Answer #2: No Madam C. J. Walker did not invent the perm. Infact, she did not like the use of chemical hair straighteners. Her main products were her vegetable shampoo, her "wonderful hair grower" (which contained sulphur and was used to heal dandruff and scalp disease) and glossine (which softened the hair and made it easier to comb). Other inventors developed chemical hair straighteners as early as the 1850s long before Madam Walker was born. An African American man named Garrett Morgan was one of the many people who experimented with chemical hair straighteners during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
