I had my hair permed yesterday for the first time ever, my 48 hours are up tomorrow and I can wash it (though was advised to leave until Sunday if possible, so 72h).
My question is - how much should the curl 'fall down' during this time I am waiting to wash it? My hair seems to have returned to a slightly bedraggled version of its natural look! Is it going to be all fine and dandy when I've washed it, or is this it now
Ah yes id forgotten about this one well my hair is a total flop, I dunno what has gone wrong but its terrible...i will update with a picture tomorrow after washing my hair, but basically for the last few days I've been blow drying it straight with my normal brush and it looks just like my before picture but slightly thicker
When left to dry naturally its a frigging mess tbh and I cant do anything with it.
Thanks for the update. I had a very similar thing happen to me many years ago after a perm. I also ended up drying it straight nearly everyday as it was so bad. It did make it seem thicker, but it also trashed the condition of my hair doing that (I lost about 5 inches or so from it gradually just snapping I think), so make sure you condition lots! Have you been back to the hairdressers?
