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.
Finally, I applied our From Drab To Fab CURLY KINKY COOL Defining Cream from the roots to her ends, bringing her curly tresses back to life. Needless to say, the daughter and Mom were both elated and made another appointment to get her protein treatment.
