Mother Straightens 4-Month-Old Daughters’ Hair

Social media users were outraged when a picture of a 4-month-old baby girl with straightened hair circulated on the internet. Naturalista and even women with relaxed hair are having negative opinions about the mothers’ antics. The debate between natural and relaxed tresses is probably the biggest of 2014 in the black female community and the question that arises in this debate is how young is too young?

Four months  is clearly too young. At that age, your hair is delicate and hasn’t fully grown into the hair that you will have for the rest of your life. The amount of damaged that can occur to virgin hair by putting that much heat on it can be detrimental to its roots and it’s growth in the future. What are your thoughts on the child’s laid hairdo?
