Girls with perms/relaxers…?

Asked by: Blossom Hugs 242 views Hair , , , , ,

How often do you get your hair permed? How often do you wash it? What else do you put in your hair to keep it nice? What kind of relaxer do you use? Basically I’m looking fir tips to taking care of permed hair. I’ve had a perm for a long time and now I’m trying to grow my hair back because its breaking off really bad.
Give me anything you got :) thanks

    If you have a relaxer i would recommend first off in maintaining it straight and healthy by keeping it moisturized. best product i’ve found is LIV conditioner when styling you just need a dab on your finger tip ran through the ends of your hair once a week, also wrapping your hair at night(you can see how to do this on youtube) or setting your hair with large rollers or rods at night keep from using heat as often and this also protects your hair from further damage. I also would say try to do a deep conditioning or hot oil treatment once every two weeks. When it comes to washing it you will get mixed answers, but i work with hair all day so I recommend not washing at all for the first week because chemicals are fresh. Also try limiting how often you wash your hair to maybe 2 or 3x at the most, this will prevent your hair from becoming further damaged also remember to condition well after. Lastly moisturize right after conditioning and washing your hair, try luster silk pink oil moisturizer( a very small amount rubbed through ends) after gently towel drying your hair. you can try other moisturizers if you like, but I recommend staying away from gels, and hair grease or wax as they create more of a build up and the need to wash more…And touch ups should be done once you have 1-2 inches of new growth sounds crazy but it will help you out in the long run. I hope this helps…sorry it’s so long..also try to have someone help you when doing perms/relaxers at home though its preferred and safe to have it it done by salon professionals …be safe! and good hair journey

    Never do it yourself, go to a professional that you trust to help you get your hair back to health. Also try minimizing heat to your hair or use a heat protectant if you flat iron alot because that could be why it is breaking. Use a satin cap to wrap your hair in or sleep on a satin pillow case. Try using a protein rich oil such as coconut oil to help with breaking. There is a grease you can use that has coconut oil in it by softee and also their indian hemp grease is good too, that helped my hair grow.
