Should parents relax their toddler's hair

While speaking to Briefly News, Lazaros Sumbane told the publication the dangers of parents relaxing their toddlers' hair. The qualified artistic and creative hairstylist said the following:

"No, I do not recommend that because relaxer is not good for kids. There is a certain age you need to reach in order for you to relax your hair. For example, if you are under 12 or 13, you are not allowed to apply relax to any baby or toddler," he shared.

The hairstyles went on to add that the chemicals are dangerous and affect the scalp by "burning and irritating the scalp." He also expressed that the "chemicals are too strong and can not be used on kids."

" There are no recommendations, I can only say if the kids are above 13, you may use the relaxer for kids."

As an alternative for kids, Lazaros Sumbane recommends that parents wash and conduct treatments on their kids' hair or "seal press."

"Seal press does not damage the scalp, it only deals with the hair, just to make the hair straight without using any strong chemicals so you can use, wash, treatment and seal press. It is the most safe technique that one could use to make the hair soft without using any chemicals."
