Questions and Answers

Does washing chemical off with shampoo instead of neutraliser affect permed hair?


Yes, it might affect it, especially if a neutralizer is specifically prescribed for you to use. This is even more the case if you are using a rather strong shampoo, or those types of shampoos which are not intended for chemical treated hair. What it might do is wash off the chemicals completely which may end up removing the perm of your hair. If you have to use shampoo instead of a neutralizer, make sure that it's at least mild enough. Baby shampoo may be your best choice for this.
