My roots are shocking, and as my mother keeps reminding me, I mustn't let myself go just because I am pregnant! I am naturally dark blonde/mousey, and I normally dye my hair myself with a Loreal Recital or whatever.
Now that I'm pregnant, and particularly in the first trimester, I am reluctant to do so. Can anyone give me any advice or a recommendation for somewhere that might be able to lift my roots with some vegetable based colour?

what about Aveda.

sarahmc, I would advise using powder bleach and peroxide to lift roots rather than a colour which may contain things like phenylene diamines and resorcinol, which although very unlikely to cause a problem , are perhaps best avoided during pregnancy. I would also advise getting the root touch up done professionally. If you do it yourself you run the risk of getting the mixture on the scalp which may be a little more sensitive than usual during pregnancy

Gosh, in my day no one gave a stuff about these things...heaven knows what terrible things I've done to my children. However they are past thirty and seem still to have two arms, two legs, and be specially bright and rather successful so I wouldnt get TOO hung up about such matters. Stay pretty however, it's often one's prettiest time.

Thank you, I will take professional advice, and I usually use Aveda shampoo and conditioner so I may try there- they've got a salon I think in Covent Garden just by Oasis SPorts Centre.

Yes they do and it's lovely - it would be a nice treat for you when you're pregnant too, it smells fantastic in there and they're very into pampering you!

That's just what I need. I am in bed at 2.30 in the afternoon I am so exhausted and nauseous!
