Aaaawww, she's adorable :) and I'm not a parent, so maybe my advice is just stupid, but I think if you find a way to explain it to her and she understands it then she'd be able to make up her own mind on it. I mean, if she doesn't like them, they can be combed out, but try to help your husband to understand that you think it'll be good for her and if it's what she wants then there is literally no negative aspect to it at all. Parents and relatives have this idea of how they want kids to look and act sometimes, but people have their own minds, even kids, so if it'll make her happy, why should she be denied it?

I totally agree with you! I was showing few pictures of kids with dreads, and she seems to like it. So I'm gonna go ahead and wash her hair, and clarify it. And do acv rinse, and comb it one last time(if needed).

And we'll see how her hair does on its own.

Thank you for your advice!

Oh that makes me so happy! As long as your husband understands no one else matters. You just tell your family members that they need to keep their negativity to themselves. Don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

You're very welcome. I'm happy to have helped anytime but I'm especially happy to have played a tiny part in rescuing an adorable little girl from comb hell!

Her hair is going to lock up fantastically. I hope you keep us updated on her progress as well as yours.

I think dreads on children are really really cute. I know my son likes the idea but gets really impatient when it's long and in his face because he is very active and sweats a LOT. Also, his school was hit recently with lice so I was grateful he has short hair now. He's in the first grade and if he told me this is what he wanted then I would help him achieve it. :)

I don't have advice really because I don't care what other people think, but she is darling, and if she can make an informed decision, I'd totally let her hair dread! She would be adorable. My sister went through similar and had to have super short hair growing up since she would bawl every time my mom got the brush or comb out. No one even considered dreads, which is sad!
