You can but do it in a well ventilated area it's not the chemicals on your head which are bad it's the breathing it in which is bad x

I dyed my hair a few times during my last pregnancy and done it twice during this one. Exactly as what has already been said just make sure your in a well ventilated room and if the smell starts to get over powering stop and stand at a window or door etc for couple minutes

You can- many people have different opinions on it though and some say not to do it.  For myself, I always figured it wouldn't hurt to wait.

If your going to dye your hair make sure you get ammonia free. Its much safer for yoi and the baby.  Leaving the window opened whole your doing your hair is a good idea as well.

Yep. I actually just did a couple of weeks ago. I think I'm gonna do blue next. Probably in about a month. My first one I did it about 4 times and then chopped all my hair off lol. And now with this baby I've done it once but plan on doing it some more. I usually go outside to do it. It's nice to sit on our porch swing and relax. Do it! Moms need to remember to do things for them and not everything for their kids ;)

I have dyed my hair. I have been told to wear one of those surgical masks to help with the fumes. I haven't had any problems.

Do it in a well ventilated area nd void putting it directly onto scalp.
They've begun to do tests on hair dye safety and so far it's shown no harm but it's always best to do things the safest way possible!
