Children and Relaxers

The topic of little kids and chemically processed hair is by far a rough topic.  Back in the day we relied on hot combs to straighten the hair of our daughters,nieces, grand daughters or customers.  We couldn’t seem to let the girls be beautiful just the way they were, there is this  ideal notion that we have to let children young as 7yrs old be ashamed of their ”Natural Beauty”.  This same story is still continuing today.  The story has taken a vastly different change from the hot combs that went on the stove in the kitchen on Sunday morning, to the ever so convenient purchase of the relaxer.   The need for these products have become a very big business, and it is growing rapidly and we are adding to this devastating dilemma that is destroying our younger generations self-esteem and their love of self.
