Hair looks its best when it is glossy, shiny and moisturized. Unfortunately, many hair products and processes tend to damage hair shafts, leaving many with frizzy, frazzled hair. If you got a perm treatment and quickly fell out of love with it, you might be looking for solutions to create smoother, straighter locks without causing further dryness. Moisturizers are your best bet to add luster and soften the intensity of a perm without causing damage.
Remove the skin and pit of an avocado and mash up the fruit of the avocado until smooth. Mix in about 2 tablespoons of canola or olive oil.
Apply the mixture to your hair from root to tip. Ensure you are leaning over a bathtub, sink or a plastic bag so that any stray bits of the hair mask are contained.
Clip up your hair once the mask has covered every single strand of hair from root to tip and place the shower cap over your head. Allow the mask to soak into the hair for at least 30 minutes or up to an hour.
Rinse out the hair mask using a gentle shampoo for chemically treated hair, and finish with a deep, cream conditioner. Allow the conditioner to sit in hair for at least five minutes before rinsing.
Allow hair to air dry. Repeat this hair treatment every week for at least a month as your perm grows out.
