Styling products are indispensable for keeping perms beautiful. However, there are many styling products, and many people may be at a loss as to which one to choose. Here, we will introduce in detail how to use styling products to set perms well.
Outburst treatment as a base treatment before styling.
In order to get beautiful curls and waves from perms, it is important to protect your hair by applying a non-flushing type out-bath treatment after washing your hair at night. Since perms tend to dry out the ends of the hair, we recommend a moisturizing treatment such as oil or milk. With just the right amount of shine, your hair will stay moist and manageable all the way to the ends.
How to use a good styling product to keep a fluffy perm
So, what steps should you take to use a styling product to set your perm beautifully? Let’s take a closer look below.
- After moderately moistening hair with a spray or perm mist, apply a hair mousse in the case of cold perms, or an oil-based treatment in the case of hot perms (such as digital perms), thoroughly from the middle of the hair to the ends.
- Wrap the hair in the palm of your hand, lift it lightly, and blow dry with a hair dryer. 3.
- Twirl the hair around your fingers so that it curls inward, and apply warm air from the hair dryer, followed by cool air to cool the hair. If you have trouble with this, we recommend using a diffuser (styler) on the end of the hair dryer.
- Finish by applying a light hair wax or wax spray to add shine and unraveling the curls to create movement in the hair.
Select styling products according to the type of perm
The key to choosing a styling product for perms is to choose a styling product that matches the type of perm. For cold perms, which create a strong curl feeling when the hair is wet, use hair mousse to add a wet texture before styling.
On the other hand, if you have a hot perm, which gives a strong curl feeling when your hair is dry, an oil-based treatment is more suitable than hair mousse.
It is a good idea to understand well what kind of perm you have before choosing a styling product. It is also a good idea to ask your stylist for styling product recommendations when you have your perm done.
