So I am a bottle blonde and I’ve been reading that dying your hair is harmful for Bub. I am going to need to go back to brunette as my roots are super dark.
Can anyone recommend any articles or products to use?

maybe ask your midwives or dr - maybe in the past the peroxides they used might be harmful, i think they are using less harmful chemicals now..particularly if you have foils ...but don’t take it from an internet random - like i said, double check with your health care people.

My obstetrician said that getting your hair dyed while pregnant was completely fine.

My OB said to try and only dye it 2-3 times over the pregnancy.
Another thing to consider though, is after baby is born whether it will be difficult for you to maintain the blonde. If so, maybe choose a lower maintenance hair colour in case you have to move to a bit longer between appointments

I went darker when pregnant, ONLY to avoid the regrowth because I didn't want to have to worry about colouring my hair after the baby was born. I didn't want to have to take the baby to a salon with the chemicals in the air, and I didn't leave her long because I was breastfeeding.
I had no worries about the dye being unsafe when pregnant though.

Have full head low light foils if your worried. Foils are off scalp so minimal contact, only when washing off.

When dyes contained arsenic it was not recommended. They do not contain arsenic anymore.
Looking after yourself by keeping your hair nice is worth the absolutely remote/zero risk to your baby.
