Hair color and pregnancy
Can I use permanent haircolor, it contains ammonia? Surely it would not be as strong as salon color? I am 7 months pregnant.

Thanks

Hi Natasha
Be very careful to do things like home perms and colouring while you are pregnant - due to the changed hormones your hair may not react as usual and may fall out, break, not take the colour/perm etc. Rather talk to your hairdresser if you can't go without it!!
