Ladies can you recommend a perm that won't dry out my friend's hair. She also has a bald spot that she messes with. She gets a perm every 7 weeks. Her hair stylist puts a procclaim in her hair and doesn't overlap the perm. She went to a trichologist who eaximned her scalp. She said the perm was drying her scalp. She said it was a frrm alapecia (sp). She recommended a $95 perm that she gets from France. The trichologist says she will apply the perm. Recommended not to do sit under hood dryers because they dry out the hair. She said she will blow dry because it is faster and less drying. No protein treatments becuase it dries out the hair. I told her she needs to just come here but she don't want to listen. She promises to finally check out the thread. I need my experts to chime in.
