Although I don’t think you need special beauty products while you are pregnant, other than belly butter, you definitely want to use only natural products. Your skin and scalp absorb everything applied to it, and this in turn will pass through the placenta to your growing baby.
Nine Naturals is 100% plant-based haircare products containing organic oils designed for those special pregnancy months and beyond.
Nine Naturals Is…
- Formulated for Health & Safety: Our formulations are 100% plant-based. We never use Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Petrochemicals, DEA, Synthetic Fragrances, or Artificial Preservatives. All of our ingredients are pre-screened for health and safety during pregnancy and while nursing.
- Optimized for Performance: Not all natural products are created equal. We designed our line focusing on high performance as well as purity. Our premium ingredients, which include moroccan argan oil, macadamia seed oil, and cupuaçu butter, nurture hair and skin to keep women radiant through pregnancy and beyond.
- Transparency & Clarity: We disclose all of our ingredients, and provide an online glossary describing each and every ingredient (and its many beauty benefits!).
- Gentle 100% Natural Fragrances: Our proprietary natural fragrances – comprised solely of pure essential oils – are gentle and soothing, designed to help ease common pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness and fatigue. We’ve also toned down the strength of the scents, to account for heightened sensitivity to smell that overwhelms many pregnant women.
- Safe for Color-Treated Hair: Since pregnancy and nursing are periods during which many women decrease or abstain from toxin-heavy color and hair-treatments, all of our hair products are pH balanced to be safe for, protect and prolong color-treated hair.

You really should avoid coloring your hair while pregnant, in fact, you really should avoid coloring your hair altogether. I used to get my hair highlighted at a natural salon, but even this contained some chemicals. Shamefully, I admit to having my hair treated while pregnant, and the stylist was careful to avoid my scalp. Nonetheless, I wish I would have not let vanity cause the potential exposure of toxic chemicals to my unborn child. I no longer color my hair, but let nature decide what shade I should wear.
