even when i had a relaxer i permed my hair maybe 3x's a year and touched up the short edges around my face and the nape of my neck that would become freezy w/ new growth. i gave up my perm altogether because my hair was growing uneven and shedding and i wasn't sure why or what i was doing wrong. i stopped perming my hair about a year ago, started eating better, and taking hair, skin, and nail vitamins for about a lil over 4 mo now. YES I CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE!!! my hair evened up, it looks better and everything. the interesting thing is my hair never really needed a perm and it grows in dry waves like kelis but the freezy edges around my hairline are driving me nuts and it looks bad. right now the weather is very hot, humid, i am very active outdoors, and hair jell and hair softner (like carols daughter's hair butter) is not working on these rough edges. i have to wear my hair back cause i don't look w/ my hair down. i considered braids but with the way my hair is growing it might be a waste of money.
does anyone here perm their edges? thanks for your help
