What does a perm do to black people’s hair?
A relaxer, also known as a perm for Black hair, is a chemical treatment that straightens curly hair by breaking down the bonds in the hair shaft.
Do perms make your hair fall out?
Since perming is inherently a drying process, if done so incorrectly can result in damage to the strands of hair making them weak and brittle. This causes the strands to break, leaving thinning or bald patches. The good news is that this type of hair loss is temporary, and new strands will grow back in time.
Is it OK to wash permed hair everyday?
Cleaning your hair can keep your curls fresh and bouncy. But washing it too often can strip your already delicate hair of essential oils and make your perm relax faster. Treat your permed hair like silk or another delicate fabric: washing it once a week is enough to keep it clean and help maintain its beauty.
Can I sleep on my newly permed hair?
With a new perm, you can sleep completely. It will not harm the curls. If you sleep on it and it gets flat, just mist it with some water and crunch it and you will reactivate the curls. You can wet them in the first 48 hours, but you cannot wash them.
What should you not do after a perm?

Why is my perm not Curly?
The two main reasons for permed hair not being as curly as desired are, the perm rods used were too large in diameter and produced a wave rather than a curl. The other is that the perm was under processed (assuming your hair had the proper elasticity to be permed).
How do you sleep with a perm?
Sleep on a satin pillowcase instead to give your hair the freedom to move without damage. You could tie your hair up in a loose bun, braids, or do the plop method. To plop your hair, use a conditioner and wrap your hair up in a microfiber cloth. Then, plop the excess right on top of your head and secure it there!
Can I put mousse in my hair after a perm?
