This is ok yes?
I’ve been putting it off mainly because I’m still ill but I’m fed up of my scruffy looking hair! Not had it done for over 20 weeks!!
Are the fumes a problem? Do I need to ask them to leave the door open?
I have foils so no contact with my skin.

I had mine done at 13 weeks. My hairdresser said foils were fine, I think I read somewhere that there isn't any proof of risks but some people like to wait until after 12 weeks.
It'll be fine. Car exhaust is more harmful.

i read on babycentre that sometimes it takes bleach a bit longer to develop but that its fine 3 or 4 times, for any harm to be caused you would need to be having it done 2-3 times a week !

It's fine. Main problems are that colours may react differently, longer to take etc but your hairdresser will sort that and scalp map also be more sensitive but with foils it barely touches your scalp

Thanks everyone, I’ve text him asking for an appointment. I’m weirdly excited about going and doing something quite normal really! :)

Yep fine! I have had my colour and highlights done several times.

I always thought it was a no no to dye hair. Went all pregnancy without dying it! Bloody hell!

Hairdresser here! highlights are fine! they are more concerned about hair colour that gets painted straight on to the scalp, there has never been any proof of hair colourant affecting a baby however it is still a chemical going onto your skin,
the only thing you have to consider is that hair colour can sometimes not take during pregnancy due to the amount of hormones in your body, bleach is usually ok as bleach take away the colour pigment in your hair as it bleaches it (clue in the name) as when you add a colour to the hair shaft then that colour can be affected
mine is not taking at the moment, the colour i have used on my hair for years has not turned a different colour lol !

Foils will be fine. I had to stop bleaching mine, as I put it directly onto my scalp.
Hope it makes you feel fab. I felt like shite, not being able to have my pink hair during my pregnancy...
