Only two days?? Wow.

Answer #7

Yes…a huge waste of $100

Answer #8

Typically perms can last for about 4-6 months, but within 2 months of your perm, you may need to get a root perm because perms do not affect the new hair that grows. Perms also last longer in thin hair so if your hair is thick, the perm will not last as long.

Answer #15

Depending on the elasticity and porosity of your hair, it could last years in the hair. The only problem is regrowth. It all depends on the perm solution used, the time it is left on for, and the neutralizer. You can let a perm fall quickly, by taking time off the processing time. But you have to be careful not to over-process it or the hair could break. Previous colour and chemicals in the hair also contribute to the end result. You can’t let it process for as long as the MIs state if you have colour or bleach on your hair. Also, if you use a good shampoo it will last longer.

Answer #16

You should have complained, do you remember how long the hairdresser left the solution on for? 2 days.. that’s appalling.

She did everything right…my hair just wasn’t accepting of it
