Last weekend I went to my counsins house to help her out with the twins, when I came in I saw that she had them with towels around their neck, hair divided in four and was about to start perming the first one's hair. You're probably asking what's wrong with that, but the problem is that they are 5!!!!. I don't know if it is written on the relaxer kit or not, but I am pretty sure you are not supposed to perm Kid's hair if they are that young. Isn't that dangerous?
I was like Tia what are you doing? and she went on about how the gurls cried each time she brushed their hair and so she believed that relaxing it would make it easier for them.
Needless to say I talked her out of It. The whole situation got me thinking, when is an appropriate time to relax your kids hair? I remember the first time I got my hair relaxed, I was probably 9 because that was the first time I got my weave. I remember feeling like Hot shyt and I wanted to take my hair to school, but my mom told me that the principal would cut it off. lol. Anyways I personally think that relaxing your daughter's hair at an early age would definately set them up for having damaged Hair.
What do you think?
