    I did a rebonding when i was a few weeks preggie ( didnt know that I'm preggie that time).

    Ds is doing fine now. But to play safe, its best not to go for any rebonding loh. Cos the chemicals used are very strong..

    If you really need to straighten your hair why don't try to use straightener styler? Though sometimes makes your hair a bit dry after you do it several times, but you can apply fresh aloe vera for your hair treatment. It's natural. I think it's quite safe for your preggie.

    Yes, the chemicals are not only strong in terms of possibly travelling to the baby, just the MTB breathing in the smell of the chemicals is already harmful enough.. So like what the rest advised, beauty can wait for now :001_302:

    not only the chemicals might harm the baby, after you give birth you will drop hair when your baby is around 4 months. So if you do rebonding or treatment, you might aggravate your scalp and cause ur hair loss to be worse

    I totally agree with pinkdiamond.
    If that happens after ur hurt ur scalp with the extensive use of chemical (strong ones) during rebonding or chemical hair works, then i think it is not worth it....

    How about using those shampoo that help to prevent hair loss? I have thinning hair issue and have been using "Ba Wang" for some time even before getting pregnant. The box didn't say if I should stop if I am pregnant. This brand uses Chinese herbs but not sure if it would harm the baby. Anyone can help?

    Re: Hair Shampoo safe for use?

    Hi brenda16,
    I also uses hair shampoo that helps with my oily scalp, Lucido. I am not sure if it will harm my baby gal, but i am still using. I like it coz I don't feel that "not so clean" feeling after washing my hair daily. Other brands of shampoo always makes me feel like a layer of 'build up' on my scalp after i washed my hair with them...

    Any advice any one?

    Re: Hair Shampoo safe for use?

    Yeah, just tolerate for a couple of more months. I have naturally wavy hair, and have been rebonding my hair for years. But when we discovered that I'm pregnant, before I can say anything, my hair stylist is already opposed to the idea of me chemically treating my hair be it dyeing or rebonding.

    his only reccomendations are just triming (we decided that we should keep my hair long in order to prevent it from curling up too much) and scalp treatment, to reduce the amount of hair loss after giving birth. The scalp treatment is mainly usage of pressurized water to unblock the pores in my scalp. He did it for his own wife during her pregnancy, and say that it really help to reduce her hair loss, and hair wasn't as oily during confinement.

    In fact recently, I went back and ask about the dry shampoo which could be used during confinement period (my hair gets greasy when its not washed) , they also reccomend me not to use it, as the powder would clog up the pores in my scalp.
