Curious about the safety
Is it safe and ok to dye hair and do nails while pregnant? I'm half way through my 8 wks..

I don't see why nails would be an issue. I guess it's a case of reading the details on the hair dye box / talking to your hairdresser - just to make sure no nasty chemicals.

I highlight my hair. I did during my first two pregnancies and I just had my hair done a week ago. I'm 9 weeks along. I can't say it's safe but I've broken the rules and done it without issues. Good luck!

During my first pregnancy I had my hair colored towards the end of my second trimester. My hair stylist used ammonia free hair dye. It didn't have a scent at all. Right now I need it bad, but have decided to wait until my second trimester. I'm 9 wks 5days, so I just have to wait a couple more weeks.

You should wait till 12 weeks till dying your hair apparently. However my roots were awful so two weeks before I done mine but saw no problems

Unless you have wounds or broken skin on your scalp, hair dye is fine, just do a test before as hormones might make you slightly more sensitive to chemicals but it won't harm baby
