I remember I had a friend in high school who dyed his hair a ridiculous color without his parents’ permission and they were…not happy with him.
And this story totally reminded me of that time long, long ago…
Is this mom acting like an a**hole for how she’s handling this situation?
Read on to get all the details…
AITA? Daughter dyed her hair badly and refuses to go to school
“Can’t believe this is happening but here we go.
Daughter (14) has always been naturally blond, however the last few months brown hair has been coming through her roots. She has asked us if she can dye it earlierbthis month.
We said yes, but only if its done professionally – an appointment is booked for 8th February, very popular salon with good reputation, meaning long wait times but if its being done its being done right. Reason for this is both her, her sister and my wife have very sensitive scalps, last time older daughter used an at home kit it went badly wrong… doctors kind of wrong.
Youngest daughter was happy with this and agreed to wait, but this weekend went out with her friend and bought an at home kit, dying her hair at her friend’s house without any adult assistance.
Well, now it’s orange.
We offered to buy a brown or black kit to cover it until her appointment, but she screamed she is a blonde, not brunette and hasn’t really left her room since.
She is refusing to go to school until WE ‘fix it’. I said I don’t have a magic hair fixing spell, and the choice is go dark for 3 weeks or put up with the orange colour, we phoned the salon but they cannot move up the appointment, but will contact in case of a cancellation.
So AITA for sending my daughter to school with self inflicted orange hair?”
Check out how Reddit users reacted.
One reader said she’s NTA and that her daughter messed up.
Another reader said she’s NTA and this will hopefully teach her daughter to be accountable.
And this Reddit user also said she’s NTA and this kind of thing is a rite of passage for teenage girls.
