In order to achieve desired hairstyles, digital perms are now completely standard on the menu because “perms are firmly applied and last longer” and “styling is hassle-free,” but what about conventional perms?
There are some types of perms that are suitable and unsuitable for your hair. Let’s find out which type of perm is best suited for your hair.
Is digipa universal?
A digital perm is a type of hot perm in which additional heat processing is added to the general perm process that uses perm agents. The application of heat gives shape memory to the hair and strengthens the permed hair.
Based on these characteristics, this type of perm is recommended for people who have difficulty getting a normal perm, people whose perms do not last long or who want to make them last longer, people who want to make styling easier, and people who have straightened their hair.
On the other hand, it may be too much for people with fine hair or small volume. Also, because digital perms apply high heat, perms cannot be applied to the roots near the scalp. This heat may also cause severe damage.
The skill of the practitioner is key.
In general, hot perms tend to cause more damage to hair than normal perms because of the added heat damage, but in the case of digital perms, the case is a little different.
In the case of digital perms, fine temperature control is possible with the machine. By adjusting the humidity with steam and using special chemicals and treatment agents, it is possible to perform perms at relatively low temperatures, which can greatly reduce hair damage.
However, this depends on the experience and skill of the hair stylist who handles the chemicals and machines used, so it is a prerequisite to have a skilled hair stylist apply the treatment.
It is advisable to ask a reliable hairdresser to apply digital perms. However, you want to take the advantages as well as the disadvantages into consideration before having the treatment.
