Perming

What is a perm?

A perm is a process where your hairstylist treats your hair with a chemical to alter the structure and permanently wave or curl your hair.  A perm will last approximately 6 months if your home care regimen supports the perm and your hair.  

Here are some red flags to look for if you are thinking about getting a perm:

  • Perms for Highlighted Hair. If your hair is highlighted, perming will most likely not be in your best interest.  Especially if you have a lot of highlights.  The reason is because the chemicals in the perm do not necessarily mix well with bleach or lightener.  
  • Perms for Dry Hair.  If your hair is dry or already damaged, then it definitely would not be wise to apply a perming solution over the top of that.  This will result in more damage, and hair that is completely stripped of moisture.
  • Perms for Short Layers. Short layers can be tricky with perming.  There is a fine line between creating the perfect texture and permed curls when it comes to short layers.  If the rod is too big, there will be no curl pattern at all, on the other hand if it is too small, then your curls will be super tight.

How long does a perm last?

First and foremost, when you decide to get a perm, you should prepare to be at the salon for at least two and a half hours. After you get a perm, how long it lasts depends mainly on how long your hair is. For short, often-cut hair, it can last at least three to four months. If you have really long hair it is even better. The roots drop on the head and then they just have the wave at the ends. That can last from six months to eight months.

Perms dos and donts?

  • Don’t use brushes, only wide -tooth combs
  • Do use shampoo and conditioners that contain humectants and emollients.
  • Do let your hair air-dry
  • Do comb permed hair when you have conditioner in your hair after towel dry gently, and    leave it alone

Preparing for perms

In order to prepare for a straight perm, wait at least two days after your last shampoo to apply the perm solution. This is because your hair will be coated in its natural oils, protecting it from damage. It’s imperative that you read the directions that come with your kit thoroughly. You’re giving yourself a perm without the rollers, so the times on the box are the times you should stick to. You risk damaging your hair otherwise. You’ll need an old towel, clothes you don’t mind messing up, vaseline, a wide-toothed comb, gloves (plastic or rubber), a perm kit, flat clips (optional,) and shampoo and conditioner

After care

You should wait 48 hours to wash your hair after receiving a perm.  If you wash your hair before the recommended 48 hours, you could run the risk of losing some of the curl.Getting a perm can result in making your hair feel more dry and lose hydration.  That is why it is very important to be using the right at home care. Our Fanola shampoo and conditioners are the perfect everyday products for your newly permed hair.  

Our hair mask is another must have for caring for a perm.  This is a deep conditioner that can be used once a week or once a month depending how much your hair needs.  Finally, our oils and serums will become your hair’s best friend.
