How do I keep my permed hair curly?
If you must, don’t go any further than simply scrunching the hair with your fingers to set your curls. While your hair is in an adjustment phase, you don’t want to use any sort of hairbrush, but instead finger-comb your curls or if absolutely necessary, use a wide-tooth comb in the shower with lots of conditioner.
How do you wash permed curly hair?

How often should you wash curly permed hair?
For at least two weeks following your perm don’t be tempted to colour or highlight your hair – additional chemical treatment may stress and break hair strands. Treat your permed hair gently – washing just once a week with warm water is perfectly adequate.
Will my perm get curlier after I wash it?
Despite some theories flying around online about better defining your curls, getting curlier hair after washing is not only inconsistent in outcome but also highly dependent on your hair’s condition and health. If your chemically permed hair curls more after washing, it’s temporary.
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.
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).
Can I condition my permed hair everyday?
Condition regularly. Although some think that conditioner can relax your perm, it’s actually a myth. Conditioner formulated for permed hair will restore moisture and luster to your locks, keep your hair soft, and make your perm last longer. It also helps detangle curls.
Can I put mousse in my hair after a perm?
Yes, you can put mousse in your hair after perming it, but you should use an alcohol-free and silicon-free mousse. Also, the fewer chemical products you use on your perm, the longer the perm will last.
Is it okay to wet curly hair everyday?
A good rule of thumb: If your curls feel dry, try washing less frequently. Washing your curls everyday can remove the natural oils of your curls and makes it difficult to retain moisture. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wet your hair. “Rinse and condition more often; shampoo less,” Hallman advises.
What happens if you wash permed hair too early?
The hair becomes fragile and requires proper care to stay healthy and to keep the shape the perm gives it. Any harmful impact should be avoided within the next two days, including the washing.
