I regret perming my hair...

Ugh... I really miss my natural hair. I got permed April 9th. THE BIGGEST MISTAKE!!! I got talked into getting one, especially since I'd always rock weaves people figured I should get a perm. I was doing fine without a perm. I'm miserable. I'm weaved up right now and the last perm I got was a little over a month ago. I'm now torn between growing it out or re-perming and waiting until next year (when I grad. and move to L.A.) to grow it out. I know when transitioning your hair could break off a ton, and I fear that. I know I'll have to eventually cut it off ughhh. See this is why I should have ran out that salon chair . I shouldn't have got a perm to please someone else. I don't care for my permed hair (as in I don't like it). I shed alot. I can't stand the thinness. What do you think I should do? I'm stuck I need help...

Confused...

i've never had a perm so I can't fully understand your problem but i can say that growing out your natural hair is going to promote healthy hair. If you decided to transition it will be hard, but it will be worth it in the end.if you haven't already just do some research on sites like curlynikki, moptopmaven and fotki. This can help you get started with advice from ppl who have had perms. I hope this was helpful and goodluck!

I'm glad I stopped perming my hair. It's a lot healthier. If I want to wear it strait, I just flat iron it.

Transitioning isn't necessarily hard work. I started when I was 14 and because of my 4b texture I really couldn't bun and go, but protective styles like individual braids with extension, bantu knot outs, cornrows, and braid outs saved me. The year that I transitioned flew by really fast. So good luck on your natural hair journey! I always love it when I see natural teen.( btw we're about the same age. I'll be 16 in a month)
