After having a perm, your hair becomes dry and damaged. This is an experience that everyone has had. It is inevitable that hair gets damaged due to the nature of the chemicals used in perms. However, if you take proper care of your hair to minimize the damage, the perm will last longer.
Why is it damaged?
The reason why your hair becomes frizzy after a perm has something to do with how perms work.
Hair is supported from both sides by two pillars of protein. The reason why straight or frizzy hair cannot be changed in its natural state is because of the strong support of these two pillars.
Perms use one component to sever one of the pillars and straighten or straighten the habit. The two-component solution then reconnects the pillars. Whether temporarily or not, it breaks the cuticle and proteins that protect the hair, so the hair is damaged.
Why the bustle?
Damaged hair is dry and becomes dry and flaky. When hair is damaged, it is unable to retain adequate moisture, which evaporates rapidly. Hair has no self-healing properties, except at the roots. The further you go to the ends of the hair, the less moisture and nutrients are available to make the hair look shaggy and unruly.
Rinse and Treat
Which is more effective for flaky hair, rinsing or treatment? Rinses are applied to the hair to improve combing and also provide protection. They are like a coating material, so to speak, and only work on the surface of the hair.
Treatments, on the other hand, nourish the hair. They work not only on the surface but also on the inside of the hair to improve damage.
Don’t forget the treatments.
Always treat your hair after shampooing. Hair is very delicate, especially immediately after shampooing. By applying a thorough treatment, you can reduce the progression of hair damage.
Recently, there are no-rinse treatments available. Replenishing lost nutrients is a way to prevent hair damage.
If you continue to take care of your hair correctly, your hair will always live up to your expectations. You will notice that your hair will gradually return to its original state of suppleness and shine. It is fun to feel the improvement in both look and feel. Try to enjoy taking care of your hair after a perm every day.
