Is it true that pregnant women can't have perms because it is toxic to them and the baby? What other tips about perms when you are pregnant?

I have heard that too, don't get a perm when pregnant. I don't know for sure about that.

I have straight hair and never really desired a perm. I have curled my hair before when it was longer but never had a perm. I like straight hair.

The fact is that there is SO much we don't know about pregnancy and birth. Will a perm (it does contain very, very strong fumes) affect a growing unborn baby? Maybe. Maybe not.

Here's the question to you: is it worth the unknown risk?
