I have a 4 1/2 month old that I EBF..(Yay, so happy I made it this long)..I am wanting to get my hair highlighted and was wondering if it was safe to do so while breastfeeding?

DEfinately! You can color your hair anytime through pregnancy, brreastfeeding ETC. There used to be a product that was dangerous during pregnancy and that caused cancer about 20 years ago. That product was pulled from the shelves and revamped. The main ingredients in colors are ammonia, peroxide and vegetabel dye, past that, it is up to the company to add extras like conditioners, or herbs. In bleach (which is what is used in highlighting) there is only peroxide and powdered bleach, occasionally a company will add a scent or conditioners, but normally they don't. These products are all safe anytime. Even perms are ok!

Yeah! I dye my hair and just make sure my baby is asleep and not around me when I'm doing it so he doesn't inhale any of the yucky fumes.

I colored my hair twice when i was preggo and once so far after...I think it's just a wise tale that you can't color your hair....
