Is it safe to color hair while breastfeeding?

Ok, mamas question, do you think it’s safe to color your hair while breastfeeding? I colored my hair yesterday at home, and now I’m freaking out that my baby is going to be poisoned

I’ve never heard of that being a thing. All my friends that breastfeed dye their hair. One stays a platinum blonde so she uses harsh stuff and her baby is 2 and perfectly healthy and always breastfed.

You can dye your hair

As a stylist, I always recommend speaking with your doctor for advise. I personally have never heard of negative side effects from nursing moms coloring their hair.

It’s only when your pregnant you shouldn’t dye your hair because of all the chemicals you breathe in. Breastfeeding is fine!

My midwife and doctor both told me that dying hair while pregnant or breastfeeding is safe. Just make sure it’s done in a well ventilated area


Ur hormones may still be off and color may not stick correctly but over all its safe


You did not poison your baby, it is safe to color your hair while pregnant/breastfeeding just make sure it’s in a ventilated area. However you still have a lot of hormones running through your body and the color may not take properly

Dyed my hair each time while pregnant and breastfeeding with all 3 kids both at home and at the salon all my kids are fine!

I dyed my hair a couple times when I was pregnant. Just make sure the room is ventilated really good. And also look for dyes that don’t have a lot of the chemicals others do. I used Garnier Nutrisse Hair Color when I was pregnant.

It’s perfectly safe, just make sure you have plenty of ventilation.

Unmmm that will not happen

Lol yes it safe. I have done it several times while nursing and spoke to lactation consultants. It’s perfectly fine😊

It’s safe as long as you are in well ventilated room. I wasn’t sure either and asked my Dr. when I went to my 12 week appointment and she said it’s fine.

Yes it’s safe as long as you don’t eat it lol

I did I left my window open to let in air and didn’t smell the chemicals doctor said it was safe just to have air around

You can dye your hair but you should do a skin and hair test 48 hours before, hormone changes can affect the colour taking to your hair and can also affect how sensitive your skin becomes to products used. I only know this because I went have mine done after the birth of my daughter but was advised by the hairdresser to wait until my hormones had ‘settled’… It won’t affect your baby if you are breast feeding x
