CAN I COLOR
WHILE PREGNANT?

Carrying or caring for a little one is a wonderful experience, but it can also be exhausting and, at times, emotionally challenging. A little mini makeover in the form of a new hair color or even a simple touch-up can boost your spirits and amp up your self-esteem both during and after pregnancy. But is it safe? The KolorSquad has collected your most asked Hair Color & Pregnancy questions and is here with all the answers.

Is it safe to color while pregnant?

Your safety is an essential part of our hair colorant safety assessment. Just be sure to follow the instructions in the box and conduct an allergy test 48 hours before coloring. Of course, we always suggest checking with your doctor before coloring.

Is it safe to color while breastfeeding?

Hair dyes are assessed to be safe for intended use as confirmed by authorities. If you have any concern to your specific pregnancy or health situation, please contact your doctor. Also, be sure to do an allergy test and color in a well-ventilated room away from your young one. 

Do I need to do anything differently if coloring while pregnant?

Keep in mind that pregnancy can change your hair’s texture, so we suggest conducting a strand test before coloring. Also be sure to do an allergy test, wear gloves throughout the entire coloring process, and color in a well-ventilated area. 

Bonus Tip:

Want a mini makeover without full on coloring? Try highlighting instead of a full on color. Highlighting kits come with a bonnet that will help you get a nice touch of color while avoiding direct contact with the skin.
