Has anyone gotten a Brazilian blowout or keratin treatment while pregnant? I know my OB told me hair color is fine but I’m DESPERATE for a keratin treatment this summer (super frizzy hair) but I’m also nervous it’s really bad for me and baby.

Sorry to jump in with a related question.. has anyone also done either a lash tint or spray tan? I haven’t done either while pregnant but curious to know if anyone has safely done either while expecting?

Sigh, I was told no by my hair stylist on Brazilians. I've done highlights all throughout pregnancy with no concerns by me or my stylist, but Brazilians are a no go, sadly! (Even worse, still a no go while breastfeeding)

Echoing D1 above. I looked into it and it just didn’t seem worth it. My hair stylist didn’t recommend it either. Chemicals are pretty harsh. I consider myself pretty lax too, I have no problem eating raw fish or deli meat.

Probably best to hold off even though that’s likely not what you want to hear.
