Sorry to hear about the twins.
I have quite a lot of grey hair and am only 30, so wanted to dye mine during pregnancy. I spoke to my mid-wife, my GP and spoke to the owner of a hair salon that I know well. All told me I would be fine to dye my hair, however the salon owner did say that I had to be 12 weeks. She also suggested a semi permanent dye. My thoughts were that if it did go into the blood stream and was harmful it would have been banned years ago. So I did dye my hair!
I would suggest having it done professionally and have a patch test first with dye because our skin responds differently when we're pregnant.
Hope that helps
