The Dangerous Effects of Perms (Hair Relaxers)

painful_perms4blacksBy Pam Jefferson

Perming hair has been around since 1905. That means women, though able to beautify themselves, have also subjected themselves to the harm that comes with perming. They’ve been doing it for over a century. Hair perming involves the use of chemicals or heat applied to hair. Basically, perm works when the hair is rolled and then heat or chemicals are applied. Yes, it may be a good way of getting fuller or lush curls, but perming can also severely damage hair. The use of hydrogen peroxide can also result to serious burns.

Moreover, badly done perms can have hair lose its normal elasticity, making it brittle, fragile, and prone to breakage.  Other side effects of perm include scalp damage, which can include redness, itching, burning, and peeling. Perm can also stop hair from regrowing, which means some chemicals inhibit new hair growth. Perm can also alter hair’s texture, making it frizzy. Baldness can also result as hair is pulled and wrapped onto curlers, which can tear the hair from its roots.

Other bad effects of perm include:

Scalp Damage

  • Although the permanent solution is applied to the hair, some may inadvertently be applied to your scalp through sloppy application or by accident. This solution is made up of a highly potent ammonium thioglycolate chemical solution, which can be irritating to some users, and cause itching, redness, burning and peeling.

Hair Damage

  • Because of the strength of the ammonium thioglycolate solution, many find their hair texture changed after using it. Ammonium thioglycolate can dry out the hair, leaving it brittle and more susceptible to breakage. The only way to fix this problem is to grow the hair out and cut off the damaged portion.

Lack of Hair Regrowth

  • Some perm users realize that their hair is cracked and damaged, and then wait patiently for new hair regrowth to replace the damaged hair. However, some may find that the chemicals have actually inhibited new hair growth.

Texture Change

  • While a perm seeks to change the texture of your hair by causing it to go from straight to curly, you may find that this texture change is permanent, rather than lasting a few months, as most perms are supposed to. Some users find that they went from straight hair, to permed hair, to permanently frizzy hair after the perm. If you don’t mind your hair’s texture as it is, choose another, less severe way to curl your hair, such as a curling iron or three barrel waver.

Pain

  • Some perm users may find that heading to the salon to receive a perm can be a painful procedure. Not only can the ammonium thioglycolate solution burn the scalp during application, but the hair has to be tightly wound in curlers when it’s been applied. This can be a painful process, as the curlers must be placed tightly to the scalp, and can cause pulling or tearing of the hair which makes the pain even worst.

Here’s a video from Dr Akilah explaining why she stopped applying chemicals to her hair after visiting a morgue while working as a police officer.

Hair Growth Testimony – Hair Growth & Repair Supplement

Hair Growth and Repair Supplement

Dr Akilah El please post this on your testimony page. I want to sing praises for your Hair Growth & Repair Supplement. People need to know that your herbs WORK!!!!

Back in 2009, the hair at the nape of my neck and on the left-hand side of my head starting breaking off really badly. In all the years of relaxing and treating my hair, this was the first time I had seen it get this bad. At first, I brushed it off as stress because I hated my job at the time and was finding it extremely difficult to find work elsewhere. The more I brushed it off the worst my hair would get.

My hairdresser suggested that I put a few tracks of weave in my hair and leave it alone. I wasn’t thrilled with idea at first because I hated the idea of having a weave in my hair but I did it any way and the hair grew a little but it wasn’t enough to make a difference I looked without the weave. So I ended up taking it out after a month when I washed my hair and the weave got matted and tangled up in my comb. I was getting more and more depressed every time I looked at the patch in the mirror. My hairdresser didn’t know what to do either.

Finally, I started to do a search on “hair growth” on the internet and came across your website. I saw your pictures and was amazed that your hair grew that long from your herbal supplement. I also brushed your results off because your hair was natural but then I thought about other women who have natural hair who have problems with hair growth like me so out of curiosity I decided to buy a bottle and see for myself.

Hair Growth and Repair Supplement - THAT WORKS

It wasn’t until 2 1/2 weeks of taking your herbs that I realized just how much hair had grown on my HEAD!!!! It was around 1 1/2 inches longer and it was thicker! I couldn’t believe it. I can’t tell you how many times I kept looking in the mirror amazed at the health state of my hair. The hair around my edges grew back to normal and everything. Even today I still look in the mirror amazed and very pleased with what I see. When I finished the first bottle I brought 3 more and once I ran out I decided to stop because my hair was back to its normal state. BUT TO MY SURPISE MY HAIR STILL CONTINUED TO GROW!!!!!!!!! I haven’t taken your herbs in over 7 months and my hair is still growing like wild fire. I am truly amazed.

Your Health Growth and Repair Supplement really work! I am so glad I gave you a try. This was probably one of the best things I did for myself in years!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to give my many thanks and praise to your hair herbal supplement. I have told my family and friends all about your hair herbs. I believe in passing on Good News!!!!

Continue keeping up the good work.

May God Bless You,

Josephine Grady
