The truth about dread perms [28 Aug 2009|01:10pm]
[ mood | irate ]

Just wanted to give anyone out there who's considering a dread perm the heads up. I'm friends on facebook with a hair professional who is licensed to do dreads via the hair police methods. We were talking about their methods the other day, and she divulged to me that they are taught as standard practice to *deliberately* leave the perm solution on for way too long to over process and damage the hair. For a perm that normally calls for 20 minutes processing time, they are taught to leave it on for 30-45 minutes. Any hairdresser worth their salt knows you just do not DO that with perms, they are potentially damaging enough as is but to over process its BAD news, it will completely break down the protein bonds of the hair leaving it fragile and brittle, take away all it's elasticity, and it will start breaking off like nuts. I was appalled. I mean I knew dread perms could damage your hair, but I had no idea that was the *objective*.

Moral of the story - if you are considering getting dreads done, stay the hell away from dread perms, unless you LIKE the thought of having your dreads FALL OFF your head.
