The limited evidence that’s available suggests that hair colouring while pregnant is safe. The Organization of Teratology Information Services (OTIS), which provides information on potential reproductive risks, says that animal studies are reassuring and that there are no reports of hair dye causing changes in human pregnancies, despite the fact that many women have coloured their hair during pregnancy. OTIS also points out that very little of the chemicals in hair dye is actually absorbed into your system.
That said, if you’re still concerned, consider waiting to colour your hair until the second trimester, when your developing baby is less vulnerable. Also, instead of using an all-over hair color, consider a process like streaking, highlighting, Balayage, or Ombre, in which the chemicals have little or no contact with your scalp. (Any hair-colouring agents absorbed into your system would come through your skin, not through your hair shaft.)
You may have heard that vegetable dyes are a good alternative if you want to avoid using synthetic chemical agents during pregnancy. But buyer beware: Check the ingredients on so-called natural and herbal preparations before buying. In addition to the various “natural” substances listed as ingredients, you’ll often see one or more of the very same synthetic chemical compounds (such as p-phenylenediamine, dihydroxybenzene, and aminophenol) that the major cosmetic companies put in their permanent and semi-permanent dyes.
