“I need to get my hair done, my perm is growing out “

If you have relaxed your entire life like myself then you know that the “new growth” was a bad thing. It meant that your perm would no longer appear naturally from your roots. You wanted to have new growth straightened because you wanted your hair appear to be silky straight which was contrary to new growth. It would make your roots curly and puffy. Had I known all along that I had gorgeous long black curly hair I would have never touched a relaxer.

How to help it: Let it GROW!!! There are healthier ways to straighten your hair without aggressive chemicals. You could purchase a flat iron with intense heat and your hair will definitely straighten. Your curls maybe looser but no where near as damaged as when they are chemically induced.
