Lazy Town How many of you parents have heard of the show on Nickelodeon called "Lazy Town"? If you have, how many of you parents out there have had your daughter ask you if they could dye their hair just like the little girl on Lazy Town? And for those that don't know what I'm talking about, well there is a show called "Lazy Town" on Nickelodeon and on the show is a girl who has pink hair. It's a really good show for kids and kids seem to really like it. Anyway my daughter is 4 years old and in Pre-K and has asked me if she could dye her hair like the girl on Lazy Town! I told her that maybe on Halloween or maybe some other day we could do it for fun. I would of course use the washable dye, that is if I do this for her. I am just having mixed emotions on it. Half of me is saying dye her hair pink for one day and then the other half is saying not to dye it and to just keep avoiding it. How would you answer this if your child asked to dye their hair pink or any color, to look like one of their favorite characters of one of their favorite shows? Would you do it if it was washable and only lasted a day or two or do you think that it's out of line for someone so young? Just keep in mind before answering, if I was to do this, it wouldn't be permanent. I would use the washable kind of dye that they actually have for kids. Some are against it and some are all for it.. Please share your opinions with me..

My daughter read about different colors and then we bought the spray in the cans. She thought it would be interesting. We homeschool so she could try anything and it would be mostly us. She is adventuresome and has even colored her brothers hair. This is good for expressing herself and much better than other thngs she could be wanting to try. I vote for purple. In your case you have the school dictating the condition of attendance. So over a weekend it would be cool. Good luck.

Thanks for the comment! And I'm not really sure what her teacher would think about the pink hair. I'm sure they would send her right back home or something. I am going to do it over a weekend when I do dye her hair pink.

Hi foxxee, I know that sometimes small children have these little hero's that they want too be like,i think this is normal for children.If you do this for one day,that would be fine,no problem,but what happens when you try to wash out the "PINK" then what? I know children because i have raised five of them,what if she has a problem with you washing it out of her hair? Have you given any thought ot that?What happens if she crys and wants to keep it in her hair,and she gives you a problem taking it out?your little daughter just might like it so well she won't let you wash it out and crys to leave it in,thats what concerns me.Now if you tell her it is only for one day ,you will have to get her to agree to that first before you do it,if she agrees it will only be for a day and then she agrees to let you wash it out ,then do it..otherwise don't do it unless she agrees to that.Children are very senitive but they will always stick to their agreements,because they are honest..I use to assume because mine were small i could do what i wanted,but not so..they are little but they have a mind of their own just as we do,so as long as you have a firm understanding with your daughter then go for it for a day..Good luck.

That is very true. I can actually see her crying when it comes time to wash it out and then I'll have to remind her that the deal was just for a couple days. I'm probably going to do it over the weekend, just in case it takes me a little longer to get it all washed out. LOL!

on a 4yr old? no way. however, there are dolls (Barbie i think) that come with these little bright colored hair clip thingys that can be braided into both the doll and the kid. i let my 12yr old use that spray color stuff during Halloween. she has slyly mentioned to her father how "everyone at school" is dyeing their hair, and i firmly said No. for one...i pick her up everyday at school and NONE of the kids coming out of the buildings have their hair dyed (lol) second..my mother didnt let us do anything like that until we were 16..then she said "its your hair, you understand what it means to "live with it" so go for it if you really want" and since that worked for both my sister and myself (we certainly thought twice after the first attempt and going to school like that lol!!) i figure it should work just fine on my daughter too.

Thanks for the comment! I do know what you are talking about. I will look into it. She might have fun with the colored braids, maybe even more fun. I might even have fun with that! :)
