Hi Doc

Is it safe to dye your hair in pregnancy? Is any stage safer than another?
Thanks

I think the recommendation is not to use hair dye as small amounts can be absorbed. Practically, it probably doesn't make too much difference. If you are going to use it, avoid the first three months of pregnancy.
