Don't Dye Hair While Pregnant

Tuesday, 11 December 2012 09:24 AM EST

Question: I am a 37-year-old woman trying for my first baby. I normally dye my hair a darker shade. Should I discontinue this during my pregnancy? I’ve heard conflicting advice.

Dr. Cwynar's answer:
When it comes to babies I'm a purist. Different products contain different ingredients. Even when hair systems say they are organically based there is still a risk of toxicity to the fetus and these are not as well controlled by any drug-enforcing agency. My rule of thumb is NOT to get hair colored while pregnant nor while nursing.

Do not color your hair or use hair dyes during pregnancy or while nursing.
