Yes: It is safe for the pregnancy as long as you have it done in a well ventilated area. But using chemical products in pregnancy can damage your hair more than if not pregnant. Having said that, many women have used these products safely without any significant hair damage. The baby will be happy you look so good momma, .

Please avoid: I would advise that you refrain from these strong chemical treatments both because of the topical damage and absorption ANS well as inhalation.
