Are 11-week Pregnant Women Allowed To Dye Their Hair?
Morning, I want to ask, I am 11 weeks pregnant, can I dye my hair?
Hello Thata Azryna,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Some articles have mentioned that coloring hair during pregnancy with attention to several things. And it is highly recommended to do hair coloring should be done in the second trimester or after the 12th week. As for the few that need to be considered are as follows:
There are no disorders of pregnancy
Hair dye does not contain chemicals such as ammonia
There is no history of allergies to the ingredients contained in hair dyes
Natural coloring agent. Currently, there are enough hair dyes made from natural ingredients
Hair coloring products are safe and registered with BPOM
Performed by people who are trained to ensure that during washing there is no residual material left on the scalp or hair.
One of the natural hair dyes that are well known is the type of henna. However it is mentioned that the black one is not recommended because it is feared to contain a mixture of chemicals. To make sure you can show the products that you might use to your obstetrician and make sure there are contraindications to their use.
So that I can convey, hopefully useful.
Greetings, Dr. Tiwie
