    Theres a pink conditioner that avon sell, cant remeber the name sorry, but it goes on damp hair & you leave it on. Makes your hair really soft.

    I had my hair permed and it looked terrible. I used to put some volumising mouse from avon on it. That mader it loads better. :)

    aaah! Buy a razor.

    My mum talked me into getting one when I was about 13 telling me it would "give my hair a natural wave". Hah! A few weeks of torturous (and deserved) teasing later, I went to the hairdressers and got rid of it all, my hair was seriously short, but anything was better than the frizzy mess.

    I have never seen a good perm. But I'm willing to concede that you could be the exception to the rule, so here you go:

    A perm damages your hair badly, makes it really dry so ordinary conditioners won't do the job. You need to do a weekly hot oil treatment, and invest in one of the more expensive conditioning treatments. A shampoo for permed and damaged hair will do, I hear tthe pantene one is quite good, but I've enver used it.

    Blowdry your hair gently on a low heat setting using a diffuser attachment, and like someone else said before me, use mouse.

    There's probably a lot better hair products out since I had my perm-disaster, so I'd have a look round Boots.
