Mom-to-be Jamie Lynn Spears' newly streaked hair makes us wonder.
|Looks like Zoey 101 star Jamie Lynn Spears got her hair colored over the weekend. Some doctors say it's perfectly safe to dye your hair during pregnancy, while others feel it's an absolute no-no. What do you think? And what about that cup she's carrying--if it's java and not decaf, is that OK or no way?|
Here are the official recommendations from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists:
Coffee: "Up to 300 milligrams of caffeine a day is OK, and it's not even clear that more than that is dangerous," according to Michael Greene, a Harvard professor and spokesperson for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, in US News and World Report.
Hair Dye: Historically, physicians advised women against dying their hair while pregnant because it was thought to be potentially harmful to the fetus. However, today it is believed that hair dyes are most likely safe to use during pregnancy since very little is absorbed through the skin, according to a statement released by ACOG. Women should realize, though, that because pregnancy causes a change in hormone levels, the hair color may not come out as expected.
