I'm a hairdresser...and from a professional point of view, I would never perm a 5 year old's hair. It's not fully developed yet, and the process is way too long and tedious for a 5 year old to undure. You did the right thing...wait until she's about 9 ot 10.

Hey, I first colored my hair when I was 11. I did it on and off for a while. Sometimes it was a nice normal auburn dye. Sometimes I went to the hairdresser and asked for bleached with red and white stripes. Sometimes I sprayed in highlights of blue, purple & pink. No harm done. It's only hair. Thank goodness my parents didn't laugh at me.
And my husband gave himself a mohawk in high school. When he showed up for the school play that way (he was IN the play) it didn't go over too well with the director! LOL. But pretty soon he just shaved it all off.
It's wonderful to be young and able to do stuff like that. So much fun.
