Unfortunately the jury’s still out on this one. The good news is there’s no proof that hair relaxers are dangerous to your pregnancy. Bad news is there’s also no evidence to say for sure that it’s completely safe, either. It’s no secret that hair relaxers contain harsh chemicals that can be absorbed through the skin, so for your sake and baby’s, it’s best to err on the side of caution and let your hair go au natural until the end of your pregnancy.
