Highlighting is the best way of giving your personal color scheme a bit of a lift. Because the chemicals don’t go onto the roots of your hair, nothing is absorbed into the bloodstream and therefore, there is minimal chance of your baby coming to any harm. Also, the fumes are enclosed in the foil that is wrapped around the processing hair.
Before you get too precious about the word â€˜chemicals’, remember that some natural products can also be toxic. Consider the case of aromatherapy and how some essential oils, such as rosemary, should not be used in pregnancy.
Basically, if you follow the simple rule of checking with your pharmacist or physician before using anything about which you have doubts, you should have no reason to be concerned. There are a gazillion things to avoid when you’re carrying a little bundle in your belly, from drinking tap water to enjoying a spell in a Jacuzzi. Erring on the side of caution is always best during pregnancy, and also, asking around about other people’s experiences is wise.
One important consideration is to avoid anything even remotely risky during the first trimester when your baby’s development is at its most crucial stage.
As for highlighting your hair, go ahead and check with your doctor â€¦ a quick call may be all that’s required and then you can take off to the hairdressing salon and make that makeover happen.
