Is there a problem with dying hair while breast feeding?

I am still breast feeding but I really want to dye my hair.

It seems it is okay to dye your hair while breastfeeding as long as you use a dye that is non toxic, it won't harm the baby.

Dying hair does not effect the milk for breast feeding because the chemicals are not strong enough to enter the skin on top of the head. It is still safe to dye hair and will not effect the baby.

Always remember that whatever you put into or on your body, your baby is receiving the same. I would wait until the child is out of the breastfeeding stage before trying any chemical treatments.

Some of the dyes can penetrate into the bloodstream and expressed with breast milk. Hair may also be a bit fragile while breastfeeding and dying may lead to hair breakage.
