How long do I have to wait after a perm to wash my hair?

I know that you should wait at least 24 hours until you wash it, but what about just wetting it? Is it okay as long as I do not shampoo or condition it?

  1. no your not allowed to wet or wash your hair for a day or else you will ruin your perm, if its a straight perm then you cannot fix your hair either until a day or two good luck

  2. For best result, I think you should wait for 2 days until you wash it. It’s still the same thing weather you just wetting your hair or use shampoo. It will still damage your hair texture after a perm or curl your become a wacko. So, I suggest you do what your hair stylist have told you.

  3. Perms work by altering the chemical structure of the hair Which can then take up to two days to re-bond and harden. If the hair is washed during this time the perm can ‘drop’ and lead to frizz. I have heard that conditioning may be ok but definitely not within the first hours shampooing 48th Personally, I have never tried wetting my hair within the first 48 hours and would advise against it.

  4. I’m a licensed cosmetologist. The answer is 48 hours. Do not blow or flat iron style for 48 hours either. It’ll loosen the curl pattern.

  5. An remarkable share, I just given this onto a colleague who was undertaking a bit evaluation on this. And he actually purchased me breakfast simply because I located it for him.. smile. So allow me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to talk about this, I feel strongly about this and enjoy studying much more on this topic. If attainable, when you become expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more specifics? It really is extremely beneficial for me. Large thumb up for this weblog publish! Anyhow, how did you grow to be so expert such as this ?
