Temporary Haircolor

I was wondering if tempory haircolor is allowed during pregnancy. My hair has turned a redish color on the ends from the sun and I need a touch up untill it grows out. Any good products to recommend if it is safe? I was thinking like fanci-full or somthing along those lines.

There are conflicting viewpoints on this. Some say that the chemicals can be absorbed through your skin and travel to your baby, possibly harming it. Others say it's not there long enough to do that. Regardless, if you decide to do it, keep the room WELL-VENTILATED as the chemical fumes ARE harmful. I liken it to paint. I am unable to paint the baby's room as I have been told that the fumes are harmful to inhale and that getting paint on the skin absorbs into the blood-stream and harms the baby. If paint can do this, I'm staying away from hair-dye, and I NEED a touch-up!

I've permanantly colored my hair twice in the second trimester. I just did it in a well ventilated room. Didn't bother me any.

Heidi, it didn't bother you....what about the baby? How can you be sure it didn't bother him/her?

Most temporary haircolor does not contain ammonia (generally the main concern in haircoloring during pregnancy) I am a hairdresser and 5 months pregnant. I have voiced my concerns with chemicals to my doctor, you should do the same. Every doctor has a different opinion; he told me studies have been done and have not proven that ammonia crosses the placenta. But be sure if you are doing this yourself you are in a well ventilated room. But more than likely you will find that temp. haircolor does not have as strong of a odor as permanent haircolor, as generally it does not contain ammonia.
