I heard that's it ok to color, but that because of hormones the perm won't take like it's supposed to.

I've heard that the reason it is not recommended to colour (especially permanant) or perm your hair while pregnant is that hormones can affect the way it works. Sometimes people will become more sensitive to the peroxides and ammonias used and for others it may not have the desired effect (be it colour or curl).

I've also heard of a few stories where people have actually lost hair, though I'm not sure how true that is.

i've been told as long as the the colorant has natural stuff in it but the idea is the fumes.. now perms to straighted have hormones in them and that is oneof the things they warn you about

I didn't do anything in the 1st trimester. But I did start coloring again in the 2nd and 3rd. I also got a perm at about 8 months (so it would be relaxed and easy to fix after the baby) they don't guarantee the perm or color will take, but I had no problems at all with either one. And Kaleb was perfectly healthy!!
