Getting Pregnant Q&A: Is dying your hair safe during pregnancy?

Q.

I've been dying my hair for years. Is it safe to while I'm pregnant?

A.

Dr. Roman says: In general, hair dye appears to be safe during pregnancy, but no scientific studies have conclusively determined this. To minimize the potential risks, the dye should avoid contact with your scalp. If possible, consider highlights; the dye solution does not touch the scalp and is covered in foil. Wait until after the first trimester to color your hair.
