Keratin to Relax Perm?

I have naturally thick, wavy hair. Last week I went to get a perm, I wanted my waves to look better, but she used too small of a rod so now it is way too curly. I wondered if a keratin treatment would give me my natural hair back. Or almost close to my natural hair. Because I don't want pin straight hair.

Since you went to a salon, I would go back and speak to the owner. Have the owner fix it or refund your money. If you try to fix it yourself, they won't help you.

I did contact the salon one day after knowing I would hate this perm and said I should have insisted on largest rods, I know how my hair takes a perm. Her reply was "that would undermine her as the professional" I began going to her salon when I already had a same scenario bad too curly perm from a transgendered school for hairstylists, this shop owner was aware of the bad situation and has spent a year cutting it off a little at a time, and professionally coloring my hair as well. I am 69 and need roots, color jobs.


I was so highly offended that she played the " I'm the professional and it's my call" attitude, I know she won't be seeng me again, I would rather take my chances at the transgenic school and pay 17.00 as opposed to almost a hundred, for the same results! I trusted this small shop owner who has been my exclusive hairdresser since the bad perm, and here she turns around and does the same bad thing to my hair. It's the texture of dryer lint. I have not left the house even to get the mail for a week now. I am going to buy a perm and comb it through myself, suffer the consequences. It couldn't be any worse. Her advice was really moisturizer it, call me and let me know how it is in a week. I g

I would go back there and ask them to fix it.

Here is an article from Livestrong:

Perming changes each hair strands structure. Its impossible to completely reverse this chemical effect on your hair. However, applying a deep conditioning treatment within days of receiving the perm might help loosen the tight curls. Begin by working canola or vegetable oil into your locks. Allow the oil to remain for five to 10 minutes before rinsing it away with water.


Apply a thick layer of a moisturizing deep conditioning treatment to your damp hair. Allow it to penetrate for two to three minutes. Rinse the hair and repeat the deep conditioner application. It might take several applications of deep conditioning treatments before you notice any change. However, this might not be effective. If this is the case, consider allowing the curls to loosen naturally over time.

Thank you for your reply, but I've already done this 3 times. I think I'll have to wait it out.
Will the keratin damage my hair even more?
