My dd is 6 and her hair is almost down to her butt. She has always had long hair, she was born with a head full even. She wants to cut her hair. I dont have a problem with it, and this year there has been a horrible lice outbreak at the school. She has already had it twice in 3 weeks. I have had to wash, treat, comb, and clean the entire house from top to bottom so many times I have lost count. That being said I dont mind a hair cut maybe to her shoulders.
Her dad however says no. He says she cannot and will not ever cut her hair to her shoulders while she lives in our house. He doesnt have to manage it, comb it when she gets lice, hair spray it, braid it, or anything I do every day. It takes a good 10 minutes to wash all shampoo out, another 10 to comb it, 15 to dry it to damp, and more to put it up and look nice for school.
I am thinking of just cutting it when he is at work. What would you do?

When I was a little girl I also had REALLY long hair and my father didn't ever want me to cut it, he thought it was so pretty blah blah. I didn't want it short or anything and I really resented him not taking the way I felt into account. It was my hair after all. I had an aunt who is a stylist and she cut it for me and to this day I love her for it:) If your daughter wants her hair to be cut I say talk to your husband and let him know that she feels this way and you think it's a great idea because of all the reasons you mentioned in your post. I wouldn't do it without telling him but I wouldn't let him control the situation either.
