Social Media Slams Mom For Straightening 3-Year-Old Daughter’s Hair, ‘It’s Child Abuse’ – Grandma Responds

A mother on TikTok is threatened with CPS because she posted a video of her daughter relaxing her hair.

Most of us remember our first perms, some at a very young age…..and honestly, back then it was considered completely normal.

When the natural hair movement started in the early 2000s, we started to notice a change in mentality.

Women who had relaxers for years began to learn not only how to take care of their natural hair, but did the mental work that came with appreciating how their hair looked in its rawest form.

That said, relaxants never completely disappeared, women and children still receive them religiously.

Here is the video mom shared on TikTok:


my daughter has a relaxer🥺 #imnotexplainingshit #relaxer #natural #toddler #thismymfbaby #fyp

People chastised her for using hair straightener on her daughter at such a young age, with some claiming the video was going off.

😳😳😳😳😳 This is so triggering I can honestly smell the relaxer and feel the burn 🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺 super sad 😞!

now i’ll believe her when she says my hair won’t grow because my mom put a perm on it when i was young i’ll believe this one

It’s fine but you could have gotten the same style without the relaxer. Braid them like I do for my daughters. 🤷🏾‍♀️😩

SMH 🤦🏽‍♀️I have always been taught to only relax hair after the first period.. it interferes with natural hair growth and transition

Mom needs her ass to cut her hair, but she couldn’t do anything but relax her daughter’s hair

This shy be child abuse

It’s beyond sad and high/key mute asf. Not for this hairstyle??? She’s 2…I’m even angrier at the stylist for doing this

However, not everyone was negative, some said relaxants “are safe” when done right, and others simply pointed out that…. she can do whatever she wants with her daughter.

It’s in the comments that you talk about fibroids and other factors! I had a relaxer until I was 27. I’ve never had one and I’ve always had healthy hair.

As long as the person knows what they are doing, relaxants are fine for a child. In my case natural hair or not yet long asf🤣🤣💀

my mom did this to me and my hair was long and healthy. It all depends on how you take care of it

Honestly, my hair grew a long time with the perm. I just grew up and my priorities are now related to health

The little girl’s grandmother reacted to the backlash, giving insight into how they ended up at the salon in the first place.

It should be mentioned that more studies have been shared on the dangers of relaxants, with some linking frequent use to uterine and breast cancer.
