The answer is NO! As a hairstylist, I do not recommend using a relaxer, perm or any other chemical service on a child under 16 years of age. My 8-year old client had a chemical straightening service done on her hair months ago from a previous hair salon.
Her mom brought her in for a big chop, to get rid of the damaged hair from the chemical service. She wanted her daughter to start over and begin her healthy hair journey. Happily, I obliged and began to give her our Fab Curly Cut. Then, I took her to the shampoo bowl and gave her a luxurious wash and deep conditioning treatment.
