Depends on the dye: Check the box. Could also do a test with small punt of hair on back of head.

Ask your OB doc: I tell my pts to wait until they are out of the 1st trimester for any hair dyes that would be 13 weeks.

Probably safe: It is likely to be safe to use natural dyes, but its also possible to have an allergic reaction, so use cautiously.
