Before reading this article you may want to read this post on the different relaxing options open to you, namely relaxing, texturizing and texlaxing, all the pros and cons of each plus photos of the various techniques so that you can better visualize your final results.

As a professional hairdresser; I do not think children’s hair should be relaxed but this is my very personal opinion. My mother was adamant about not relaxing my hair; in fact I didn’t get my first relaxer until I was sixteen years old.

Did I want a relaxer as a child? Absolutely but by the time I got my first relaxer most of my friends with relaxers had begun to show severe damage or thinning.

If a client came to me wanting to relax their child’s hair I would spend a considerable amount of time during the consultation in hopes that they would delay it until the child was older.

I would not ultimately refuse to do the child’s hair if the parent insisted but I would feel obligated to give them all of the necessary information that would allow them to make a carefully considered decision to proceed.
