When you’re pregnant, the whole world seems full of potential hazards that could harm your baby. We separate the fact from the folklore
The limited research that’s been done on this subject shows that it’s safe to colour your hair while pregnant. Some studies have found that very high doses of the chemicals in hair dyes may cause harm. But these doses are much more than you’d expose yourself to by just colouring your hair. The general consensus seems to be to steer clear of the dye until your second trimester, when the risk of chemical substance harming the baby is much lower.Highlights are perfectly safe as they only affect your hair strand and don’t go into your scalp.
