    pampering preggy

    Is having my hair done, like straightening or rebonding a no no when you are pregnant? Or having a foot massage is also not allowed?

    Hi Nadinne,

    Thanks for your question.

    Having your hair straightened is totally fine in pregnancy, as is having a foot massage. Indeed, it is good to relax; this is beneficial to both you and your baby.

    However, hair rebonding is not recommended because there is not enough evidence about the safety of the chemicals used in this process and their affect on your baby. It's best to play it safe and not have this procedure carried out in pregnancy. Most women find that there hair changes in pregnancy (both in quality and quantity!) so any change your have to your hair in pregnancy may look quite different post-pregnancy.

    Warm wishes,
