I want dd to accept herself as she is. She is mixed, and their is a lot of self hate and a struggle to fit in, in their unique community. I want dd to understand that she is fine as is. She doesn't need to change herself. She will not be allowed to alter the color of her hair, but when she is 16, I will allow her to get it cut however she chooses.

13 maybe but not dye. She has beautiful reddish-brown hair, I wouldn't want her to mess with it.

as soon as she started talking.. I think she was about 4 when we took her to get her hair cut at walmart.. The lady asked me how I wanted her (dds) hair. I just looked at her and said: Ask her its her hair not mine..

Her look was priceless.

I don't have a daughter but my parents controlled everything I with mine so...I think I would let her have freedom with her hair within reason from the age of like 6

My daughter is 9 and she can tell me what length she likes but I have final decision. LOL When she's 14 she can dye it whatever she likes......that's when I started doing what I wanted.
