During this special time in a woman’s life, she wants to look as beautiful as she feels. It is often asked whether hair colour is safe for pregnant clients. Some hair dyes with safer ingredients may be safe to use during pregnancy because so little dye is absorbed through the skin.

Consider waiting through the first trimester to receive hair colour services.
Organic Colour Systems contains more natural, organic, safer ingredients that all other permanent hair colours.

Consider the products ingredients and consult their physician.
By providing the doctor with a list of ingredients in the hair colour or other chemicals to be used, they will be able to give well-informed recommendations. Please see a full list of ingredients found in our colour to bring to your physician.

Hair Dye Allergy Test
Sometimes during pregnancy a women might find herself sensitive to products that wouldn’t ordinarily effect her. A Hair Dye Allergy Test/Skin Sensitivity Patch Test must be performed prior to any colour services.

During pregnancy, it is critical to select a colour line that is ammonia-free and bleach-free like Organic Colour Systems. No need to breath chemical fumes from hair colour or lighteners that contain ammonia as this could be harmful to the developing baby and should be avoided. We also recommends choosing a highlight or lowlight procedure instead of an all-over application. These procedures keep the colour inside of the foils, protecting the scalp from coming in contact with the colour. This mimnimises the colour being absorbed into the skin.
