(Sorry If Ive put this in the wrong section,I am a newbie here)
I am from London England,and recently after the last couple of perms I've had done I've Noticed dramatic Changes in my hair behaviour that I'm Very Worried about!!!
I've Basically been having my hair done with the Wave Nouveau System since I was about 19 and half, i'm 25 now and I've given my hair Mini breaks inbetween and at home treatments with a steam cap.
But after my most recent Perm and a few others,(This may sound gross),My Scalp Keeps Flaking say about a week or so after having it done...I know these flakes are not dandruff....because they are quite big...I dunno why this is happening but its a very undesirable symptom I've been experiencing which also comes with a very itchy Scalp...I'll flake and comb them out but they come back and only seem to settle if I wash my hair or when the perm becomes older...Which obviously will shorten the lifespan of the perm and ruins the curl pattern!! Its werid as I get them most of the time but not after every perm.... I was thinking it might be the result of a surface burn? or a minor allergic reaction?..but I am still not sure!!!
I Was Thinking to change the brand I'm Using?.....
Could anyone suggest a reason as to why I could be experiencing this????..Has anyone had this also?..what did you do to combat this?...
Apart from this i've started noticed quite serve damage...as at the front a lil has broken off very short and at a few small sites within my hair....plus my hair keeps shredding even after a Thorough comb and brush out!...I've Kept the scalp moist But to find no joy....its very worrying as I'm scared I might end up bald!!!....or soon start to find..patches of missing hair!!!
I'm not sure what to do...apart from wash my hair again...to save the remaining hair!!..I'm thinking if i washed it sooner it might have prevented some hair loss!!
This has happened before and it was worst and only seemed to settle after washing but as I've said If i do so, it will dry it out and shorten the lifespan of the perm!...
Can anyone suggest why this could be happening?...any suggestions advice??..Has this happened to you?... your thoughts are deeply appreciated!...as I really am clueless on what to do and to keep trying and erroring things... my hair is basically suffering the wrong choices......
