Grey Coverage?

Anyone know how I can cover my grey hair while pregnant?

Sorry, I'm not sure. I think as long as you don't go right to your scalp you can color your hair safely (and in a well ventilated area). When I was pg with DS I still had my hair colored but they always kept the color away from my scalp.

I heard it's safe to color your hair as well?

You can do highlights or low lights anytime during pregnancy as the color never touches your scalp. After the first trimester, you're free to color your hair as you choose! Like others said, just make sure you're in a well ventilated area!

Or just let it go grey? I went that route a couple of years ago. It works better if it's light-colored hair (so it's really not terribly noticeable even though a huge percentage of my hair is grey) and it works better on shorter hair.

I colored my hair when I was pregnant with my twins. I used the root touch up only, the kind you only have to leave on for 10 min. My dr didn't seem concerned. It seems like a lot of things I was to avoid during my first preg are now ok, and a lot of things that were ok I am now supposed to avoid. So I figure... common sense, just be careful, and I'm not too worried.
