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,.

Try to minimize "back combing" your hair because it roughs them up and causes breakage.

Answered by:
 Benzac Benzoyl peroxide Desquam Obstetrics Obstetrics and gynecology Pregnancy Female Health Healthy pregnancy

I would avoid it


You should contact your Ob/Gyn with any issues regarding topicals during pregnancy. Many things that you think would be safe, such as benzoyl peroxide or antipersperant are actually not recommended.

Yes and no


If it is eye lash "additions" (false eye lashes). Yes it's OK. Just check the glue to make sure it's not toxic. Check with your OB/GYN doctor. If its eye drops, Latisse then no. Latisse is not safe as it can lower your blood pressure.

Prefer not!


It is really not safe to use any unnecessary chemicals when you are pregnant. Less is always better. On the other hand there are not a lot of studies that answer that question because we dont like to do studies on pregnant women!' Its always best to err on the side of caution
