Kourtney Kardashian Defends Her Choice to Dye Her Hair While Pregnant: The reality star defended her decision to get highlights during her pregnancy: "I did research about doing anything to the color of my hair while pregnant and followed all of the guidelines from my doctor and took the proper precautions necessary. I highlighted my hair, which is considered the safest form of hair color while pregnant, and not to the root, so nothing ever touched my scalp. I also used products that did not contain any ammonia." {Us Weekly}
