Hair Damaged from Perm Solution Not Being Rinsed Out

by Barbara
(Norwood, MA)

I had thick light brown hair a year and a half ago and now it is thin and mostly grey. My hairdresser had a girl rinse my hair out who had never rinsed a perm before and she hardly rinsed it at all. I kept calling for my hairdresser to help me but she wouldn't come over, so after a lot of frustration, the girl just wrapped my hair, and I was so aggravated I just let her. After that, it started falling out and gradually started turning grey.

Also, I have developed a number of wrinkles om my skin since and I am wondering if they are caused from the dry scalp. I asked two of the hairdressers in the salon to color my hair and they wouldn't. Is there a reason for that?

I started having a different hairdresser in the salon cut my hair after that experience. Is it safe to color my hair?

Damaged hair cause by perm

Hair breakage, scalp irritation and burn are typical signs of a bad perm and yes the rinsing is a critical part of perm treatment and that can cause irreversible damage to hair if not done correctly. Grey hair and wrinkles are hardly normal signs of unsuccessful perm.

Hair coloring is not safe at this stage and I advice against it. That's probably the reason that stylists refuse to color your hair. You need to nourish and condition your hair and stay away from any chemical treatment for at least 6 weeks.
