Does perming hair have any disadvantages?

Perming your hair for those glamourous curls may sound tempting, but the fact of the matter is that it calls for hair damage if not done with additional care. If you must perm, apply a perming solution or hair care cream all over your hair.

Permed hair requires additional care because when you perm your hair, you add curl and body to your hair by using chemicals. The harsh chemicals in perm solution damage your hair and make it porous making it prone to dryness and frizz. Permed hair gets tangled and matted very easily. Pollution, the sun and harsh wind can play havoc with your permed hair. Exposure to intense sun and strong winds can also dry out your hair and make it brittle. Your dry and porous hair becomes prone to split ends and breakage.
