Perming a 3year old’s hair?? Do you consider this child abuse? Is this mother going to far to conform to social pressure?

abuse!!! strong word but I'm more on that side than not. something just doesn't sit well with me on perming a 3YEAR olds hair…jeesh.

I dont think small children need their hair permed. I think mothers should take the time to care for their daughters' natural hair until they are teenagers. At that point I don't even think chemicals are necessary. A little tlc goes a long way. 3yo is definitely too young!

Definitely abuse! It has gotten to a point that we are so obsessed with mainstream definition of beauty (i.e. straight hair etc) that we don't even pay attention to what is and is not appropriate. A child's scalp is not mature enough to stand up to the harsh chemicals in relaxers. Most experts will tell you that you should not put such chemicals on a young childs hair before age 5.

Personally, my mother would not allow my sisters and I to get chemicals on our hair until we were in our junior year in high school.
