7 Bumps

Question for Black Women

Where I am from my parents and their generation are real strict after you have given birth. I have heard you can't sweep the floor for a certain amount of days, can't go out side until your six week is up. My question how long was it before you could put a perm in your head. I am in a desperate need of a perm.
