Transitioning without the chop - HELP!
It has been about 9 months since my last perm & I feel so much relief from not having so much chemicals on my hair. I colored my hair 6 months in to check the hair growth in my process. After reading everyone elses blogs and posts about transitioning without the big chop, I am wondering if I am putting too much heat on my head. I wash/blow dry and straighten my hair once a week in the winter, and every 2 weeks in the summer. Every post that I have read states to NOT put so much heat on your head, but I have doing this for the past 9 months! Will this effect my hair in the future? I am afraid to leave it curly until I cut off the rest of the permed hair because I feel like it would just look funny (I love the texture of my curled hair, but feel like I have to straighten it because the rest of my hair is strait). I do not plan on cutting the rest of my permed hair off until May 2011.
