  • Hi i am a a colour technician , now this is a tricky one for me, as i have specialised in colouring for 14 years and at no point has any company told me it is unsafe to colour hair whilst pregnant. In general we as a company have to skin test every client(sensitivity test) every 3 months if they have not had treatment in that time, and i have never advised a client not to colour hair whilst pregnant - that is until i got pregnant myself!!!! If you google hair colouring whilst pregnant it will advise you not to do it in the first 12 weeks. This is basically becouse there is no proof either way that it could do anything. Companys just have to cover their backs. I had my hair coloured at 5 weeks and 11 weeks . My hands are covered in the stuff every day so i really hope there is nothing in it. Highlights would be absolutely fine anyway as dye does not directly touch the scalp. I work for very large organisation and would be informed of any changes regarding advise while pregnant., but at the end of the day if you are unsure avoid it . Sorry to have waffled on but what i am trying to say is most hairdressers will say it is fine becouse that is what we are led to beleive.
  • HI,
    I colour my full head of hair, I spoke with my midwife and hairdresser and neither of them said their was information to state yeah or neah on the matter.
    I have mine coloured every 4 and half weeks normally but while pregnant I have gone 5 and half weeks....
  • hi i saw this on "this morning" yesterday where they were giving make overs to preg women, the hairdresser charles worthington said colouring pregnancy is fine but colour may not turn out exact as it would normally cause of changes in hair, but that it cant harm baby x
