Perming hair changes the texture of your hair by using waving or straightening lotions. These chemicals break the natural bonds in the hair shaft to allow your hair stylist to form your hair into its new texture whether curly, wavy or straight. The strong chemicals used to break these bonds strip the hair's cuticle, leaving it drier and more prone to frizz after processing. Take special care of permed hair in order to maintain shiny, healthy hair.
Wash and condition your hair using shampoo and conditioner designed specifically for permed or color-treated hair. These products nourish your hair and return moisture to the shaft, which will help to reduce frizz and improve the texture of your hair.
Allow your hair to air dry or, if not possible, dry your hair using a hair dryer with a diffuser nozzle. Heat styling dries out your hair and causes damage, which leads to frizz and breakage. If you absolutely need to blow-dry your hair, use a diffuser to spread the heat and reduce damage.
Apply a smoothing serum to your dry hair. Place a small amount of serum in your palm, and then run your hands and fingers through your hair. Silicone-based serums will smooth the hair's cuticle, increase the shine and reduce frizz.
Spread a deep-conditioning hair mask onto your hair once a week. After shampooing your hair, place a small amount of the product in your hand, and then spread the product from the roots of your hair to the tips. Select a product that contains keratin and protein to replace these proteins that were stripped from your hair during the perming process. Allow the mask to remain on your hair for 30 minutes before rinsing.
