Yes. They make ammonia free hair dye (although it fades a lot faster), but if you use the kind with ammonia just make sure you're in a well-ventilated room.

Yes. They say to do it in a well ventilated area.

Yes. Just do it in a ventilated room, as stated multiple times.

It doesn't matter how far along you are, you don't want to breathe those chemicals in at all. I dyed my hair when I was 35 weeks pregnant and it was fine (I used the ammonia free one though). You can just go in a bathroom and leave the door open and the fan on, you'll be fine.

Yes. I just bleached my hair Saturday night, and put the color on yesterday. The chemicals will not get into your system, just make sure you're in a well ventilated area

I just asked my hairdresser this question the other day!
bleaching in the first trimester isn't the best idea since the fumes are so strong.
And colouring in the first trimester can be risky, not for baby but for your hair lol apparently the crazy hormone changes happening in the first trimester can make your colour wonky and not even close to what you were going for.
If you wait until the second trimester your hair will be better to work with and baby will be out of the really important development stage.

I died my hair twice while pregnant. My doctor told me to just be in a ventilated area.
