Jessica Simpson causes controversy after dying her 7-year-old daughters hair

Jessica Simpson has come under fire after she dyed her daughter’s hair.

The mum posted photos of her seven-year-old daughter Maxwell’s dyed locks and was quickly hit with waves of backlash for ruining her young daughter’s blonde hair.

Maxwell had the ends of her hair dyed purple which resulted in hundreds of commenters slating the former actress for allowing her daughter to do it.

Jessica posted a series of snaps from the salon where Maxwell had her hair done. People were quick to mum-shame Jessica and accused her of being careless.

One asked, “Isn’t she too young to have her hair dyed?”

“Don’t like it at all !!! Much better before the color. The new color makes her look older than her age,” another shared.

Another mum advised, “It’s so hard to get out when you want it back. Just ask my daughter.”

Jessica’s fans were quick to defend the mum-of-three. Many stressed that only the ends of Maxwell’s hair was dyed purple so it could easily be cut off if she grew tired of it.

Others praised Jessica for letting her daughter express herself at such a young age. Her seven-year-old girl’s hairdo was inspired by Disney show The Descendants.

Many mums said they also dyed their daughters’ hair and it caused no harm. One wrote, “My daughter loved me for doing the same thing.”

“Gorgeous, my daughter would love to do this to her hair!” said another mum.

What do you think? Was it foolish of Jessica to allow Maxwell to dye her hair or is it just a bit of harmless fun?
