Mam: Pregnant 11 weeks (Baby 9 weeks)
Hormones are making your hair, fingernails and toenails grow faster.
Hormones are making your hair, fingernails and toenails grow faster. Oily skin and acne may also occur, so adjust your beauty routine accordingly! You can continue to colour your hair – provided it’s done safely. Permanent hair dyes are NOT recommended, especially during the first trimester. Highlights are ok as the colour does not touch the scalp. Semi-permanent dyes are less toxic. Best of all… go red! Use henna – a natural, nontoxic alternative, for a safe and stunning look throughout pregnancy!
The ovary manufactures hormones from conception to week 10; now the placenta is beginning to take over hormone production, mainly progesterone, which will increase until birth.
