If you are pregnant is it safe to dye your hair? Also what are the risks if you are sick with the common cold during pregnancy?

In brief: PREGNANCY

It is safe to dye your hair during pregnancy.
But if you get sick the first trimester, anything can happen with your viral infection, it may or maynot affect your pregnancy.

In brief: Yes

1) yes it is safe to use hair dye.
Try organic hair dyes though. The systemic absorption of bleach/ chemicals in hair dye is negligible 2). Common cold --- first trimester--- consult your ob/ gyn. Subsequent trimesters, usually, Robitussin (guaifenesin) (otc) is a reasonable option for symptom relief.
