Alternatives to Bleaching/Dyeing Hair
There are many alternatives to bleaching/dyeing hair. One such alternative is using henna. Because henna is a type of dye that comes from a plant, it is free from harmful chemicals.
Another tip for bleaching/dyeing hair would be having only the tips of the hair dyed. This way, pregnant women don’t have to worry since the dye does not make direct contact with the scalp.
There is nothing wrong with pregnant women wanting to look and feel good by having their hair dyed. Should they choose to color their hair while pregnant, they should make sure to take basic safety precautions, and to not bleach or dye hair if they are allergic. The bottom line is there is much we do not know about the health risks of hair dyes. If pregnant women want to stay on the safe side, then it is better to wait after the first trimester or until they have delivered their baby to have their hair dyed.
