Q: I’ve found out that I am pregnant – can I still have bonded hair extensions?

A: Yes, pregnant women can still have pre-bonded hair extensions providing that they are applied and removed by a professional hair extensionist using a reputable brand’s hair extensions and removal solutions. During the application and removal of pre-bonded extensions the bond and removal solution do not come in to direct contact with the client’s skin and is generally applied around 1cm away from the scalp. Therefore systemic absorption via this route of the chemical components would not occur. Avoid using any type of hair extensions that are directly bonded or glued on to the scalp.
