    I just dont see it that way. Sure I have self worth issues but for me they are not at all linked to my appearance. I actually love my hair. I love changing it and trying different things.

    I guess if I felt it was linked to my childs self esteem in that way then I would endeavor to help them deal with why they feel that way. But I dont think it is linked for everyone.

    No I wouldn't let them do it. I'd buy them a wig for dress ups instead. Some things are nice to wait out until you're a bit older before you get to do it, hair dye is one of those things for me.

    My oldest two are 6 and nearly 9 and the question has never come up, so I'm a bit meh whatever about it. I guess a crazy hair day at school or some spray for a disco has satisfied their hair modifying urges....for now ;-)

    Yeah I guess I don't see this as such a biggie, which surprises me as I definitely fall into the "no earrings on children" camp.

    No.
    I'm a hairdresser and studying trichology.
    most salons I've worked at have a 14-16year rule when it comes to dyeing hair.
    I've seen adults have sever reactions from hair dye, chemical burns, even with semi's and some natural colors.
    I wouldn't risk my child or anyone else's with that possibility.
    I would also wonder about the permanent damage to hair follicles at such age.

    Children's skin is also a lot thinner than adults, it will absorb more chemicals than what an adult will, and given that children’s systems are underdeveloped they may suffer greater adverse effects from such exposure.
    So whilst the average adult can handle the chemicals in hair dyes, for a child, they absorb a lot more and it's just plain dangerous .
    It's says "poison" on the bottle for a reason.


    Edit to add:
    Just read through the product label on my color tubes, it states "this product is not intended for use in persons under the age of 16"
    I'll have to get out my old tafe books and look at the risks with color and children.
    If I can figure out how to post a picture of the warning I will

    My girls have never brought the issue up either. I'm in disbelief at all the comments she gets in public, I don't think her hair looks nice at all, it just looks inappropriate.

    Boundaries and limits need to be set somewhere and at an age appropriate level. There is no need for such a young child to be colouring their hair and there are plenty of other ways they can express themselves. My girls love to wear costumes and play dress ups. That's what a 4 year old should be doing!

    It's on the first line, this is for permanent professional hair dye.

    First line again, this is for semi-permanent professional hair dye.

    My 5yo DD wants to dye her hair... She's very "out there" and loves to be different. I understand wanting to change your hair, I change mine a lot. So I just bought her hair chalk and clip in coloured extensions and that's keeping her happy.

    I'll be discouraging her from dying her hair when she gets older, until she can fully understand how hard to is to look after. Mainly because she has super dark hair and she'd need to bleach before doing anything crazy, and that's just too much stuffing around haha
