Is it ok to dye my hair? Im 23 weeks pregnant.

Studies thus far indicate that it is unlikely that hair dye is a risk factor in specific cases, but has not been proven across the board so to speak. I recommend you ask your ob/gyn or family doctor their opinion and then make your own decision. All the best. ...Read more
