I am 12 weeks pregnant. Can I use shampoo and conditioner that contains dimethyl-dimethyl (DMDM), hydantoin? I have read that they are harmful during pregnancy

I am 12 weeks pregnant. Can I use shampoo and conditioner that contains dimethyl-dimethyl (DMDM), hydantoin? I have read that they are harmful during pregnancy

At your stage of pregnancy the fetus is still forming all the structures so probably NOT a good idea for exposure but you must realize that very little if any will be absorbed from the brief exposure of a hair shampoo. I advise patients to avoid ANY chemical exposure. ...Read more

Cannot be 100% sure. ...Read more
