Singer Pink is all too familiar with mom-shamers. And now she’s sticking up for fellow celebrity mom Jessica Simpson.
As Dearly previously reported, singer and fashion designer Jessica Simpson was mom-shamed after she shared a photo of her 7-year-old daughter, Maxi Drew, with her hair dyed different shades of pink and purple.
Many of Simpson’s followers thought Maxi was too young to dye her hair. But others thought it was nice to see a girl so young expressing her individual style.
One of those people was fellow singer, Pink, who also knows what it feels like to share photos of her kids doing everyday activities, and getting shamed by some of her followers.
So, in defense of Simpson allowing her daughter to dye the ends of her hair, Pink also shared a photo of her dying her 8-year-old daughter Willow’s hair blue.
Pink wrote on Instagram:
I heard people were bummed on Jessica Simpson for letting her seven year old get her hair colored. So we thought we’d share what we did yesterday.
She paired the comments with the hashtags, “Blue hair, don’t care,” “Get your own kids,” “Parent police are actually just lonely, sad people,” and “I’ll dye your hair too, losers.”
The singer also disabled comments so that people couldn’t start shamed her as well.
As Dearly previously reported, Dr. Sejal Shah, a New York-based dermatological surgeon, told Good Housekeeping that it’s best for children to wait until they are at least 16 years old before dying their hair.
Dr. Shah said the reason for this is because children’s hair is often finer before they hit puberty and therefore, the dye can cause much more damage to prepubescent hair and skin.
Dr. Shah also added that it’s best to stick to temporary colors or a trusted professional when choosing to dye a child’s hair: “These temporary colors just coat the hair shaft and do not penetrate it as a dye would.”
