Can you straighten hair that has a care free curl?

Hi,
I have been wearing a curly perm for 2 years now - and my hair is still breaking! I've tried Wave Nouveau and am now wearing a Ferm. I've had some great advice from this forum and now moisturise daily, co-wash once a week and deep condition once a week. The breakage is not as bad as  when I first got the curly perm. But since I have tried most things to eliminate the problem with limited success, I am now wondering if maybe my hairdresser is not applying the perm properly.
 
So...I live in North London in England. Does anyone have any recommendations for good hairdressers in London who really understand and can style black hair?
 
Thanks!

Hey,

Is your stylist applying the rearranger to the new growth only? If not, then you'll have breakage because your hair is being overprocessed. Make sure she is washing all the rearranger out. This is key!
Also, make sure that your stylist is respecting the time limits for each part of the process. If you have to ask her to and make sure you time it yourself as well. Ask her to make sure that she is applying the rearranger to your hair (new growth only) and not your scalp.
What about the neutaliser? Every rod must be saturated. I know this seems like a lot but I mean your stylist should know all this already. Just keep a closer eye on what he/she is doing or not doing.

HTH!

Thanks for your reply, it was really helpful. I`m starting to think that maybe my hair just does not agree with the curly perm chemicals though Unhappy
 
Do you know if it is possible to get a texturiser on top of a curly perm?

Hi,
I thought I'd post an update on my curly perm breakage saga in case it helps anybody:
 
Basically, I've had a Ferm curly perm for nearly two years and ever since I got it, my hair has been breaking like crazy. I've always had lots of very thick hair so this was really distressing for me. I tried everything to solve the problem - co-washing, moisturising more regularly, protein treatments, deep conditioning treatments, the works. Eventually I changed my hairdresser - turns out my split ends were really really bad, so bad that the hair was splitting all the way up the shaft and that made it even more fragile and prone to breaking. I had two inches cut off and was recommended a new moisturising, curl activator and now it is much better.
 
I also found a great hairdresser in North London, please PM me if you would like their details.
 
Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for all the help I received on these boards. In a way, the breakage was a blessing because it meant I learnt lots of great tops for looking after my hair!

Hello All,

Here's an FYI if you do get a Wave Nouveau or a Hawaiian Silky Curl: Do not use a neutralizing shampoo under any circumstances!

I got my curly perm in early January and really was enjoying it.  I waited approximately three weeks to wash it initially.  I used a neutralizing shampoo (because I'm certain that's what my stylist recommended), and almost literally, I washed the curls right out of my hair. 

My hair became a super soft short afro with faint curls here and there, so I wore it moisturized and picked out (dry look) for about five weeks following that fiasco. 

I got my hair done again last night (Hawaiian Silky).  Since I had an appreciable amount of new growth, I asked for larger rods.  To me, larger rods give more of a natural look.  Although I respect what a curly perm does for the sistahs in terms of manageability and styling options, I felt a bit self-conscious with the "jherri curl" ringlets that have the negative stigma attached. 

Any hoo, got lots of compliments leaving choir rehearsal last night so I think I'll like the looser wave this time. 

BTW, I was told to use a ph balancing shampoo and conditioner on my style.  I think Porosity Control products are awesome, and recommend them highly. 

Hope this helped someone.
