Hair coloring: There seems to be differing opinions regarding use of hair dye while pregnant. Some doctors indicate that it's likely safe (especially after 1st trimester). Other doctors recommend no unnecessary contact w chemicals during pregnancy. I would be concerned w bleaching before hand & products w ammonia, peroxides & other chemical ingredients. Wish I could find a good study to refer you to.
