How did u keep ur permed ends from breaking off hardcore with the strong loc texture at the top?
I couldn't keep them from breaking off, but I was able to slow down the process. After all, my ends were permed and therefore, weaker than my natural hair. But I think the following things helped slow the process:
- I didn't wash my hair excessively - Only once or twice between retightenings.
- I NEVER used a curling iron or other heating implements, except for a bonnet dryer.
- I never lifted color out to lighten my hair.
- I continued to bind the permed ends very well and EVERYTIME I shampooed to avoid bunching. [You can loose 1/4 of your ends with one bad episode of bunching!]
But slowly losing the ends is unavoidable. When my hair was wet, you could really tell the difference between the roots and the straggly ends.
