Katie asks:
I had a perm stating that I wanted body and a little curl. I informed the Salon that I had a perm 8-9 months ago, and that my curled easy and that it was coloured treated. Well, for the first time in my life my hair is straight and damaged. The perm was Redken. What happened?

I would recommend going back to the salon that provided the service for you and making them aware of the problem.

It could be down to several issues ...More >

•Development time not long enough or incorrect allocation of development time and incorrect neutralization process.

•Because your hair is colour treated then the perming solution used may not have been the correct one for your hair? And may not have had the full development time required to give the desired result.

Either way your best option is to go back to where you had your perming service done and show them your hair and explain your feelings over the result and your hair condition.

Diane asks:
I'm a 58-year old Caucasion woman with what one stylist once called "perm-resistant" hair. Does such hair exist? My current stylist does a really great job with the cut I prefer - layered, slightly below ear-length. He will re-perm only once every four months, though, and unfortunately the perms usually last only about two months. At $100 per cut-perm and $30 for any in-between trims I can no longer afford this. I read that after shampooing permed hair, waiting five minutes and then rinsing it with diluted Epson salts will help hold the curl. True? Any other ideas for extending the life of the average perm?

Hi Diane
It sounds to me that your re-perming over another perm each time your doing it that might be the problem if it a question of the $ amount there are lots of great hair cuts out there that have texture that will give body to your hair along with making it affordable for you. If you’re happy with the way your hairdresser cuts your hair talk to him, take in photo's of looks you like.

Alison asks:
Why is my hair not growing? I do use straighteners but I do not use them all the time. Please can you help?

I have news for you. Almost everyones hair grows every day on any part of their body. All at different paces, some fine, some thick etc. It would seem like you are very focused on your hair each day and looking for visible signs of additional length. It takes approximately 6 weeks for your hair to grow between 1cm - 2cm so any visible difference will take at least 6-9 months.

Using straighteners every day without proper protection can also damage the outer hair shaft which might slow down the growing process. There could also be a deficiency in minerals that help stimulate the hair follicles. Most of the chemists have minerals specifically designed for hair and nails. It will usually take about 6 months for you to see any real difference.
