Every single %#*@ time I try to do change something with my hair...it goes WRONG, TERRIBLY WRONG! I got a bad perm. I have no curls (none!) and my hair is so fried. It's so dry. What can I do? Old home remedies? Anything? What can I do????

I do home perms, did one a long time ago and it came out really nice. But when i did my last one several months ago it did the same thing as yours, it just screwed right up. There's a shampoo and conditioner by pantine pro-v that repairs up to 2 years of damage in about 1 month. I noticed a difference almost immediately. I still have to use a straightener to get it to look good but that doesn't last long, oh and i also use infuseum 23 repairing leave in conditioner, if you put it in when wet it works better than putting it in when your hair is dry because when it's dry it kind of makes it hard. hope this helps somewhat.

Well,you can do nothing but leave it alone.And you must use a fit hairconditioner while shampooing.When it becomes nearly normal,you may choose to have another perm.But remember,it must be long after your first perm.This time you should first tell your hairdresser that he must give you a perm you are satisfied with,if not,do it again until it's your ideal hairstyle.I have the same experience as yours.I just want to share my own ways of coping with this kind of problems.Hope it can be helpful to you.

This happened to me years ago, I only wanted a body wave and came out all frizzy, I just kept washing it and had to put big rollers in to straighten the friz, i guess you could go back and try and get it fixed up but would you trust her to touch your hair again I don't think I would in fact I have never been back to a hairdresser since...no more perms for me I use a hotrod....

You may get the damage repaired at a good hai clinic in your neighbourhood. The next key is to apply card that shall act as a conditioner.
