It's not permanent

Today, I have really big insecurities, and the ONLY thing I like about myself is my hair. I got it permed yesterday, and just now I used shampoo on it, and my hair is falling out. All 12” of it. FML

Didn’t your stylist told you weren’t supposed to wash within 48 hrs?

The best way to deal with a tramatic hair situation is to embrace it. I have needed to go from long and curly to almost a pixie cut due to stylists mistakes. You can learn new style techniques while your hair recovers. Ask stylists for suggestions or search YouTube. About the perm though...I have no experience with that! Good Luck OP!

Aw, don't worry. You probably have a beautiful skull!

Yeah! Haven’t you ever seen “Legally Blonde”?! Everyone knows that

Doesn’t that just ruin the perm, not make your hair fall out?

if done correct, you no longer have to wait. also, it would only ruin the perm.

That shouldn't make their hair fall out, just loosens the curl...

Being bald isn't too bad, you know!

You aren't supposed to use shampoo for a few days after.

How did your stylist not tell you to not wash (or even get your hair wet) for AT LEAST 48 hours?

Washing it earlier has nothing to do with it falling out

So I've never gotten a perm and I even know you are not supposed to wash your hair that soon. Sorry OP.

Whether she washed it or not it shouldn’t have fallen out.... Your stylist set you up lol

I'm a hairdresser, that should not happen! Go back to that salon and show them! That is not okay! Even if you happened to wash it too soon, that should only make it less curly, not fall out, that sounds like chemical damage! Please go back to them! And if they won't help you, go some where else!

Have you had any previous colour work done on your hair? Any bleach? Perms can’t be done on any hair that’s previously been bleached (even if it’s from 2 years ago or had colour put over it)
