find bleach itchy at the best of times so didn't want it to be worse than normal!

I've been doing mine all through my pregnancy. Even before 12 weeks. All absolutely fine! I did ask my midwife recently and she just said to do a patch test.... Which I haven't.....

Haha I would be the same - never done a patch test in my life! Looking forward to getting rid of the dreaded roots xx
