My oldest is 8 and started asking me questions about colouring hair last year. Santa left her some hair chalk, we've used it a total of 3 times and she has forgotten all about it.
I wouldn't put a colour in my kids hair at this age...bit of a right of passage thing for me. One of the girls in my youngest daughter's class had blue hair for the majority of kindergarten. I wasn't really a fan of it, but not my child so not my concern.
My kids get to experiment with their hair and 'express their individuality' through hair cuts and hair styles. My oldest has the use of hair chalk if she wants to as well, but that's as far as we'll be going until the teenage years.
Oh, and just because it's been mentioned...they don't have their ears pierced either, because I don't think they are old enough to make a properly informed decision yet.

She likes her hair short anyway. Most parents I know won't let their little girls get short haircuts no matter how much they beg. Her hairdresser said they get girls in all the time who take to their own hair with scissors because they want it short. I don't understand why a parent would insist on a girl wearing her hair long, short hair is so practical. Each to their own though.

On the topic of colours, does hair chalk damage hair at all? We have some here and just putting it on seems awfully drying to the hands, I wondered if it does the same to hair?

I don't think it would be too bad. It might make the hair feel dry as it absorbs the surface moisture but there are no harsh chemicals so it's not actually stripping moisture from the hair itself if that makes sense.

When I have it in my hair I use conditioner and a comb to remove it before shampooing to avoid snagging the hair.
Just be careful though, I was platinum blonde and used pink hair chalk when we first got them in at work, it stained so bad and we had to do a few bleach washes to remove the staining and it still left some pinkish residue.
I don't think it would stain natural blonde hair (like a child's) as mine was most likely stained due to the porosity of my hair after all the bleaching.
So I would not use it on damaged blond hair I had a salmon pink side fringe for about 2 months.
I'm dark now and have no problems with staining.
