Nine Months Old- and Relaxed?!?

 A scene from Chris Rock's "Good Hair" in which a little girl has her hair relaxed.

No, that isn't a trick headline. I saw this video on Black Girl Long Hair and was shocked... and appalled. In this YouTube post, a pretty little three year old is asked about her relaxed, badly damaged hair. According to her mom, she received her first relaxer at just nine months old! Here it is:

As I commented on BGLH, I think this is a form of child abuse. I don't believe her parents had bad intentions, but it's still horrifying they would subject their baby to chemicals that has now resulted in her having to take medication.
