HAIR COLORING DURING PREGNANCY OR LACTATING?

The use of hair dye during pregnancy is a personal choice that should be made with careful consideration and consultation with a healthcare provider. While some studies suggest that the chemicals in hair dye are unlikely to cause harm to the developing fetus, it is still recommended to take precautions.

Pregnant women may choose to avoid hair dye during the first trimester, as this is a critical period of fetal development.

If hair dye is used, it is advisable to follow safety measures such as working in a well-ventilated area, minimizing skin contact, wearing gloves.

  1. Considering using color techniques off scalp:

like foiling or palette tintlites, highlights, lowlites or combing

2.applying color to localized or concentrate areas instead of whole roots.

3. spacing the touch ups in between coloring

4. use a demi permanent,ammonia & fragrance free hair color

5.Choosing alternative options like plant-based dyes

such as henna or vegetable-based dyes, can provide a safer alternative for those concerned about chemical exposure.

However, henna in a patient with G6PD deficiency can cause serious medical complications, including hyperbilirubinemia and hemolytic anemia,The active integrant of henna, lawsone (2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinone), has been linked to henna-induced hemolytic anemia (HIHA).

It may, however, be limited to people with weakened antioxidant defenses such as glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency.

Avoid henna if you have G6PD deficiency or have been advised to avoid Fava beans, are extremely anemic, or have citrus allergies.

Consult a physician if you have any concerns or are pregnant and would like to use henna and get tested for (G6PD)

Ultimately, it is essential for pregnant women to discuss their concerns and individual circumstances with their healthcare provider, who can offer personalized advice and help make an informed decision regarding the use of hair dye during pregnancy.
