  • My little girl is two and I have her wash and shampoo herself of course I still help but I like her to begin to get that independence now. But our two older ones where about four before completely by themselves.

  • 5. We started out with tear-free and now he is 7. He wants his hair long so I taught him how to use conditioner too and he does it by himself.

  • DS is 2 and has been doing it for about 2 months now. I just make sure he gets all his hair soapy and rinsed.

  • My son at about 5, but he';s kinda lazy and will only do things if we make him. My daughter is 4 and REFUSES to let anyone help her, even though her hair is halfway down her back and she can't quite get it all, yet.

  • Hmmmm I don't let my 6 year old do it yet. Never mind my 5 and 3 year old. We have a hard time with the long hair and tangles and I can only imagine if they did it themselves.
