is it safe to get hair coloured in the 2nd trimester. I read the  Babychakra article on beauty treatments that can be done. would like to know the general opinion..

Sheeba Vijesh

don't know about others, but while i was pregnant, i was afraid to even colour my nails! 😛


is it unsafe to apply nailpolish?i apply it every week, bt its smell bcms vry strong nowadays i cannot stand it

Sheeba Vijesh

no, i did not mean its unsafe, i said i was afraid.. anyways, look for nail polish free from formaldehyde and toluene to be on the safer side, and hold the hands away from you while it dries... using it once a week is absolutely safe...

No it's not unsafe.. why would you feel that way..

If you are regularly doing it...Then go ahead. You can go for a good haircut and colouring as wel. If it takes long... take some snacks and ur water bottle with you. Many will avoid waxing... as it will be lil pain full.    Enjoy this moment... Now you are resting and getting pampered.. later on... You are gonna be very busy after delivery. :D

Preeti, always be safe, since some study does indicate its highly toxic & should not be left on the sclap for long, if its only highliting the hair then its fine as it does not touch the sclap..... esp you dont want to take any risk with your baby. Hence go for natural product like Henna. Just in case you are in 2 minds and decided to go for it...make sure its a good brand colour.
