A hair question about a perm, What should i do?

I got a very curly perm about a year ago. The middle and bottom part of the hair is still very curly but the top part is starting to get poker straight again. Is there anyway to make the transition from curly hair to straight hair without cutting out any hair. Keep in mind my hair is past my shoulders in really good shape and I am a very busy mom so anything with too much work is out of the question, lol.

  • Your hair is growing out and unless you go with a new haircut or get the new growth permed again there isn't much you can do. I had a perm once and hated that in between stage. Now what I did do was hot roll my hair so it would look like it was supposed to be evenly curly. I don't know if you have tried that.

  • If you want all you hair a perm, spray the smelly stuff all over your hair and comb for about 30 minutes, rinse...that should get rid of all the curl!

  • There was something on Rachel Ray today that they said worked for that. It's part brush and have flat iron. It got good reviews. Look on her website and see if they show you the name of it.
