Pregnant and I am a hair stylist

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello! New here. I am pregnant due June 8th (sorry I couldn't find the June 2012 thread). I just finished beauty school a few months ago and work at a salon. I am starting to learn about all the chemical hazards in these products. However I also need the money right now so quitting what I do is not an option. I try not to use much hair spray at all now. I do have a few people requesting color. When working with color the fumes are pretty strong. I wore a mask during my last color treatment, but nearly passed out for the lack of air flow. I do plan on cutting back on the color until after the baby is born. Any other suggestion on what to do to keep my growing baby safe while I am around these products?

I also am pregnant due next month also i am a hairstylist. My dr told me that since i have been previously exposed to the chemical it shouldnt bother me. If it starts making you sick then you need to talk to your dr but you should be ok. Also make sured that you use extra protection when coloring or perming (extra gloves etc). Hope this advice helps it helped me.
