What To Remember While And After Perming?

• Do not color your hair before you perm it. Perming should be followed by coloring and not the other way round as a color before would fade with the perm.
• If your scalp starts to itch severely or you have a burning sensation after application of perm solution, wash it off with the neutralizing shampoo immediately.
• You must not shampoo for two or three days after your perm session. Avoid coloring your hair just after perming. It would be wise for you to wait a fortnight!
• After a few days, when you start shampooing all over again, use a shampoo with moisturizer especially formulated for permed hair.
• If you are not so confident about perming your hair at home, take the help of an experienced professional at a well-known salon.
