Damaged Hair - Bad Perm On Natural Curly Hair

by Michele

I am a Apostolic woman with natural curly hair. How ever my hair was getting so long that the weight of it was pulling my hair straight in some places. After a while it really started to bug me. I am also a cosmetologist and know first hand the damage a perm can do. After awhile of debating I decided that instead of cutting my hair or putting long layers in it to spring the curl back into it, I would have it permed.

I talked to the stylist about having it spot permed. I thought that would be the best option. However she did not. Long story short I let her perm my entire head. Mind you this was to avoid cutting it. Well she fried it! In my opinion, she didn't roll it right. Anyway it was down to my butt now its just below my shoulders and still fried. Its been almost 4 days now and im still mourning over it.

Ladies when it comes to perms, my advice is be happy with what GOD has given you and you wont regret it later. If you get a perm, 100% of the time you will have some degree of damage and its usually a lot worse than better. Also you should take hair vitamins twice a day to strengthen your hair and help it grow faster.

Give yourself scalp massages to improve scalp circulation which also helps hair grow. And last, which should be first PRAY to JESUS about it, leave it there, learn from it and move on. Easier said than done, I know. GOD BLESS!!!!

I have naturally straight hair down to my rear and I decided to get a perm (after YEARS of thinking about it). The hair lady specialized in long hair perms for 25 years. She said that my hair was the healthiest long hair that she had ever seen (I thank the Lord for that!) I only wanted big curls and she did her thing and my hair was SUPER curly! I mean tight, tight curls up to my scalp!!! Long story short my hair is FRIED!! I cried and didn't want to get out of bed for the whole next day! It has been 1 1/2 weeks now and I have thoughts of just taking the scissors and chopping it!! I am so upset! What should I do???
