Can I colour my hair when pregnant or breastfeeding?

The NHS say that most research into dyeing your hair during pregnancy and breastfeeding generally shows that it is safe to colour your hair when pregnant. If you are thinking about colouring your hair while pregnant, consider waiting until after the 13th week of pregnancy. You could consider highlights or lowlights, or semi-permanent hair dyes rather than a full head of colour, as these treatments have less contact with your scalp and create fewer chemicals.
