  • waxing
  • shaving
  • tweezing
Bleaches and depilatory creams are not recommended, as many of these contain chemicals which may affect your baby. It is also best to avoid all laser or light treatments during pregnancy.

Are you worried about your hair perm? Once you perm your hair, you need to keep very carefully. Instead of going to <a href="http://www.cchairextensions.com/hair-weave-weft-c-83.html?SHOP_BY_LENGTH=10">18 inch hair weave</a> an expensive salon and costly products to use some natural ways to maintain your hair perm. Permed hair care, use of these methods. Light hair oil hair lost a lot of natural oils, chemically treated, such as perm. Massage 4-5 drops of light hair oil, such as almond oil into your scalp, then take a bath. You can even take it a day or two better<a href="http://www.cchairextensions.com/micro-loop-hair-extensions-c-2.html">micro loop hair extensions</a> . It will not make your hair look oily, but give it a shiny appearance. It becomes difficult to keep dry and permed hair.
