I booked in to get my hair done next week, restyle and balayage. But shortly after booking I got my positive. I thought as the bleach wouldn't be going to my roots (I've dark hair so would be lightening the lengths and ends) I'd be fine. But I need to cancel it, don't I?
Anyone got a convincing excuse to tell my friend as she knows I was so excited when booking it!
I'm 40+3 with my first child OP and have definitely learnt throughout pregnancy that so many people/ Google sites will put the fear of God into you about doing pretty much anything. I tend to go by the NHS recommendations as they cite relevant research so feels more evidence-based. (And for what it's worth I've continued to dye my hair every 8 weeks throughout pregnancy just as I did before!) The only thing I would give you a heads up on is that sometimes being pregnant means your hair doesn't respond to dye in the same way- so at times my hair has gone much darker than it would have previously or alternatively now I'm at the end I notice that it doesn't really absorb dye as well as it used to. But then I dye my hair myself whereas a salon will be a better place to judge how to time the dye!
I know it won't be touching your scalp but make sure you tell your hairdresser you're pregnant anyway as your hormones can affect dye and, also, make bleach take more quickly as your body temp may be higher.
