Hair dye + Injections 🤔

Hi girls

I was wondering I'm currently taking injections (buserline actetate) leading up to my egg collection I'm on long protocol and I haven't taken eaten or drank anything that I shouldn't (even though I have cold and I feel like I'm dying lol ) and firstly I was wondering if I could dye my hair I'm blonde normally have a full head colour but I could get highlights so it didn't touch my scalp what do you's think? Im just so juveus of everything!!!

Also I have reed a lot of posts on here about people giving up caffeine ( tea coffee chocolate pop) I asked my nurse and she said you shouldn't give up anything just don't have more than 3 cups of tea or coffee a day I just don't know what to believe. I just want this so badly I don't want to get anything wrong or take the chance!!

Please help!!!! Xxxxxxxx

Hi CH91. I wouldn't worry too much about caffeine in tea and coffee, as a few cups won't go amiss. Regarding hair colour, I recently had a word with my own hairdresser for someone else, and she reckons that most of the professional hair colours could be harmful if left on for a while. However, she said that if you were just having something like highlights done using foil, then the roots tend not to absorb much if any of the colour, and the rest of the hair is dead anyway!! Unfortunately, people like “The Body Shop” have stopped producing their henna products because the new EU regulations stated that they had to test the dye on animals before continuing to sell it. Obviously for them that was a complete “no no”. However, “Holland & Barrett” do carry a range of safe hair colourants to use during pregnancy. They are a nationwide outfit, so I am sure you would be able to visit one fairly locally. I also spoke with the “Cosmetic and Perfumery Association (CTPA) and they assure me that hair colourants are one of the most studied consumer products on the market, and are safe for all women, pregnant or not. But if you are still concerned, why don’t you buy a chemical free semi-permanent dye such as “Clairol Nice’n’Easy”, which lasts from 6 to 8 washes. It might only tone down your roots rather than cover it completely, but better than nothing. good luck with whatever you decide - and of course with the cycle. Diane
