When I was growing up I remembered getting excited at these type of "milestones", coloring hair was reserved for teenagers and was something I looked forward to.
If we are letting our children experience things at such a young age, what do they have to look forward to?

DD who is almost 4 often asks for different hair colors, it started off with her wanting red because I coloured my hair red..then moved on to other colours. I don't think its a message that her natural hair colour is boring, to me it's just like asking for dress over skirt or pants.
That being said I don't dye her hair..I just braid it with different colour braids.

No but just because a 4 year old's hair is so soft and perfect - I wouldn't want to mess with that.

Nope. Mine can't even think about asking me until 12. That's when I first got a colour.
The other night they had a disco and so I let them use spray colour. It was in for about an hour, they came home, we washed it out.
I have to dye my hair constantly so the girls actually think hair colour is a chore, it's annoying. Hopefully that continues!

No way! Spray on colours, hair mascara I would be fine with.

No, I wouldn't want all those chemicals on my 4 year olds head. She said she explained the process to her daughter, including that there'd be chemicals and her daughter was okay with it. I'm sorry, but a four year old has no idea what she's agreeing to, and what the deal with the 'chemicals' is. Plus I don't like the idea of teaching her that she can just modify any part of her body she doesn't like.
Her child, her decision, and if I saw them walking down the street I wouldn't care or think anything of it. But when asked - its a no way from me.

No way in hell is my daughter touching hair dye until she is old enough to pay for it to be done professionally. That means 16+
