Will my hair go back to straight after a perm?
Unlike hair dyes, perms can’t wash out. It will stay curly even after you’ve washed and dried your hair! Even though your hair is curly, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible to do any of the hairstyles you used to do before the treatment. You can still straighten, curl, and style permed hair just like you would normally.

Why is my hair still straight after perm?
The two main reasons for permed hair not being as curly as desired are, the perm rods used were too large in diameter and produced a wave rather than a curl. The other is that the perm was under processed (assuming your hair had the proper elasticity to be permed).
Why did my hair go straight after a perm?
It could be that the rods weren’t wrapped correctly or w/ enough tension, the perm solution may not have been left on long enough, the hair possibly wasn’t rinsed well, or wasn’t blotted well enough before the neutralizer was applied, the neutralizer wasn’t left on long enough, or it wasn’t rinsed out well enough.
How often can I perm my hair?
The normal time period between perms is three to four months for short to medium-length hair as long as hair is trimmed or cut two or three times within this period. Your stylist can help you make this decision.
