Have found little info on this in the world wide webs, but is hair gel generally safe? I just bought a product called eco-styler and it is alcohol free. The articles I've read on the web seem to suggest I should just brush my hair over the course of pregnancy instead of applying product but as some of you may know, black people need a little more than that lol!

I never heard anything about not using hair gel during pregnancy, either with or without. I've used it with all my pregnancies. I'm sure you're fine but if you're worried check your doctor.

Sounds fine to me. I think maybe hair spray is less ok because of the fumes. I don't see why hair gel would affect anything!

Good luck! I used to work with a little boy from Somalia and keeping his hair and skin nice in Canadian winters was a trick!

Yah, I wouldn't worry, it washes out, it's not like you're drinking the stuff!
