Pregnancy Safe Products from DryBar

Pregnancy Safe Products from DryBar

Pregnancy safe beauty products can be super difficult and confusing. I have an entire guide devoted to what products are safe to use while pregnant including information on what ingredients to avoid while pregnant and a huge list of pregnancy safe skincare products.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from DryBar as of 4/9/2023. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

      It has chemical sunscreens, so ok for nursing but not pregnancy. But read the bit under which hair products to worry about, you shouldn’t be applying a finishing spray to your roots. This is the kind of thing that should go all over your hair, the hair shafts but not the roots/scalp. So you should be ok.

      You’re not really meant to apply this to the scalp (which is why I haven’t reviewed it), info here: Hair products to worry about

      This has salicylate and chemical sunscreens and is ok for nursing but not pregnancy.
      I didn’t screen it as you only need to worry about products applied to your roots, and this product isn’t meant to be applied there. Info here: Hair products to worry about

      Thank you SO much for creating this post!! I recently saw a TikTok video bashing sodium benzoate which is found in many beauty products including Drybars – I am wondering your thoughts are on that ingredient during pregnancy? I am seeing conflicting things online on whether it’s safe or not. Thank you!

      • 5.18.23
        Christine said:

        I basically don’t trust anything I see on TikTok. You can pretty much find info out there about avoiding everything possible, much of which isn’t based on much. It’s not considered an ingredient to avoid by the medical community. My list of ingredients that I screen out is very conservative and it’s here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      Don’t forget that you only need to worry about hair products that you’re applying to your scalp. (which you likely aren’t a texturizing spray) That makes life much easier if you don’t need to screen a product’s ingredients 🙂

        This is a more general question and I totally understand if you are unable to answer. What would your thoughts be on getting occasional blowouts at the Drybar salon? While it is possible that they may use “unsafe for pregnancy” shampoo during the service, would this be a significant concern as it would old be isolated rather than daily use? Looking at your list, it seems like it may be difficult to get a blowout there using only products in the pregnancy safe category. Thank you so much!!!
