I think it is safe but you have to be careful because apparently when your pregnant your hair can take to the bleach differently and end up a bit orange.

So basically just make sure you have a good toner.

After the first trimester its safe to dye your hair, I made sure to ask the doc when I was pregnant cause I had such bad roots!!!

I was told the opposite of all of y'all. I was told that highlighting puts less chemicals on your head than coloring because you are only doing sections and not the whole head. Coloring actually touches your scalp when applied.

I was also told highlighting is safer but dyeing is fine= I would avoid bleach because pregnancy changes your hair and the bleach may not have the desired effect.
