Repairing Damaged Hair

I permed my hair, right after I rinsed it jet black by myself for the first time. I didn't know that I was supposed to rinse my hair until all of the jet black was completely washed out. I semi-rinsed it and left half of the chemicals in my hair. 2 months later my hair is super dry, itchy, and slowly, but surely it is breaking off. What should I do to repair my hair to stop the itching and breakage?

Hair stylists will tell you to never perm your hair for a few weeks after coloring it. I can't remember, exactly how many weeks, but I know it is between three to six weeks. I used to color my own hair, but always went to a styling salon for my perms. Now I don't do either, because I have developed psoriasis on my scalp. You should probably consult a professional hair stylist, and you might have to get your hair cut really short in order to get rid of the damaged hair. Most of what I learned about things like this is from my sister who is a retired hair stylist and every now and then I question other hair stylists when I am getting a hair cut.


Also if a person is on certain medications that could change the effects of chemical hair processes. The same right before or after having a baby or surgery can affect things like that too. My sister was really fussy about things like that and whenever a new lady went to her salon and wanted a chemical process she questioned the lady about things like that. I found out all about this about a month before I had my second baby, I wanted her to put a perm in my hair and she wouldn't, explaining that I didn't know what, if any type of drugs I would have to have and she told me after delivery I should wait at least a month.
