Hey guys, I hope you're all well and getting into the Christmas spirit?! I know it's still November but I just can't help myself. I just love the Christmas holidays, I do still have lots of shopping to do but I love going late night shopping and taking in all of the festive spirit. Anyway, I'm not here to talk Christmas today although if you haven't booked your next hair appointment I'd get booking right away, we are open late most nights and spaces are filling up fast!
Today I wanted to just talk about something I have been asked a lot recently and that is "Can you dye your hair when pregnant?" The reason I've been asked this is because I'm currently 28 weeks pregnant with my third child. I remember when I fell pregnant with my first child I didn't have my hair dyed until after my 12 week appointment but the answer to your question is yes, It's absolutely fine to dye your hair during pregnancy and I've had mine dyed from the very start with this baby and it's been absolutely fine.
However I would recommend mentioning that you are pregnant to your hairdresser before booking. I have foils so the colour never touches my scalp. Highlighting your hair, by putting the dye only on to strands of hair, also reduces any risk. The chemicals used are only absorbed by your hair, and not by your scalp or bloodstream. Your hair can change during pregnancy, it may react differently to colouring or perming than it usually does and become more or less absorbent, frizzy or unpredictable. If you are worried then I'd recommend having a strand test to see how the colour reacts, and if it takes how it usually would.
I hope that has answered a few questions if you are pregnant and Congratulations! Get yourself booked into the salon for a lovely pamper.
