I have done on my dd1's hair. But only very occasionally (about three or four times in the last 18 months) for parties and suchlike. She knows it's not good for her hair, but once in a blue moon isn't going to kill her. (I have been known to give her Fruit Shoots too, though, so I may just be a bad role model!)
I used them on my dd when she was three, but only because she begged to try them to copy me. Her hair is poker straight anyway and she never asked again. I suppose if they liked the effect they might be begging every morning which would be awful pain. Agree curls and waves and beautiful.
My friend uses them EVERY DAY on her 2 year old. I was when I found that out. I think sometimes is ok but I'd make as much as a palava out of it as possible so that dd prefered me to just leave her alone [mean emoticon]
1. The curls get tangly easily and they think that "straight" hair will be easy to brush 2. Their hair ins't actually even. It can be in very tight ringlets at teh sides but only just wavey at the back.
As a compromise to saying I wouldn't straighten i have offered to rag it tonight for a party...even before your suggestion MamaG
hairdresser told me to use spray leave in conditioner , mousse and comb with a wide toothed comb. DD's hair looks so much bettermore even curls,iykwim. Straightening is o.k once in a while but I think they all end up looking the same.
