I hope it is okay if I respond to your question. Denise and I work next to each other and have for 16 years...so I am pretty sure we will be on the same page. She may post some other ideas, but here are mine.

Hot oil treatments do nothing to improve the condition of the hair because the molecules are too big; however, it is very good at fading color! I would suggest you use a three step conditioning approach every time you shampoo. It is of critical importance that you use only professional products. Your shampoo needs to be sulfate free and we are finding that paraben free is a plus, due to the recent research finding parabens are linked to breast cancer. I recommend you layer moisture, reconstructor and detangler on your hair in that order. Because you will be using professional products, a very small amount is required. These products are labeled accordingly. Reconstructors often have the word "pac" in their name. Keep a wide tooth comb in the shower and after layering the products, comb them through all the way to the ends of your hair. Do not over rinse your hair. Wrap your hair in a towel for 5 minutes or so. Do not rub the towel on your hair. Use a leave in conditioner to comb through your hair. Hair is a fabric and it needs to be treated with care.

As far as color...you will achieve blending of the gray with a demi permanent color, but not likely complete gray coverage. I can certainly appreciate money being tight and always suggest that you consider going to a beauty school. At least the products are of professional quality and instructors oversee the work of the students. Don't be afraid to ask questions of the instructors to make sure you are getting what you want. Single application color to cover gray shouldn't be too difficult for them to formulate. Call around and ask to be scheduled with a senior student.

Good luck with your pregnancy! I hope this helps.
