  • Yes, my daughters ages 4, 8 and 11 years old all got pink streaks in their hair! My 11 year old begged for it and the others wanted to do it of course but there was plenty of dye and they all loved it!! It lasted for A LOT longer than it was suppose but it is almost gone now!

  • only during halloween and it was with my nieces hair and it was just the spray hair paint. I wont dye my kids hair cause I don't want it damaged.

  • Oh gosh no. They weren't into that kind of thing. They were...and are...more preppy and collegiate.

  • It sounds cute but it does damage the hair ...I didn't allow dying until my kids were 13 only because it was rebellious to try new hair colors, lol,

  • I don't think most dyes are particularly safe. I avoid unnecessary chemicals for the most part. I've used spray-on color on my kids hair for Halloween, but that is about it.
