Yes, permed hair requires special care. That is because when hair is permed, it is treated with special chemicals to permanently add or remove curl. Perming strips off the natural oils and moisture of your hair. The harsh chemicals used in the perm solution makes hair porous which means hair absorbs and loses moisture very quickly. Pollution, sunrays and air can dry out your hair and make it brittle. Protect your hair from the hot sun and be sure to use conditioners that nourish your hair. Do not get your hair permed often as overexposure to harsh chemicals can permanently damage your hair. Consider getting touch-ups whenever required instead of getting a complete perm.
