  • I think its really up to you. I remember they used to make this paint stuff that wore off after a couple days that we used to put in our hair as kids, but we were 10 years old and not 3. It could be a fun thing for you two to do together?

  • It's fun, it's summer, I would let her do it. There's plenty of colored gels that wash out, you could also use a semi-permanent hair color that washes out a little at a time, you could use kool-aid, or even a marker depending on how dark her hair is.

    Or you could forget all that and just get her a colored clip-in.

  • Don't use any color! Just go to a salon and have them put one fusion extension in! It won't cost that much, and it's better than coloring her hair so young!

  • mine (3 too) wanted red in her hair and cut short like me...I cut it short but wouldnt color it, unless of course it was the spray color that washed right out

  • they have that holloween costume colored hair spray at party city, it comes off whenever you give her a bath ! * i say do it, it won't hurt anyone & she'll feel so grown up, just like her big cousin... very cute ! :)

  • If you want her to be a follower then be my guest. Personally I think 3 is too young and what if that is not good enough for her? She sees another little with something else and it goes on and on. 3 year olds are not suppose to feel grown up. They are suppose to act 3!

  • Buy her a clip on extension! No harm done!

  • You can buy a clip with the color at Claires or Glitter or you can go to Great Clips and buy the 99 cent packets of colored hair gel. :o) You don't want to dye her hair so little, but there are a lot of other options! I think Walgreens might still sell the color hair mascaras as well! My daughter was the same way, and I would just take her into Glitter and buy the clips for a dollar and she would be happy!

  • I would either buy and extension or get some of the dye that washes out right away that way she can feel special and not be always purple lol.

  • I don't see no harm in it; so long as it's a hair clip or something that washes out in the next shampoo. She adores her cousin and wants to be "cool" like her. nothing wrong with that. it's not like she wants he belly button pierced lol!
