    Hair rebond or treatment in pregnancy

    Why is hair straightening or hair treatment prohibited during pregnancy?

    Dear jellyace,

    Hair straightening with straightening irons at home is fine in pregnancy. However, any hair treatment which involves chemicals could have an effect on the unborn baby and so is not recommended in pregnancy. For example, studies have shown that some chemical hair dyes unfortunately increase the risk of miscarriage.

    It is one of those areas where more detailed research is needed about how much of the chemical dye would need to be absorbed through the scalp in order for it to adversely affect a pregnancy. However, it is best to be cautious and avoid chemical hair treatments because there is not research showing they are safe to use.

    I hope this clarifies things.
