Default Perm over relaxed hair?

I relaxed my hair for the 1st time in 10 years. I wanted looser, more manageable curls. What I got instead was six inches cut off my hair, it looked so horrible. So now I have chin-length, wavy/curly/frizzy hair. It looks soooo messy.

So the relaxer was 6 weeks ago. I'm going to talk to my stylist, but has anyone here put a perm over their relaxed hair to make it curly/defined again? I just really hate my hair right now.

I figured. I'm just going to have to suck it up. Thank God my hair grows quickly. I guess the next question is what are good products to help with curl definition? I'm currently using Paul Mitchell Super Sculpt gel, which is medium hold. Maybe something with a stronger hold?

It could also cause hair loss - I would recommend deep conditioning and allow it to grow out, trimming the damaged hair until it is completely gone...

I just bought the Ouidad deep treatment. I read good things about it. Hopefully that will help... and I definitely don't want to lose any hair!

Thanks.

My stylist said we'd cut off enough hair that it should be ok to perm, but I'm not doing it. With the DT I already did, my hair is looking shiner and curlier. I am one happy chickie.
