Some of you reading this may think I'm overreacting and taking it to an extreme, but in over three years of blogging about hair I've talked to hundreds of women about hair. And I can't remember anyone saying to me that the way their parents cared for their hair when they were children hasn't affected their relationship to their hair in one way or another. Especially women that have grown up in Scandinavian countries.
Ultimately you as a parent make the choices for your child. Yes, they can ask to have their hair straightened, but you choose. I cannot tell you what to do, but I hope this post at least got you thinking a bit about how a change in hair style is not just a change in hair style, it can be so much more.
