Permed Hair Lost Some Curl

I had a perm once before, and while not spiral, it was curly not just wavy. I apparently haven't figured out how to comb/pick them (LOL), so however often I would brush it right before I washed it, and after I washed it/got it wet, it would spring back.

Just over a week ago my friend gave me a spiral perm (and it looked awesome). I sprayed it with a squirt bottle and rinsed it when I showered, but I ended up waiting 5.5 days until I washed it with shampoo and conditioner, I also brushed it right before.

I know that brushing can break your hair off, but I never had an issue with it before like actually ruining or pulling my curls out (like I said I'd wash it and it'd bounce right back because I waited until it was set). Well after it dried it wasn't nearly as spiral and was kinda frizzy (Ugh!). I was like okay well it's always curlier before you wash it the first time. Then I realized I didn't get different shampoo and conditioner, I used the same cheap stuff I was using on my limp unpermed hair. So I haven't used that shampoo the last two days. I've just used a squirt bottle to get it wet and that has made it look better. My mom bought me a better quality shampoo conditioner and styling product, so I'm waiting to wash it again until I get those.

So basically the answer I'm looking for (LOL) is brushing didn't ruin or pull my curls out, it's probably a combination of the first wash and cheap shampoo? I don't want to ask my friend because if brushing did pull it out, I don't want her to know :(

I would use the recommended shampoo and conditioner. I would also get a wide-toothed comb to comb out the wet hair. Hopefully it will be better next wash

Be really careful brushing and combing curly hair if you want to keep the curls. Use shampoo and conditioner made specifically for wavy and curly hair also pick your curls instead of coming .This will help keep the curls longer!

I have shampoo and conditioner that is great for curls , it specifically brings the curls back and you can use a pic instead of a brush to hold the curls , this will enhance what you already have !

There are shampoos and conditioners that help to preserve curls , also instead of combing and brushing out the curls try picking and using your fingers to enhance the curls more!

Spiral perms are different than normal perms for sure. I did one on my hair and used a pick to comb my hair with after a shower.

You will also need to squeeze the hair back up so the perm holds and the spirals are visible then let it dry. Using a good shampoo and conditioner really help too.

Unfortunately it could be a combination of a the shampoo, the brushing, the wetting, and maybe your friend didn't mix the solution correctly or leave it on long enough or maybe the product was old.

Do you have the box from the product? You could contact the company and see if they have any info for you.

Be nice to your hair going forward so you don't have other issues like brittleness or your hair falling out. Hair health is so important. Hope you can coax your curls with your fingers because it is probably best to avoid devices for a while also.

It's probably everything in one contributing. Use leave in treatments aimed at curly hair and use a super wide toothed comb with your hair.. and never when it's very wet
