So my OBGYN told me it was safe to dye my hair while pregnant….but I do not feel comfortable with this. I would love to hear what other mama’s think?
I refused to dye my hair, use nail polish, or use any other chemical during my last pregnancy (11 years ago). I was kind of freaky what I would use & put on my body.This being said, I have mellowed out significantly since then & I have used black “natural hair dye” that I purchase from the health food store (made in the UK) for the past 10 years. It is called tints of nature (& it is ammonia, rosorinol, and paraben free…but it does contain low amounts of PPD (p-phenylenediame).
I am naturally dirty blond (& from my regrowth over the past 4 weeks I am now totally streaked with grey) but aside from my roots I have jet black hair. I tried to use a black henna from lush on Tuesday but it did absolutely nothing….
I do not want to use any dye (even ‘natural’) until after the 1st trimester (3 more weeks to go)…but I do not think I can handle wearing a toque (beanie) until then. And even then...i do not feel 100% comfortable using a product with PPDs.
I am having a total hormonal 'I feel old and repulsive funk!'
Aside from feeling bloated & fat, I feel OLD (with grey roots that contrast deeply with my black hair).
Does anyone know of any effective black henna dyes?
