Transcription: 
People always ask about dyeing your hair and pregnancy. Currently, we recommend not to dye your hair in the first trimester of pregnancy, although highlighting your hair and dyeing it with henna or some kind of vegetable dye is fine in the first trimester. We just ask that you stay away from chemical dyeing in the first trimester. After the first trimester, you can do anything you want. As far as curling goes, curling is perfectly fine in any trimester. Hair straightening with flat irons and other topical chemicals are okay, however, the Yuko system straightening and the Brazilian straightening we actually ask that you actually wait until after the first trimester.
