Keeping Our Sanity During Baby's First Year

The Price of Vanity

Obviously this is Jennifer Aniston, not me, but I love her highlights!

The day after I found out I was pregnant, I went in for color and highlights. So, am I already a bad mom? I told my hairdresser that I was PG and he assured me that he has tons of pregnant clients and has never stopped coloring anyone’s hair. I asked my friends and they told me not to worry about it. But then I went on the forums (bad idea) and read a few posts slamming women who color their hair while pregnant.

So, again, I turned to the experts at BabyCenter who said (yay!) that coloring your hair while pregnant is perfectly fine! There is no evidence that hair dye has ever caused a change in human pregnancy. What a relief. I don’t think I could have gone 9 months with gray roots (you’d be surprised how much I have) but I also hate to think I would harm my child just for my own vanity. Glad I don’t have to choose now!

Update: My doctor told me in my first visit that coloring my hair is fine!
