Did you get your perm done at a salon? I would go back and let them take a look at this.

Your hair is gone through a lot, it will need to be deep conditioned. You need to cleanse & protect your hair. Also consider cutting it a little bit too.

You are going to have to deep condition your hair. You can use a conditioner on your hair and wrap your hair in a plastic bag to allow it to sit on your hair for several hours before rinsing it out.


You may need to get some of your hair cut off in order to be able to brush or comb your hair. You should try and comb your hair as little as possible until you can get your hair back to health.

My friend just shared her go to. I haven't tried it yet, but her hair is amazing and she says it works for damage from perms or health conditions.

She uses grocery store coconut oil--she says to get the kind that is thick and white--not sure what brand as her stores are different than mine. Then she said to scoop out a blob (like a very small scoop of ice cream) and very gently rub it into your hair. Put a warm towel (from the dryer) around your head and let it sit on your hair for an hour or two (as long as you can stand it).


She said she has slept with the towel on, meaning left on all night and it was good, but if you are not careful it will stain the pillow cases and sheets.

Then very gently with baby shampoo, wash it out, DO NOT blow dry or style. Let it air dry. Repeat daily.

If the damage is too severe from the perm, you may need to see a stylist and have all the damage removed.

Be gently with your hair!! Avoid any rubber bands etc. until the damage is starting to heal.

I got a really bad perm like that one time, and it dried out and matted so bad. I found that using half a cup of coconut oil, and mix it with half cup of leave in conditioner, wet your hair and put in ALL of the mix all over your wet hair. Then take a towel, get it a little wet and put it in the microwave for a few seconds to get it warm.


Put the towel on your hair and let that mixture sit on your hair for an hour or two. Then rinse with warm water and this should help with the matting, condition and also shine it too. Good luck!

Make sure you handle it as little as possible. If a salon did it, have them go back and fix for free. If you did it, go to a salon or beauty school for treatment

If you got it done by a pro, go back to them asap. If you did yourself, you will need to deep condition often, and get your hair trimmed. I would use fingers to comb through.


Do not use brushes and pull. Treat it like it's super fragile. Over time the texture will return but you've got to condition often.

Wash scalp ever 3rd day. Condition excluding scalp. Bend forward and stay this position while washing body and feet. Rinse hair with cooler than normal temperature. Rinse entire self. Once out add any oil such as coconut argan olive oils. Leave in do not wash or rinse out. Finger comb out stay away from hair brushes. You will be pleased!
