'How Young Is Too Young to Dye Your Kid's Hair' - Tips from Paul Labrecque Salon

If your kid is begging you for streaks of funky shades in their hair, you may be tempted to give in. It's just a little color, you think, what could be the harm? Well, depending on how you opt to achieve said streaks, you may need to reconsider your decision. We spoke to the experts to get the lowdown on when it's safe to dye your child's hair.

Temporary options can be great for kids, too. "I give lots of kids bright color tips, but only with the approval of the parent — and the kid is usually 'camp age' or older," says Paul Labrecque, hair guru and owner of Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa. "Color chalk is the safest way to incorporate fun hues like pink, blue, green, and more — no pre-bleaching is required to use them." He notes that a few tips or highlights is all anyone reputable would do, so be wary if anyone suggests coloring or bleaching your kid's whole head.
