My daughter spent all of two weeks with my mom and now she has a perm! It is awful! My daughters hair was growing beautifully beyond shoulder length. She was so excited, as she was with this perm, she could really see the length. However, now her hair is extremely thin and I am afraid of what is going to happen if I do not continue in this process of perming. Her natural hair was wavy considered "good hair", my mom wanted the curl out, she wanted the straight look. She didn't even ask. SO heat and a perm done by the dominicans none the less! Any way to strip a perm? what do I do now? I do not have a perm or use heat on my hair either.

Avoid using heat like the plague!! It's going to take time and tender-loving-care to get your daughter's hair back to a healthy state. Follow the hair care advice on this website, grow her hair out and just cut off the relaxed portion when her natural hair reaches a nice length. Your daughter sounds like she has my hair type. I've never used a relaxer, but I've just discovered a gradual relaxer called Curlaway. It doesn't have any harsh chemicals and is a nice alternative to relaxing. I mainly use it when my edges get frizzy. It works, but it takes a while. You might want to hold off on trying this product until your daughters hair is healthy again. Hope this advice helps! Smile

Hi mariomagdal

For the mean time how about things like flat twist and shirley temple curls. I know if somebody did that me I would be very upset. Because I am not natural but my daughter is. We will always want the best for our kids no matter what. Crying or Very sad

wow, what a mum! I would suggest taking advantage of her hair'scurrent texture and give your daughter cute hairstyles like: spiral curls, a wavy look, long french braids, e.t.c.

And her hair will grow. Gradually cut it off to grow out the relaxer, but make sure you dont leave her with short hair! Its hard enough for our children to cope with having different hair, as long as it is long she should love it. Children often tease and might call her a boy, makingher feel like her hair is'nt beautiful! So be careful, remember to keep her feeling proud.

Thanks for the suggestions. My daughter is very happy with her new growth and I have been very diligent with the extra care of her hair. You ladies have been very encouraging.

No problem. I wash her hair weekly with the groganics shampoo and conditioner shown in the photo. I also deep condition with ORS Mayonaise protein conditioner. I leave that on for at least an hour under a plastic cap. I rinse with cool water. I then comb through with wide tooth comb. I use a really absorbant towel to towel dry. I oil her scalp with the Sulu Max Gro, and massage that in with my fingertips directly on the scalp, I read somewhere that rubbing the hair together is not good, so I manipulate her hair as little as possible. I massage for at least 5 min. The Sulu Max Gro needs to be activated as does any growth aide. I seal her hair while braiding with the groganics hair grease, not on the scalp but the hair, my idea is it helps the wet hair hold better, her hair is really soft. I use non-damaging rubberbands on the ends of hair to keep braids together. Her hair is always air dried. I keep her hair in braids during the week, and pony tails on weekend for church. Usually the hair washing is Sunday evening as we prepare for the new school week. I never use any heat on her hair. For pony tail holders, I search high and low for the ones without the metal in the middle. If I have to use one with metal in the middle, then I secure the hair with non-damaging rubberband first, then use the pony holder very loosely on top of that.

I oil her scalp nightly with the Sulu Max Gro. I massage the parted sections, she loves this and usually falls asleep before I am done. I place a plastic cap on her hair and secure it with a band because her head is so small, then I put a silk cap on top of that. This mimmicks the bagging method and really keeps her hair moist. In the morning it is beautiful! (the plastic cap protects my sheets, but sometimes her hair is so moist it feels damp)

I hope I have been helpful. Any questions ask anytime. I do not mind. I wish you much happy hair growing!

Awww thanks soooooo much! I'm going to try and locate the groganics products and order the sulu max on line I guess. Where were u able to pruchase the groganics on line or like a beauty supply store? Also is it a detangler? If not what do you do for the tangles? Well I'm so anxious to get started and to get my babygirl feelings bck up. Once again Thanks for your help!

You can get groganics @ www.groganics.com, and sulu max @ www.suluhair.com

The groganics products are really good. I have never had to use a detangler. If I had to use one, I guess I would use Cowboy Magic detangler. This one you will have to search online for, perhaps if you google it. It is pricey, but really awesome! I have used it on my own hair. Especially the last time I was sick and really did nothing to my hair, it was a real mess, but Cowboy Magic really did the job. I did not loose one single hair! It works on both dry and wet hair.

Otherwise, I suggest using a really big wide tooth comb and try combing through with the conditioner on, that may minimize the tangles. I usually do that with mine and my daughters hair.
