I would. I even asked my dd if she wanted to. She said no which kind of shocked me. Then again she doesn't deal well with change.

If my DD asked to dye her hair for a long time, I would probably let her do it over the summer. She is pretty conservative and just had her nails painted for the first time at age 5.5 so I can't relate.

Last time we got her hair cut, there was a product at the salon called Zach's Wax. It is temporaty, washes out after one use.

I would, but I am wary of chemicals. I'd use Kool-Aid ( 1 packet of kool aid to 1 tbls hair conditioner).
Can you dye hair funky colours with henna?

I wouldn't let my own kids use hair dye because of an extreme sensitivity to dyes in general- even "food safe" dyes are poison for them. But if your DD doesn't have this problem, then hair dying might be physically safe for her. And if she's been asking for 2 whole years...
I dyed Sophie's hair last year (dirty blond) with a temp. red dye and it stayed in for nearly NINE months. It was horrible, Ronald McDonald red. I felt horrible for her, but she loved it.
