Young people these days have become much more fashionable. Their clothes and hairstyles are unique. Unlike in the past, men and women alike seem to be enjoying perms and coloring their hair in a more generalized way, just as “Beckham hair” has become popular among men.
The number of middle-aged and older people allergic to brown hair seems to be decreasing, and while it is good to enjoy fashionable hairstyles with a sense of individuality, it is not advisable to go too far. No matter how good the chemicals are, perms and coloring are inevitably hard on the hair and skin with today’s technology. In some cases, this can promote hair loss, so care must be taken.
don’t perm too much!
The main component of hair consists of a hard protein called keratin. The cystine contained in this protein bonds with other cystines, creating a nail-like hardness. Therefore, breaking these bonds is what makes perms work.
It is reducing agents such as thioglycolic acid that break the fibrous connections between the cells. An oxidizing agent such as sodium bromate is then used to ensure that the shape of the curled lot remains. Damage such as cuticle peeling is inevitable as the liquid solution is allowed to penetrate into the interior of the hair. However, recently there are perm solutions that cause less damage, so if you are thinking about your hair, we recommend that you choose a hair salon that is particular about perm solutions. And avoid getting perms too often, at least two months apart. This is for the health of your hair.
Coloring is done in a less damaging way.
There are several ways to change the color of your hair, including
Dye sprayed on the surface of the hair, easily removed by shampooing
Those that gradually add color each time you wash your hair
Covers the surface of the hair with a colored film
Hair dye, bleach
An oxidizing agent that allows the hair dye to penetrate into the hair.
Hair dye and bleach may penetrate the scalp and damage hair matrix cells and hair papilla. When re-dyeing hair, leave an interval of at least one month.
Recently, perms and coloring can be easily done at home. We recommend that you always perform a patch test when you do it by yourself.
A test to check for skin irritation or allergic reactions. Apply the liquid to the inner side of the arm in the size of a penny, let it dry naturally, and leave it on for 24 hours to see how it reacts. If the skin becomes irritated or red, it is considered safe not to use the liquid.
