Which is easier on my hair, perming it or curling it daily? I curl it with an iron every day, but I’m worried that it will still be very damaged. So I am wondering if perms are better. I had a perm before and it became very dry, so I’m a little reluctant to have a perm. ……
Both iron and perm are hard on the hair.
Many respondents said that both curling with an iron and perms are hard on the hair.
The iron uses heat, which causes the proteins in the hair to metamorphose and become damaged. The perms vary greatly depending on how they are applied and the chemicals used, but when the chemicals are used, it is hard on the hair. I try to minimize the pain by applying treatments and using different chemicals. (Hyogo Prefecture/Mikage Schlussel)
The iron has a beautiful finish. However, care is necessary as it is very damaging.

I think it looks better if you curl your hair every day,” said one respondent. However, it depends on how you do it, but I think it hurts more if you use the iron every day. (SALON DE LUNA, Owada, Osaka)

Perms are easy. First, have your hair looked at at a hair salon.
The advantage of perms is that they are easy to care for. Many respondents said that they prefer the iron for the finish, but it is very attractive that it lasts longer once it is applied. Many respondents said that perms sometimes cause less damage.
Be sure to check the condition of your hair before applying a perm. If your hair is already damaged, the damage will be greater.
It is better to get a perm to make it easier to take care of. If you use an iron the wrong way, it can really damage your hair. It’s also hard to curl your hair every morning.
If you are thinking, “I will never use an iron again after having a perm! I think it is less damaging to have a perm if you are thinking, “I will never use an iron again after having a perm! However, I think you are curling your hair with the heat of an iron now, so a perm may easily make it look dry. I think it would look better if you apply a non-drying treatment every day and curl it with an iron. (rocca hair innovation, Inage, Chiba)
“You say you curl your hair every day, but I don’t think perms will do much damage to your hair if it is in its natural state. If your hair is colored or if you have a straight perm, you should stop curling and perm your hair. It is very damaging. Show your hair stylist the condition of your hair and discuss it with her.” (Tokyo/Ginza Hair Room)
