Pregnant after a Loss

Keratin treatment worry

I had a keratin treatment today. I called my OB's office about it and they said it was ok in the 2nd trimester and if it had no formeldhyde. I had my hair stylist check and it wasn't listed. She also checked with a fellow stylist to see if it was ok for pregnant women and she said it was fine. So, why am I sitting here freaking out that I did it? I can only blame PGAL brain, or the fact that I'm a worrywart.

Re: Keratin treatment worry

  • Don't freak out.   Says a woman who breathes formaldehyde on a daily basis!

    Even though it's not a listed "product,"   the one time I had it done I did smell formaldehyde once they removed the saran wrap off my head!  I was not happy-  but at least the salon was well ventilated.

    I know plenty of moms who worked in anatomy labs/science labs all throughout their  pregnancies and their kids are perfect!

  • Thanks babystoli.  I didn't have my head saran wrapped. I did the keratin express, so she just brushed on the keratin and then straightened my hair.  I didn't notice an overwhelming smell while she was doing it.  Do you work in a lab?

  • I don't have experience with this, but I am positive your OB would have told you if it was a problem at all.  That's his or her job.  Try not to worry.  Just enjoy the straight, shiny hair.  LO is just fine.
