Damaged Hair From Perms?

I got a wave perm last week. After I shower, my hair still feels dry, and is extremely tangled to the point where I have to start combing it out, and the hair is almost impossible to comb. Not to mention a lot of hair falls out during the process. Also I have a baby that is 4 months old now (so I know the falling out comes from that too).


I have also received a magic straight perm over a year ago, and another one preceding that the year before. I was told that my hair was already damaged from the magic straight, but since it has been over a year it should be okay. However the hair is completely damaged, dry, and impossible to comb. Need some advice on what to do from here.

If you got it at a salon, go back for them to fix the problem, especially if they are the ones who told you getting a perm "should be ok" after the magic straight treatments. The treatments chemically alter your hair, so the ends have had 3 chemical treatments, 2 magic straight, then one permanent wave.


You will likely have to get your hair cut, at least up above the part that has had magic straight on it twice and now permanent wave, and maybe even up past the part that has had magic straight once then permanent wave. It sounds like the ends were overprocessed. While you may be suffering some hair loss from childbirth, you are likely suffering breakage in the overprocessed areas as well. You will need to have some deep conditioning treatments, after your cut. So sorry this happened to you!
