Kourtney Kardashian Defends Her Decision To Highlight Her Hair While Pregnant

Expecting reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian is fully aware of the dangerous chemicals lurking in hair coloring products and the 32-year-old socialite insists her new head of highlighted locks was performed in a baby safe – and fully researched – manner.

“I followed all of the guidelines from my doctor and took the proper precautions necessary,” Kourtney writes on her personal blog. ”I highlighted my hair (which is considered the safest form of hair colour while pregnant) and NOT to the root, so nothing ever touched my scalp. I also used products that did not contain any ammonia.”

‘It is also recommended to be in a well-ventilated area as well as being at least in your second trimester, and I followed both of those rules,” she continues. “Anyone who knows anything about me knows that I take caution in all the products I use all the time, but especially when pregnant.”

No matter how diligent she was with research, Kourtney – who is mama to 2-year-old Mason and due with a baby girl this summer – admits she doesn’t know how to feel about her new look.

”I still am not sure how I feel about the colour,” she writes. “I would say dark probably suits me best, but a change is always fun! At this point, I don’t want anything else on my hair besides sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. :)”

”I decided to change up my hair to try something new. I haven’t touched my hair colour in over 10 years and thought it was time for some fun. Don’t even ask … why now after 10 years … I’m just crazy.”
