Whether it is possible to dye hair during pregnancy and feeding by a breast?

of Future mothers, got used to watch the appearance, the question very much concerns whether it is possible to dye hair during pregnancy and during feeding by a breast.

Leading “normal“ life before pregnancy, we often experiment with a hair color - we try to find identity or just we want to change the style. It is no secret, that having turned from the blonde into the brunette, we change not only the appearance, but also character, and our relations with people around change. But even if we do not seek to surprise surrounding with continuous change of image, the simple desire always to look well-groomed demands from us regular coloring of hair. whether

needs So to refuse this procedure during pregnancy and during feeding by a breast for the sake of the health and the kid? Or it is possible to visit the hairdresser still?

we will tell

At once that there is no unambiguous opinion. There is a set of scientific data which speak well for flat refusal of coloring. But not less popular belief that coloring cannot do any harm to either future mother, or the child.

So, let`s understand.

Supporters of a categorical ban of coloring refer to the fact that the chemicals which are contained in hair-dyes can cause an allergy not only in the kid, but also in the most feeding woman even if earlier it used paint without problems. Except possible allergic reactions you should not forget also that resistant paints contain a set of toxic substances which nestle close in an organism during coloring. That is, even if not to speak about pregnancy, it is impossible to claim that resistant dyes are safe for a female organism.

For the first time the question of safety of hair-dyes was brought up by doctors and toxicologists at the end of the last century. Then data of researches on negative impact of the main components of the painting compositions on a human body were published. Dispute between oncologists, toxicologists and producers of paints does not cease and so far.

Long-term experience of the branches using the same input products (dyeing of fur and skin, production of synthetic dyes, cinema - and photographic materials, etc.) showed that practically all ingredients are, on the existing representations, the substances potentially hazardous to health of the person.

of Research of toxicity and carcinogenicity of these connections within nearly two decades were carried out at many universities and the national cancer centers of the USA and Europe. Scientists watched also laboratory animals, and the people using resistant hair-dyes. Results of these researches really shook scientists.

So, according to University of South California, only the cigarette smoke caused big reaction, than permanent hair-dyes. Researches demonstrate that at women who use a resistant hair-dye at least once a month the probability of development of cancer increases three times. Perhaps, there is a grain of truth in a sad legend that Jacqueline Kennedy - Onassis, constantly applying a black hair-dye, provoked at itself a blood cancer - a leukosis.

Not smaller danger is concealed in itself by steam inhalation of ammonia and other flying ingredients of dyes. Through light any chemically active agents instantly get to blood, and from there get into breast milk.

Yes, these data are not unambiguous. A great number of women continue to paint hair during pregnancy and feeding by a breast without any serious consequences. But the purpose of any of us - to try to exclude completely any influences which can negatively affect on health and development of the child.

What to do if coloring became for you habitual procedure? Whether it is necessary to cease to watch himself? Or it is still possible to remain well-groomed and attractive?

Actually nobody obliges us all pregnancy to go with the slovenly grown roots. It is possible to visit the hairdresser in the usual mode, however it makes sense to change a hair-dye.

If you are ready to be limited to the minimum changes in the appearance, there are tinting shampoos and balms which do not contain active toxic agents.

the Colouring by henna which was considered always safe according to the last researches is connected by

with a considerable genotoksichnosityyu. Therefore many scientists seriously began to doubt in expediency of its application not only for coloring of hair, but also for a permanent make-up. At least, use of household paints on the basis of henna during pregnancy should be excluded.

In some sense independently is costed by procedure of coloring of hair silk. The silk Colouring which began to become fashionable promptly in Moscow several years ago in the USA and Europe is known more than 20 years. Procedure is made on the basis of the American bezammiachny CHI Ionic paint.

As effect of paint is based by

, first of all, on physical, but not on chemical mechanisms, it does not contain active toxic agents. Even in the United States, the country with the most tough standards on health protection, this paint is allowed for coloring during pregnancy and in the period of a lactation.

it is of

B than uniqueness of this procedure, and what interest to us during pregnancy and a lactation? First of all, and, probably, this most important - by means of silk coloring, as well as at traditional ammoniac coloring, it is possible to achieve any color. That is, if your natural color darkly - fair-haired, and you found yourself in an image of the distinguished blonde - at you need of all 9 months will not go with the terrifying grown roots. You will be a blonde of that shade which is necessary for you.

the Silk Colouring Procedure essentially differs in

from ammoniac coloring. Also differs not only the fact that harmful chemical compounds do not get into blood. It also special approach to the hair. Due to lack of ammonia and use of silk as a dye basis natural healthy hair are not injured and if the part of a hair was earlier injured or weakened, there is an intensive restoration of its structure.


Moreover, during “Silk coloring“ does not injure a bulb of a hair and a zone of its growth. At the expense of it the hair begins to grow stronger and healthy.

during pregnancy it is especially important

. The increased need of an organism for calcium already leads to weakening of hair. Thus, it is procedure which deserves special attention not only due to lack of harmful effects on an organism, but also thanks to the fact that it provides significant improvement of a condition of hair and normalization of metabolic processes in head skin. In fact, it is full, though more expensive, alternative to traditional ammoniac coloring which is applicable both during pregnancy, and after the child`s birth.
