When was it unanimously decided that putting those knocker balls in our kids hair looked good?
Whenever I see them, I am reminded of the time in 3rd grade, when my migraines were so bad, that I went to the back of the class... and cut off every single one of my braids. Its become one of the defining marks of black childhood. I went to Africa last summer, and did not see a single little girl with those darn things in their head. Lots of stretched earlobes... but no knockers. Personally, I would sooner stretch my daughters ears...
Surely there must be a different way to style our children's hair.

i use them on my 4 and 5 yr old daughters' hair. i think they r so cute. now when my mother in law does their hair, there is like a big a** wad of hair in the comb for some reason........their hair looks extra tight......to top it off, they used to lose hair around the edges.

for some reason, she loves to do their hair....i hate it when she does their hair because she makes it break. when ever i c her about to do it, i get so irritated.

i've told her not to do it so tight, and not to use this product or that product n their head. but i would rather her not do their hair all together

I have never used them on my daughter's hair.  I hated them as a child and I hate them now.  

They gave me the worst headaches and used to pull my hair out when I was a kid...my mom clearly didn't know any better, but they aren't even healthy for hair.  The tangles, the elastic stretching and pinching hair strands. No bueno.

I love knockers. I used to put them in my daughters hair when she was little. I can't remember my mother putting them in my head though.

I put them at the end of my daughter's plaits...never at the base, and there aren't more than a few. She doesn't sleep in them, they aren't hanging in her face, and they aren't all different colors. For me, too much of anything (I've seen 20+ barrettes on the end of 20 plaits), be it too many different COLORS or too many ACCESSORIES...LOL, not just knockers.
