    I have long thin hair and have permed it for years.
    and recently i wanna change a new style...while i'm pregant...
    i wanna color it, but but don't want to do that at all while pregnant because I can't imagine it would be very good for baby. ie chemicals etc.

    I know I'm being extra-cautious, but I wouldn't put any chemical treatments (colouring, straightening, etc.) on my hair if I were pregnant. It's just not worth it. You can always use flat/curling irons or hair accessories for a style change.

    I have consulted my doctor and she also suggested not coloring hair when pregnant...and said the chemicals in coloring products can hurt my baby.
    i don't do anything that hurts my baby...
    then i heard that human hair wigs can help people to get the hairstyles they want, including the hair color, length, straight or curl...
    aren't they?

    Get something high and tight, or else go whole hog and get a Sinead OConnor type 'do. After that, hair care would be No Muss, No Fuss. Great for even after the delivery, as you'll probably have more things to worry about ;)


    I just loved the part of the post cut hair wash, LOL... Just what exactly are they washing, there ain't nothing left?

    Can't really do anything while you are prego. You probably can just tie it into pony tail or clip it up.

    I don't no were your doctor get her information, but there isn't ANY prove that coloring or perm your hair would hurt your baby. But there is prove that some women lose some hair after gave birth because of the hormones. But it turns to normal if your homones-level become normal again. If you don't wanna take any risks, don't do anything and why do you wanna wig? It's almost summer! Are you sick or getting bald? A wig is waste of money, especially your expecting.

    if you've been perming for years just let it grow itself out again. if you haven't done a perm in awhile and have always had long hair going short will be very traumatic for you after the initial week wears off. you'll miss it. I always change my hair style. I go long and then mid length and then short. There are options out there. With the baby coming you'll probably want a no fuss hair do so if you do change the style go mid length so that by the time the baby is due your hair is longer and you can tie it up in a pony tail again. The chemicals from hair coloring dont hurt the baby. While it's getting done you may want to put a mask on but after the fact it wont do any harm. In the beginning when hair coloring was becoming very popular i can see it being harmful but nowadays it isn't.
