    My 4.5 yo dd has asked me to dye her hair but I said no because of the chemicals. Spraying color for crazy hair week at daycare is ok though as its not as harmful.
    Similarly I won't polish her nails but don't mind if she colors it with textas. To me it's more about the effect it can have on their skin.

    Yeah look, don't get me wrong, just because I said I have no issues letting my kids dye their hair, doesn't mean we don't have boundaries, it doesn't mean that they get everything they want, in fact, it's rather the opposite. My children most definitely know the 'N' word

    Also, again, just because I said that I would go the hair dye route, also doesn't mean it would be my first preference. Of course you'd do all the other things first; wigs, hair chalk, coloured hair spray, clip in extensions and all the rest. But ultimately, if those things didn't suffice, then sure, I have no problems with dying their hair. It doesn't make me any more of a bad parent than someone who says 'no'

    As anything in regards to parenting/family decisions and rules, we are all different. Whether its getting your daughters ears pierced, circumcision, bottle or breast, smack or no smack. We all make decisions based on what we feel is right or in relation to our past experiences in life (especially our upbringing). I probably wouldn't do it, however I have no strong feelings that are against it either. I can see the mothers point as to why she made that decision but I don't think it's for us!

    A napro 6 wash thingy? Meh, if she really wanted it and it was a one off I'd consider it. Not a permanent dye as that is too much upkeep and hassle if they don't like it anymore. I don't think it's a big rite of passage and people modify their children in much more permanent ways (ear piercing, circumcision, cosmetic procedures).

    My 4 year old has never asked but I myself don't think it's that bad, there are chemicals in so many things.. Girls that do dancing are plastered in chemicals (make-up), unless they wear all natural stuff, most shampoo and conditioner is pretty full of crap too.. Hair colour would be that but worse though, of course..
    It would be a 'no' from me, but I wouldn't think badly of someone who allowed it.
    We have coloured hair spray, chalk, etc.. That will do her for now.

    This is a small snapshot of someone's life. No doubt she'd never make the mistake of sharing again.
    She chose to let her daughter colour her bair. Obviulously she didn't feel 100% comfortable with her decision as she then wrote an article giving about 5 different justifications of why she did it.

    unless shes bleaching it first... then those bright colours arent harsh at all. in fact most of them are conditioning and make your hair softer than ever. manic panic dyes are vegan natural dyes those 6 wash napro dyes are pretty much conditioner with food colouring in them... its just not that big a deal chemical wise

    I love the automatic assumption that if you let your child do something like this then you never say no haha

    I know right - we're raising horrible little heathens who have never heard the word no, them and their coloured hair is a menace to society

    Little kids tend to have really soft, fine hair that is much easier to damage than an adults. So no, I probably wouldn't let my 4 year old dye her hair. But hair chalks, coloured clip in extensions etc I wouldn't have a problem with. It's not that much different to playing dress ups.
