Many fans were surprised when a very-pregnant Kourtney Kardashian stepped out with noticeably lighter locks in mid-March. The buzz had nothing to do with the new hue itself — it was the fact that she opted to switch it up in spite of research suggesting that the chemicals in hair dye may be harmful for unborn children.

Still, any Kardashian aficionado knows that Kourt’s all about natural and organic products, so we figured the celebutante knew what she was doing. But just to put fans’ minds at ease, the eldest K-Dash sister took to her official blog to explain her decision to dye.

After 10 years without a change, Kourtney said she had a sudden urge to lighten up, but she didn’t act on a whim. “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,” the 32-year-old socialite wrote.

Not only did Kourtney choose to highlight her hair, which she explained is “considered the safest form of hair color while pregnant,” she made sure that the chemicals never touched her scalp. To be extra safe, she used products without ammonia and had the job done in a well-ventilated area.

“Anyone who knows anything about me knows that I take caution in all the products I use all the time, but especially when pregnant,” she added.

Sadly, it sounds like all the hullabaloo was for a look she’s not even crazy about. Kourtney revealed that she realized she prefers her hair darker. Still, “At this point, I don’t want anything else on my hair besides sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. :),” she wrote.

Sounds like she’ll be leaving the dramatic makeovers to Kim!
