At what age is it safe for your children to dye their hair, and how to guide them as mothers.

Age-Appropriate Hair Changes: Nurturing Teens' Hair Dye Desires with Mom's Guidance

We all know that adolescence is a challenging period for both teenagers themselves and their parents. We've been through this phase of life and remember the urge, innocence, and the need to belong to society while also standing out. To be cool.

A characteristic of teenagers is experimenting with different looks, including hair dyeing, but as parents, we often wonder about the safety aspect of it. When is it okay for teenagers to dye their hair, and how can mothers guide them through this process?

(Do you remember the emo culture from previous generations?)

If your child's change in hair doesn't violate school rules and they're between 16 to 18 years old, we suggest experiencing their first hair color change together!

There are many hair colors and dyeing techniques available now, with plenty of choices, but the most important thing is that they're safe for the hair.

If your child wants a drastic change (e.g., from blonde to black), it's good to do some research or even talk to a trusted expert to suggest less damaging alternatives, perhaps opting for a semi-permanent dye or an ammonia-free one.

What we definitely want to avoid is hair damage, so don't let your child change their hair color alone at home. Instead, see it as an opportunity for a mother-daughter bonding experience where you'll spend quality time together and share another first experience with your daughter.

Directly suggest to your child to go to a good salon where their hair will be properly taken care of and they'll receive advice. Explain the risks that may be involved if they attempt such changes at home. The most significant risks are:

  • Uneven color application
  • Incorrect timing, leading to hair damage
  • Psychological distress if the desired result isn't achieved, resulting in embarrassment and possibly further attempts to correct the mistake, which could cause more damage.

How to help:

  • Encourage your children if they want to change their hair and explore hairstyle ideas together.
  • Explain that the quality of their hair may change from what they're used to.
  • Schedule a salon appointment with your daughter for consultation and diagnosis, where all your questions and concerns will be addressed.

If your concerns are resolved, book your appointment, and happy first hair dye!
