How to fix frizzy permed hair?

Instead of using a straightener to curl your hair, some people opt to do a perm because it is more lasting than curling which will relax on its own after a few hours or a day. It is a chemical treatment in which a perm solution is applied to your hair which will alter your hair structure to form a curl or wave. Perm is categorized into different types and one can choose what type of perm to get depending on your hair type and condition (damaged or not).

Why does Perm Hair get Frizzy?

It is usually frizzy because you washed your hair before the no-wash period is over and dried it using a towel, over-processing, or the curls are too tight. It is possible that you treated your curly or wavy hair the same way you used to treat your straight hair.
