The origins of the permanent came from the textile industry. The solution used to straighten wool fibers so they could be spun for clothing and other textiles was later introduced to the beauty market as a solution for curling the hair. By simply adding a cylinder shaped roller, the permanent was born.
The permanent or perm for short reconstructs the hair shaft by a chemical action. The perm solution softens the inner structure of the hair, so it can be easily molded to the shape of the roller. Second, the neutralizer re-bonds the internal structure of the hair.
There are varying types of results when receiving a perm. Curly or Spiral perms produce tight, spiral-shaped curls and usually looks better on longer hair types. Body waves produce looser curls and add volume and fullness to the hair. The tightness of the curls or waves depends on the shape and size of the roller the hair is wrapped around. When deciding on the type of curls you want; it's best to bring in a picture. Your stylist can then look at the type of hair you have and decide which size roller is best to use, along with which type of perm is best for your hair.
Ironically, permanents aren't permanent. Therefore, to enhance your perm and improve your chances of maintaining your hair's health, not to mention, save you money, there are certain tips to follow.
After getting a perm, always wait at least 48 hours before shampooing and conditioning
Have your hair trimmed frequently, at least every 6 to 8 weeks.
When the hair is wet, treat it delicately; use a wide-tooth comb; the hair is at its weakest form when wet; damage and breakage can occur more frequently when wet.
Use a diffuser attachment on your blow dryer or allow the hair to dry naturally. This encourages curl definition
Use a deep conditioner once a month that promotes elasticity.
Use a specially formulated shampoo for chemically treated hair or look for shampoos and conditioners that are moisturizing. Lack of moisture leads to hair breakage.
