It is always important to look spectacular and keep your face and [eyebrows] in a neat state. The period of pregnancy can be quite difficult in terms of using cosmetics and paints. Recommendations of cosmetologists about eyebrow staining by trimesters of pregnancy.
The question of whether it is possible to dye eyebrows and eyelashes during pregnancy remains serious for many women. It's not that dyeing and cosmetic compounds can cause direct harm to the body of a woman and a child - unlike hair coloring, the amount of dye is minimal. However, pregnancy is accompanied by serious changes, and even a small effect of some formulations can give an undesirable effect.
What risks arise when coloring eyebrows and eyelashes during pregnancy:
in the first trimester, the body's response in the form of toxicosis is possible;
changes in the hormonal picture as a reaction to ammonia, phenols, benzenes, parabens, replacing wax;
allergic reactions that did not occur before, and now can manifest themselves suddenly and acutely;
swelling of the eyelids and forehead, redness around the eyebrows and eyes, swelling on the face.
As a rule, such a response of the body is a signal of rejection of some component of the paint. The question is which of the components? Here you should be careful and study the compositions of cosmetics, which you decided to use for [shaping the eyebrows] and subsequent coloring.
Modern formulations for coloring hair and eyebrows may contain a small amount of ammonia. Previously, it was much more, but now it is worth reading the composition of the paint - as a rule, it is not recommended to get involved in coloring in the first trimester. For hair, you can use soft tonics, on the advice of a cosmetologist, this composition may be suitable for eyebrows, but it is not very convenient to use it.
Cosmetic pencil and eyebrow shadow also raise some doubts. They may contain parabens and benzene compounds, which impart softness, plasticity and a pleasant smell to most modern products. There will be no direct harm to the child, but allergies and local inflammation are quite possible - during pregnancy, a serious restructuring occurs in the body. It is worth using only cosmetics from proven manufacturers and marked "hypoallergenic".
The choice is narrowing, but still there is a fairly safe, proven for centuries option. This is a biotattage of eyebrows with henna for pregnant women - a composition of plant origin is traditionally used for hair treatment, wound healing, and for safe coloring. However, it is worth paying attention to a few features!
In its pure form, henna and basma give brown-red colors with redness, and this is not suitable for everyone. In addition, they stain the skin around the eyebrows.
Modern means in addition to henna may contain synthetic components, so it is worth reading the composition on the package.
Henna can give a very intense languid tone, but it will last a long time, and it is difficult to wash off such a dye. Painting eyebrows with henna should be done with full confidence that you will not want to quickly change something.
For complete confidence, it is important to use formulations with a high content of henna, pure, powdered henna for brewing, and be sure to be safe - to do an allergy test at home.
Natural henna has a characteristic vegetable smell, rich and completely non-perfumeful. Brown gruel is easily applied to the eyebrows. You can hold it from 15 minutes to half an hour, the depth of tone depends on the exposure time. But you will not be able to adjust the color of the eyebrows in parts - the intensity will be the same along the entire length.
Is it possible to [make eyebrows on a stencil] during pregnancy using henna? Yes, you can, only carefully, because henna can leak under the mask (pads) of the stencil and stain the skin. Much more serious is the question of how to navigate the composition of the dye with this plant pigment.
Hair and eyebrow dyes with henna can be different. These are compositions of Iranian and Turkish henna in pure or almost pure form, unchanged in color - the safest. In second place are henna-based paints. They can contain 75% of the natural component, and the rest in the form of pigments or stabilizers, including synthetic, benzene. The risk of reaction increases. The third option is henna paints. In them, the plant part is small, usually below 25 - 30%, it is used to give the color durability, strengthen the hair. But other components of the composition may be undesirable from the point of view of allergies during pregnancy.
You can dye your eyebrows during pregnancy if you follow a number of simple conditions.
Choose only high-quality cosmetics and avoid paints with ammonia, phenols, benzenes. Look for hypoallergenic formulations.
Wait it out - after the first trimester, there may be no undesirable reactions at all.
Use formulations in the form of pure henna or henna-based. It is quite easy to recognize them - if the package indicates a color that does not coincide with the color of henna (brown-reddish, copper), then there is clearly an extraneous pigment in the paint. Henna may vary slightly in hue, but not in color. The black color gives basma mixed with henna. This is a good option for coloring eyebrows during pregnancy.
Be sure to do a simple home allergy test - apply a little paint, eyeshadow, pencil dye or henna on the inner surface of the arm and elbow. After half an hour or earlier, redness may appear - this is a reaction, and the composition can not be used.
You'll have to limit your imagination. For example, [eyebrows with a house] require very accurate painting and drawing of the outline, so you will have to use a pencil or shadows. Therefore, be sure to check the reaction to the composition on the hand! If you do not experience obvious discomfort from the smell of paint, did not see an allergic response, then paint your eyebrows calmly. And do not forget to warn the master and your position when visiting a beauty salon!
