I got a perm about 6 months ago. I didn't need it because my hair was really loosely curly (3b-3c) but my mom insisted it would make my life easier. Now I've grown out most of it and I noticed some of it is NAPPY. (For lack of a better word) and some is the same as before. I heard tho when u first start growing it out your hair comes back more tight than before. That did happen with my very first perm but not like this. Will I ever get my normal curls back now?

    You won't know your hair's true texture until all the perm ends are cut off. If you remember how your hair texture was as a child that helps. But even as we get older our hair's texture can change. I would just wait it out and embrace whatever you texture you might have. There's also something called "scab" hair which a lot of us on this fourm have experienced. I don't want to get into too much detail about that. Only thing I can suggest is deep conditioning often. If your hair is brittle or dry, keep it moisturized. Did you use heat when you didn't get a relaxer for 6 months? If so, heat can alter your natural curl pattern. It can make your hair texture looser.

    I would just wait it out and see how your progresses over time. Curl pattern shouldn't be your make focus. Just deep condition and keep the natural and remaining relaxed ends hydrated. It may take months to see your true texture
