Can You Color Your Hair? Know what to use in pregnancy

One of the most common doubts in pregnancy and also a myth that persists among pregnant women and pregnant women, can or cannot dye your hair? Just use special tinctures for pregnant women, correct products and in the correct way and with the help and / or permission of your obstetrician.

Why can’t pregnant dye her hair?

But why couldn’t you paint before and now you can? Before, all tinctures were made from ammonia, which is harmful to pregnancy and the baby. They are strong chemicals that can fall into the mother’s bloodstream and can harm the baby, as it can cross the placenta barrier.

From the 3rd month ( 12 weeks ) the doctor can allow the use of paints without ammonia and without hydrogen peroxide, then the pregnant woman can dye her hair, but in strands away from the hair root. In pregnancy, women have much more beautiful hair and nails, and then they want to dye their hair even more to complement this beauty, but be aware of that. Below the word of a dermatologist on the subject.

How to Replace Hair Dye in Pregnancy

If you have a darker root and paint with lighter colors, the option to not get the huge root is to darken all the hair to balance the look . It is also recommended for future mothers to leave the root touch-up until after delivery.

The wires can withstand the chemical and take nothing into the bloodstream, but the root does. So it is better to avoid using the dye at the root even if you are well into your pregnancy weeks . Another cool trick is the oil bath, a darker tincture that can be mixed with cream and thus leaves it weaker than pure paint. Lights, these are also allowed from the 12th week.

What Can I Use in Pregnancy?

There are some brands of dye for pregnant women on the market such as Lorea´l, Bigen and many based on henna. You have to pay attention when buying and make sure with the usual hairdresser for a brand that does not even contain these products that can be harmful to the baby.

Remember that pregnancy is a relatively short period of our lives, I think you can think of making amazing chemicals after that period, leave that different color you would like to test later and never do any coloring or other chemistry before consulting your obstetrician . Nothing progressive in the hair, huh?

Taking advantage of the space talking about care, I want to tell a novelty to our pregnant readers. In partnership with the Famivita company, we developed some products aimed at the health and fertility of couples and pregnant women, an extra little help for pleasure during this period. The lubricating gel FamiGel is the only fertility-friendly lubricating gel approved by Anvisa and produced in Brazil, which plays the role of cervical mucus in a healthy way because it is water-based, which helps to maintain the vaginal pH keeping it free from infections and providing increased pleasure. You can purchase it here in our online store.

Bjo and lots of health!

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.

Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
