Last month, twitter user @_jussKENNIESE tweeted out the following images of faux locs on a young child.

The style is definitely cute and on trend but many twitter users took issue with this type of style and whether it was appropriate for a child so young.
“This child on my TL with these faux locs looks like she’s in so much pain”
“DO NOT! DO NOT! DO NOT! GIVE A CHILD HAIR EXTENSIONS, TRACKS, FAUX LOCS OR ANY SYNTHETIC S***! LET THERE NATURAL HAIR GROW!”
“Faux locs hurt me so bad I couldn’t go into work for two days. That poor child”
Much of the concern was rooted in the belief that the child could be in pain from the installation of the style and increased tension due to the weight of hair applied to her young scalp.
What do you think? Are faux locs and braids appropriate for a young child?
