A Guide to Hair Care during Pregnancy from Spoilme Hair Salon in Inverurie, Aberdeen

During pregnancy your hormones fluctuate wildly causing changes to your body, your waistline and strangely enough even your hair!

These hormones can play havoc with your locks making them dry, greasy and even turning your naturally straight hair curly!

This is why our team of hairdressers in Aberdeen have put together this guide to help you care for your hair during pregnancy and after the birth of your baby.

Please consult your GP if you have any health issues or concerns during or after pregnancy.

Colouring your hair while pregnant

The NHS now say that most research into colouring your hair whilst pregnant and breastfeeding generally shows that it is safe, as the level of chemicals coming into contact with your scalp is low. However it may be advisable to wait until after the first trimester to colour your hair.

To reduce the risk of overuse of chemicals you could have a few highlights or lowlights, or semi-permanent dye during pregnancy, rather than a full head of colour as these treatments are less likely to contact your scalp and create fewer fumes.

Pregnancy Hair Troubles

After the birth of your baby some women experience hair loss, this is usually minimal and should not cause concern, this is a result of oestrogen levels returning to normal. Please talk to your GP if you are concerned or come and talk to your stylist at Spoilme Hair Salon to see if we can make you feel and look gorgeous again with a different style.
