  • Get some wash out blue.

  • unless it is only a play color (like the ones they use for Halloween).... i wouldn't color it. the chemicals would not be good for him and also it will start damaging his hair at too young of an age. Um there is also the kool aid option (at least this wouldn't be harmful if your are 4 sure going to do it but then that will stain pretty bad and may not turn out cute. Otherwise I'm sure he is cute as a bugs ear just the way he is and you should enjoy that as long as you can before he starts wanting to do these things himself LOL

  • I hate this trend. They are children not Big Head Makeup and hair Barbie's.

  • It isn't safe to color his hair at that age. The chemicals aren't safe for children.

  • Why the crap you would color a 2 year olds hair EVER. Unless it was for halloween or a play or something.

    I am assuming you are meaning just for fun?

    You are teaching him that what he is is not good enough or not right.

    Whatever his hair color naturally is is GREAT for him.

    LEAVE HIM ALONE! Poor kid!

  • Get different cans of spray on colors, try a new one each day and see which one he likes the best. My son always went for the blue. Never did a permanent color though, probably won't either.

  • I cut my 3 year old sons into a mowhawk and put in this color gel that washes was blue with yellow tips! We let him pick the colors and he loved it! I think some of the others have a point that semi/permament dye is not good for that young of age. BUT.....there is absolutly nothing wrong with wash out dye! As for what mom2twobabes said....that is bull shit.
