It’s no secret that while the “trend” seems to be reversing, many modern moms waited until they were in their late 20, 30s and even 40s to start or add to their family. And, besides being mare mature and hopefully better prepared and financially secure soon-to-be moms/parents, it also means they are likely to have a few more greys as well. And, it they are anything like me, they’ve probably had them since their late teens. But, these modern and mature moms, perhaps now more than ever want to embrace their pregnancy with the same “sexy” spirit that they embrace most of what they do, and that includes NOT compromising their style or their hair colour. On the other hand, moms-to-be don’t want to put their baby’s health at risk with risky behaviours including using toxic hair dyes.

The good news is that according to experts, keeping up appearances, by keeping up your “natural” hair colour may not be as hairy as you think. They suggest that for the most part, dying your hair during pregnancy seems safe as per the scientific studies that have been conducted to date. They add however that airing on the side of caution is likely a good consideration. Experts suggest keeping dye from making direct contact with your scalp or considering highlights for the duration of your gestation instead. But, wait until you get past your first trimester before making an appointment. Another opting, especially if you need to touchup in your first three months of pregnancy is opting of an all-natural hair colour such as henna, and looking for dyes that are ammonia or peroxide free (especially for the latter part of your pregnancy). For do-it-yourselfers, opt for brands with the least amount of chemicals and make sure the room you are working in is well ventilated. In addition you’ll want to double up on the gloves ensuring that the dye doesn’t permeate your skin. Lastly, if you make a salon appointment, ask for the earliest appointment necessary so that you’re exposed to the minimal amount of chemicals and chemical fumes as possible.
