Yes absolutely.....I continued with foils during both my pregnancies...I don't think there's anything wrong with it...it's taking the "safety in pregnancy" message too far I think (I'm preparing to be flamed...)
Of course. The dyes aren't absorbed into the blood stream. Odours are minimal - hairdressers inhale a lot more during the course of their working day. If you're concerned go to the salon & get foils (colour doesn't touch the scalp).
I didn't know that some women didn't dye thier hair in PG and happily continued to have foils and colour right through my whole pg. My daughter was fine and still is 13 yrs later.
Now that I know about it, I probably will give the first trimester a miss for colour but I don't think after that I will worry. Pregnancy can make you feel a bit ordinary anyway, so having your hair done is a great boost.
All the best

I second Ehill's sentiment... Some days when nothing fits, and I'm swollen, puffy and blotchy, I don't need to deal with *blah* hair. I'm just careful when DIY'ing to make sure the windows are wide open and I've got the ventilation fan on.
No I didn't, in my opinion I didn't want my bub exposed to any extra chemicals. However small the risk may be, I thought its only 9 months and also did as much natural, non petro chemical etc shampoo and makeup.
I did but I must say my scalp was a bit sensitive in first trimester, I was using moo goo shampoo as skin was so sensitive so I just waited and it went away so off to hairdressers... I checked and all I found was that it was considered safe and yes, having nice hair does help when you feel blah!! I shall get it done just before baby comes! And it's very well ventilated etc at my hairdressers ....
