Hey there! Sounds like you didn't get those roots like you said. I agree that you need some conditioning going on.
Since your straight, take a few dabs of your moisturizer that you usually use and run it through your hair. If you have a blowdryer with the comb attachment, you could blowdry your already straight dry hair. The moisturizer is going to make your hair revert more especially if its water based, so blowdrying it will help with getting rid of the waves. If you don't have a blowdryer with the attachment, if your one of those ladies that can get their roots straight with the flatiron- go for it!
Please be more careful next time with doing this perm yourself! Drinking perm and slathering indiscriminate amounts in ya head sounds all types of dangerous. HTH and GL!
