My 19 month old came home from her dads Christmas Day after a 5 hour visit and her hair is noticeably lighter and shinier. Her hair is usually dark like mine but now its a coppery brown. I can't believe her hair could lighten up so much in a 5 hour time frame and Christmas Day here was not exactly sunny. Ex dh is odd and his gf is even weirder. She frequently changes her own hair colour so i'm starting to wonder if they have done something to her hair. My mum and friend think they may have put a rinse in it. How can I tell?

Normally you can smell the ammonia or dye in your hair, I find it takes quite a few washes to really go but it's especially noticeable when it's wet. Can you wet her hair and see if it smells? That's a really odd thing for them to do!!

Check the roots especially along the back of the head as I doubt a 19mth old would sit still long enough to dye it properly also around the ears could be dye marks?
Did they maybe put a treatment in it or straighten it?
What a horrible thing to do!!!

Could they have used Sun In spray? I used to use it when I was about 20, just sprayed in.

OP, I hope they didn't use hair dye on your little one
ETA: I just asked my DH (who used to be a hairdresser many years ago) and he said take your DD to a hairdressing salon and they should be able to tell you just by looking at her hair.

Yep the smell should give it away - used to drive me crazy when I would put colour in. Not sure about sun in though I haven't used that.

A rinse wouldn't lighten hair. It needs to be stronger to lighten and the smell would definitely give it away. Could be sun in like Hollywood said...

Could you ring and ask him straight out what he put in her hair? Is he likely to tell you the truth?

could she have gotten her hair dirty/gone swimming etc and they washed it and used a different shampoo./conditioner to what you use and it made it shinier ?
