Hairdressers stress that a perm swells the hairshaft, which can cause already-porous curly hair to become dry and frizzy, the opposite effect of what a curly intended. … “If you want to get rid of frizz, wash and wet your hair every day. If you want to get rid of curl, you really have to relax it.”
Will a perm help my curls come back?
A perm will chemically alter your hair. While it would bring back the curls, there could be a less drastic option that could bring them back. Sometimes when hair grows longer, the curls will seem to disappear so consider a hair cut.
Why is my perm not Curly?
The two main reasons for permed hair not being as curly as desired are, the perm rods used were too large in diameter and produced a wave rather than a curl. The other is that the perm was under processed (assuming your hair had the proper elasticity to be permed).
How do I keep my perm curly?
If you must, don’t go any further than simply scrunching the hair with your fingers to set your curls. While your hair is in an adjustment phase, you don’t want to use any sort of hairbrush , but instead finger-comb your curls or if absolutely necessary, use a wide-tooth comb in the shower with lots of conditioner.
