Hillary Duff dyed her hair blue – and the internet immediately mom shames her

It's 2021.

And yet somehow, people still don't seem to get that mum shaming really isn't a thing we should be doing to others. Ever.

Recently, it was Hillary Duff who found herself on the receiving end on a lot of unsolicited advice and criticism, when she, at eight months pregnant, decided to dye her hair mermaid blue.

Spoiler: She looked amazing.

However, the internet being the internet, of course, people had to weigh in and question the mum-to-be about colouring her hair while pregnant.

“Well . . . you guessed it,” Duff wrote on Instagram. “The minute I got home from New York, I needed a change.”

The 30-year-old continued, thanking the stylists, who gave her the new look, saying they “love me a lot. 1- for saying yes to another crazy change this late in my pregnancy (at least I didn’t cut bangs!) and 2- it took all damn day!”


No sooner was the post up, however, did the comments start to tick in, questioning if this was such a good move by Duff – who is already a mum of two, let that be said.

And more:

Interestingly, according to American Pregnancy, “Most research indicates the chemicals found in both semi-permanent and permanent dyes are not highly toxic and are safe to use during pregnancy.”

Also, no one needs your unsolicited opinions of their choices about their own bodies, get it?

Duff and her husband Matthew Koma announced the pregnancy news in last October, and Duff is due in just a few weeks.

The actress did make sure to let her fans know her change of hair colour was in no way meant as a gender reveal.

“I swear this doesn’t mean I’m having a boy . . . my mom thought I was trying to tell everyone something!”
