Remedy for Hair Damaged by a Perm

A few days ago my friend permed my hair because I missed my long wavy hair. I have super short straight hair that has never been permed or anything of the like. She accidentally used a super perm. Now my hair went from my natural light brown to a dirty blond. I haven't dyed or bleached my hair since long before I cut it all off a year ago. The only thing I've done to it was use a homemade toner to make it a bit lighter. Some of it turned white and fell out. Lots of it is really frizzy and light colored. I tried covering my head in argon and coconut oils for about 6 hours or so, deep conditioning, air drying, and finger combing instead of brushing. My hair is only about 6 inches long, I really don't want to go bald. Any cheap and easy remedies for this broke college student?
