Hair Dye and Breastfeeding

Is it safe to dye your hair while breastfeeding? I had my son 2 weeks ago...

I do, but haven't even thought about it. I've breastfed now for 11 months. I've never heard of this being dangerous. I'm going to have to go read up!

Once there was a concern with Garnier as they had been contaminated with lead (that was several years ago). But other than that, I have not heard of anything. As long as you are safe, in a well ventilated area, do not rub it into your skin or scalp, and keep covered, you and baby should be fine.
