Cosmetics & Pregnancy


A couple of more funny myths that maybe
are a little bit more common to our South Florida population can I dye my
hair not me obviously but can a pregnant woman do hair dye nails all the lovely
things that women do. So very interesting here in South Florida I get this
question asked all the time and if you ask if you get a bunch of pregnant women
and you ask them that same question and you’re probably asking yourself the same
question you’re gonna say no of course not
and when I ask people why they don’t know a lot of people say let’s wait to
the end of the first trimester and the thought behind that is that it has
products like ammonia and formaldehyde that can affect theoretically go through
the skin and transfer into your peanuts you know but in reality most of
dyes nowadays are very safe have very low amounts of ammonia and formaldehyde
so it is considered safe in pregnancy it. As a general guideline do you try to at
least maybe in the first 20 weeks in the first trimester to say. To be honest I
tell my patients you are allowed to dye your hair too. And nails are ok too? Nails are good if you’re gonna be ultra
conservative you can do like a balayage where basically the dye is in the bottom
part or highlight. That’s fashion advice that I should not be giving I’m glad
you’re here. But to be honest it’s pretty safe to me to be quite honest if people
say you should wait to the first trimester because of the effect to the
fetus what’s the difference when you’re 12 weeks pregnant and 14 weeks pregnant
you’re still exposing so it’s safe dye your hair you should look pretty
with the nails it’s the same thing there’s an idea or theory
behind certain nail polishes have some type of toxic components but I want to
say the most popular ones which are like OPI and as the those are pretty safe and
are non-toxic.
