Many of us grew up in a period when it was normal to relax a child’s hair between the ages of 5 to 10 years old. These days, more and more parents are choosing to keep the hair of their daughters natural to build self love and self acceptance. Here are just some of toddlers, preschoolers, and older who are proudly wearing their beautiful natural hair.
1. Riley Elle
Remember when Riley came onto the scene as a mini toddler? Well, now she is 5 years old and still rocking her natural hair. Here are a few photos from her instagram page, where she is described as a “Tot-treprenuer”.
2. Leah Jeffries
Some of you may recognize Leah from the show Empire, in which she plays Lola Lyon (the biological daughter of Luscious Lyon) on Empire. She is 5 years old and wears her natural hair proudly.
Now for little miss adorable Serenity Mabon. She is almost two years old and loves to read, climb things, run, and dance. Look at all that hair!
Kaacy is also on Instagram and proudly natural at the age of 7. She is self- described as a “French fashionista” who resides in Paris.
5. Kaya and 6. Yanna
If you follow Bronzegoddess on YouTube, then you have probably seen her three beautiful and natural daughters. (Yes, all her daughters are natural!) While the youngest is still a babe, the middle daughter, Kaya, is 3 years old going on 4 while Yanna, the oldest, is 8 years old.
7. and 8. DiscoveringNatural’s daughters
Finally, here are the adorable daughters of Discoveringnatural on YouTube. They are 6 and 10 years old with gorgeous heads of natural hair at ages where many of us had already converted to relaxers.
How old were you when you received your first relaxer or texturizer?
