I was wondering if any of you have noticed that your hair has got darker during your pregnancy. I have noticed a huge change in my hair. I have been blonde all my bright blonde and my hair is almost a sandy blonde now and you can see red in it. I just thought this was strange. I can't find anything on the web about it though. I did read something about some women get red highlights when they're having a girl but I have been told I'm having a boy. I hope it's a boy! Anybody else noticed this?

Well... I cna't help much there, my hair is naturally dark brown, almost black, but I am part Irish and I generally get red highlights.... I'm having a girl so I really don't know if that myth is true or not since my highlights usually show up in the summer. My hair does feel different though!

All my life my hair was light blond. After having my son 9 years ago it is a dark dirty blond to the point I now highlight it. well since this pregnancy my roots (since I have not highlighted) are brown. I think its a hormone change that darkens your hair especially if its blond. I keep saying after this pregnancy I won't be blond anymore. These will make three boys for me.

Mrssolo, I had to get highlights too. I've never had hair this dark and its like ahhh. I can even see the red in my eyebrows. I'm so use to being blonde..I don't want to be a red head..haha.

haha you know that is interesting. I have noticed my hair darker then it was. Naturally I am a light brunette but it seems to have a reddish brown color now and I havent dyed it since last march. haha

hormones definetely affect your hair a lot, both color and texture. i have been dyeing my hair so im not sure if the color has changed but the curl is a lot tighter than usual. i know that in my family that all the blondes get a bit darker during puberty which i would a__sume is cause of hormones so maybe the same concept? except with pregnancy it will probably go back after i would a__sume

I hope it does go back...but if not its okay. Totally worth it!
