*Color Your Hair Safely. This post includes my affiliate links.
We all know that when you are pregnant, you should not color your hair, or so they say. I remember being pregnant with my first and my hair was so wacky and I wanted it colored (well, highlighted) and I knew I shouldn’t. I did get a few highlights but was sure it was not too many or too close to my scalp.
Color Your Hair Safely
What is a pregnant or new mama to do? Gray Away is something you CAN use while pregnant/breastfeeding because Gray Away is safe and made of mineral-derived pigments, similar to wearing eyeshadow or blush! So no feeling guilty for looking good 🙂
Why Gray Away?
Ø Gray roots start to show only 2 weeks after hair coloring, Gray Away is an easy and convenient way to spray away gray roots instantly (or to cover up regrowth of darker hair).
Ø It extends the life of hair color saving both time and money.
Ø Gray Away does not contain dyes, it contains mineral derived pigments and it is safe for everyone to use, even pregnant women!
Gray Away is a great value ($12.99 for 1.5 oz.) and is available in drugstores nationwide and online.
About Gray Away
It’s hard enough to make it to the salon every six weeks, let alone every two weeks when your gray roots start to show up again. Whether you have limited time or a limited budget we want to introduce you to the perfect root touch-up solution – Gray Away by EVERPRO Beauty. We all have our little beauty secrets, and Gray Away should be in every woman’s beauty arsenal.
Did you know…
70 – 80% of women over 40 color their gray hair, but that 75% of women are not using a temporary root touch-up between colorings because they are not satisfied with what is on the market? We see that as an opportunity to share our favorite solution to a problem that affects more than 60 million women and men.

I have been pregnant 6 times and have 6 sons. I have used root touch up kits and just did the color on my part as that where most people notice the grey. Most of my grey seems to be on top, toward the back. My other beauty tips are to drink plenty of water as its good for you, the baby and its good for your skin. Always get plenty of sleep, as its good for you and the baby and you are less like to have dark, baggy and puffy eyes. If possible, have your honey, give you shoulder/back rubs especially if you are feeling anxious. Lastly, use the best lotion you can to use on your tummy to keep the stretch marks to a minimal. If you tend to get extra large in your breasts, consider lotion on them too. (Check with your doctor about using lotion on your breasts if you plan to breast feed as I had my children over time. Sometimes things that were okay for my first pregnancy wasn’t by my 5th and vice versa).

When I was pregnant 28 years ago and frequently waking up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, plus waking up early to catch a ferry into work, my tired eyes would reflect my lack of sleep. Lining my lower lashes with a vivid color helped to brighten them. Back in the ’80s it was the bright blue. Now using a white pencil easily does the trick.
