Straightening a 2 year old hair????

Would you do it? Why or why not?
My sister is beyond pissed. Her sister in law straightened her 2 y/o daughters hair. I would be too. So would you do it?

  • Honestly I wouldn't care if it was done with a iron. Once you give her a bath then her hair would turn back to curls.

  • oh my goodness...umm..yes momma has every right to be upset...why on earth would you do that to a two year old sure she didnt enjoy it...i thought i was crazy for worrying about using hair gel to help keep my little girls hair from getting frizzy! i would politely tell teh person that you prefer they not use something that is extremly hot next to your childs head again...def without permission..what are people thinking when it comes to others children these days..i get that raising chidren takes a village in todays society as we all have such busy lives, but there are still two people whom make the decisions for that child: they are called dad and mom! good luck!

  • I'd be mad just because its potentially dangerous and she didnt even ask. was it a full size or one of the new mini hair straightners? ..I guess it doesnt really matter, I'd be upset either way

  • Chemically? Or with an iron? Iron, no biggie, chemically, yeah, there's reason to be upset.

  • I have my daughters hair ( with an iron) ... she has wild hair and sometimes her curls are tame and sometimes they stick straight up... I dont do it often, just if her hair is crazy and we need to go somewhere

  • It was with an iron. It was done without permission.

  • I would be upset if it were done chemically or with an iron. I child that young does not sit still enough to ensure that they won't get burned by a hot iron. There is no need for it. Wait until they are older if you must.

    Your sister has every right to be angry.

  • Nooooooooooo! Girls remember that a straightening iron is HOT and leaves ur hair very HOT. It damages ur hair and makes it more weak. I would be livid if someone did that to my daughter.

  • Ditto to the above answers and I would question her judgment on what is appropriate for a 2 year old.

  • i straighten my dd's hair from time to time....just adding something new to the 2 hairstyles that she wears i'm very careful about it, and never let her hair go while it's hot, i'd rather my hand be hot and a little sensitive for a little bit after than have her burned. yes, i would be mad if someone did that to my child without permission.
