Recommendation in Denmark: Pregnant women must avoid chemical hair colors.
A less known question in France, very few medias actually highlight the potential danger but in northern Europe. In Denmark for instance, women are given a list of three useful advices to reduce the potential dangers of chemical exposure during pregnancy these are:
- Don’t dye your hair during pregnancy.
- Reduce cosmetic products during pregnancy.
- Avoid contact with paint and other aerosol spray products.
This advice is to be taken seriously, adding to the already existing list of things to avoid during pregnancy :
- Avoid alchol and tobacco use during pregnancy.
- Avoid using wifi and cell phones during pregnancy.
- Avoid using cannabis during pregnancy.
