What age would u straighten their hair or let them straighten their own hair. My friend straightens her 5 year old year for school every morning and u can tell its straightened as its quite thin and fly away and obviously poker straight
Anyway made me wonder... What age do u think is right to let them get straightners or would u straighten their hair?
Having a boy I don't need to worry about this but It did make me think. I don't think I would as 1) I didn't get straightners til I was about 13 and my hair got really damaged 2) I don't think I'd make my little girl feel like she needed to do it to look pretty.
But then again... If they had really thick frizzy hair maybe I would? Just a thought I came across lol wondering others opinions
I wouldn't because I wouldn't want her to fall in to the trap of changing everything about herself, plus I adore curls. I'd allow it on special occasions or at weekends when playing dress up. If she didn't like her hair I'd rather just put it up in a pretty style so that it wasn't ruined by irons.
I would maybe do it if she asked very very occasionally. But given the damage it does to my very thick hair when I used them 2-3 times a week, I'd never let her use them regularly until she's much much older, it would ruin her hair.
speaking as somebody who hated my frizzy hair and didn't experience straighteners until I was at uni when I finally felt like I could manage my hair, then I wouldn't want to 'hide' them from her. However I wouldn't encourage it for everyday use.
In nursery they have a set of straighteners that they've disconnected the cable from, and frequently I've walked in to find her 'straightening' her hair because she has seen me doing mine (mine is done after every wash)
I wouldn't want her to feel like she was unhappy about her hair if she would feel 'better' being able to style it/straighten it, but I wouldn't really want that to happen until maybe aged 10 or teenager to do more than occasional use.
No because I love curls. Same other way around I see no harm on putting a few curls in if I had a daughter with straight hair and she wanted it. Its ok to take care of your personal appearance after basic hygiene. Thats as far as it would go through wouldn't go dying or giving mental hair cuts. Odd time I spray the back of Williams hair in conditioning stuff as it can go frizzy.
Atm Millicent's got beautiful curls but then I did til I was about 7 then it went poker straight (now it's half half). Not really thought about it but I don't think i'd like her using them all day every day til she was a teenager?. My friend occasionally straightens her 5 year old daughters hair for parties etc, really suits her. I've blown dried Millies hair straight once and it looked so weird! x
