As we mentioned in part 1 of our pregnancy hair care series, your hair can go through some serious changes while expecting a little one. Read on to learn about playing it safe when it comes to your locks.
What is safe? What isn’t?
Think twice about getting your hair colored, chemically straightened, keratin and smoothing treatments, or permed during your pregnancy. Experts suggest skipping any chemical processes, especially during the first trimester. Because of this, most stylists recommend that clients seek out their OB-GYN's advice before heading to the salon for any of these treatments.
Some companies offer natural, vegetable-based dyes that can be used as a substitute to synthetic chemicals, but they can be tough to find. Check with your stylist to see if this is an option.
All moms-to-be deserve some serious pampering. Head to your stylist's chair for a new cut, blowout or even extensions! While you're there, get tips from your stylist on pregnancy and postpartum hair care.
And don't stop there! Try a relaxing massage, pedicure, and facial. Feeling relaxed and good about yourself will help you glow on the outside. New mama Beyonce looks better than ever with pretty pony and glowing skin. You can bet she didn't miss a spa treatment during those long 9 months.

IMPORTANT: Experts strongly recommend checking with your OB/GYN before undergoing any chemical processes during your pregnancy.

It is always better to be safe than sorry... even if it means waiting on that root touch-up!
