If you are the teenager, I am sure you are having plenty of ideas you want to experiment with dying your hair with some vibrant colors, piercing nose or eyebrows, learn ballet, etc. But undoubtedly, there are many obstacles like your age, school rules regarding the dress code, tuition timings, or just some parental issues. As you are a cute little lifeline to your parents, they don’t wish you to do some stuff. Sometimes they stop you following the current trends or sometimes they are just worried. So, it is not right to annoy them each time to prove your point right. As per me, to convince them patiently is the key to success. In this article, I will tell you the ways how you can convince your parents to let you dying your hair. So keep calm and read further.
How Old Should You Be To Dye Your Hair?
I suggest that you should be 16 years old or more to apply the hair color as it is a chemical. So before you take any impulsive decision, you must have known each and everything related to hair color. You should know about the type of hair colors, all the color options, effects and side effects of the hair color, duration of hair color, different brands, costs, etc. There is also an option of patch test so that you can be sure that it is not allergic to you.
How to Convince Your Parents to Let You Dye Your Hair?
There must be a lot of people who have very strict parents. They just don’t get what are you talking about if the idea is too ‘out of the box.’ So, they end up rejecting your ideas you want to apply to yourself. Most of the times, they are worried about you, and that’s not bad at all. They have all rights to decide what is right for you and what is not! So, be patient and don’t annoy them. Ask softly and smartly.
1) Tell Your Parents that You Have Researched Well.
As I mentioned above in this article, you have to do a lot of research before deciding to dye your hair. Don’t follow the trends or your friend’s or favorite celebrities’ style blindly. Each body reacts differently to dyeing. So first of all, tell your parents that it is safe and will not harm you in any manner, and also you will get the patch test before applying the color dye.
2) Tell Them That You Will Try Semi-Permanent Color First.
Most of the parents don’t allow dyeing because they think that you will get bored after few days or the color will not suit on you or your school authorities may have the issue regarding your colored hair, etc. So, the best way to convince them is to tell them that you are going to apply the semi-permanent color first and not the permanent one. Such colors don’t last long and you can quickly get rid of it.
3) Put Your Point Nicely and Be Patient.
It is essential to talk with them nicely. Have patience and never throw tantrums on your parents as that will never work. You can argue softly and try to convince them that if you do not like your hair, you will go back to your previous color or the original one! If they say NO, then ask them the reason that why they are not allowing you. Don’t start yelling.
4) Tell Them That You Will Pay for It.
This argument may work out well. Tell them that you have saved a lot for it and you really want to do this experiment of dyeing your hair. Tell them that you will get it done by the professionals and will pay all by yourself and not going to ask for the money. Eventually, your parents may allow you to dye your hair.
5) Show Them How much You Want It.
Parents don’t want to see us unhappy. So, if you are being nice and asking softly without throwing any tantrums, then there are chances that your parents will soon allow you to do whatever you want. They observe everything – your research, your willingness to pay for it, your attitude, etc. So, they know how much you want it, and most probably they give the permissions.
So, these are some of the tricks to convince your parents to let you dye your hair. There is one thing to keep in mind is that if your best girl or your younger sister with whom you want to experiment any dyeing is yet not reached at the 8 years of age, then STOP! It is not at all safe. Never apply any semi-permanent or permanent hair color to a child under the age of 8 as his/her scalp as well hair may get allergies.
It is better to use the techniques of foiling color or the using a highlighting cap to avoid allergies on the scalp even if you are an adult. I hope these things will help you to convince your parents for piercing your skin or dyeing your hair. I wish all the health and happiness to you guys. Enjoy…!
