Breastfeeding and getting highlights???

I know this might sound like an odd question, but, I have had several people give me contradictory advice.
I was wondering if one can get highlights/ hair done while they are breastfeeding? Some people have said there is no problem with that and others have told me that it is best to avoid it.
I was just wondering what others on the board recommend?

TIA,
Alli

There is no evidence that hair care products (dyes, permanents, or hair relaxers) used by a nursing mom have any effect on her breastfeeding baby.
