Is Haircolor Safe During Pregnancy?

If you are pregnant or plan to be pregnant at some point in the future, you may have wondered if it’s safe to have your hair colored. I know I did. Here’s an excerpt from the article I wrote on the topic for Babble.

I had just started my first job as a hairstylist and colorist at the start of 2007 when I found out I was pregnant with my first child. Naturally, I freaked out. “Would the chemicals I was exposed to at work harm my baby?” I worried. I knew I could find ways to avoid other chemicals like hairspray and perm solution but I work with hair dyes all day long. I get it on my hands, I breathe the fumes, I take my breaks in the same room it’s mixed in, and I have my own hair colored. Colleagues assured me I’d be fine, but I’m a bit of a worrier and I was skeptical. So I set out to find out if hair color is truly safe for pregnant women.

To learn what I discovered, read the rest of the article here.
