Busy mornings. If I could spend more time relaxing, sleep 10 minutes longer, and have a full breakfast…! If you are one of those people, perms are the way to go. But if you are hesitant to take the first step because you are afraid it will hurt your hair, let us introduce you to the charms of perms.
Perms hurt hair, don’t they?
Hair is indeed damaged by perms. However, your hair will not fall apart after just one perm. If you take good care of your hair on a daily basis, you can keep your hair beautiful even after having a perm, and on the other hand, if you neglect daily care, your hair will be damaged even without a perm.
The reason why people have the image that perms damage their hair is because they spend a lot of time at the hair salon, so they just feel that there is a lot of strain on their hair because of that. But in fact, compared to dyeing your own hair, perms at a hair salon are definitely less stressful on your hair.
After having a perm, you just need to brush your hair properly before shampooing to prevent the cuticles from peeling off, and take care of your hair with a rinse-off treatment before using the hair dryer. In fact, the less blow-drying and ironing you have to do in the morning, the less stress you will have to put on your hair on a daily basis.
How long will the perm last?
The next question on your mind when you want to have a perm is “how long will it last? Basically, perms, unlike color, do not lose their color, so they will last as long as you do not cut your hair. There are some changes that weaken the wave when new, unpermed hair gets mixed in, but permed hair is semi-permanent.
The reason why perms last so long is that the hair bonds are cut once by the agent and fixed again in the shape of the wave you want. Since the bonds in the hair cannot be cut without the agent, it is not something that can be easily removed. The reason it takes so long at the hair salon is because it is so hard to cut and stick the bonds in the hair.
Permanent, expanding, hairstyles
Perm is not only for straightening hair or making the whole hair curly. Recently, there are many perms such as “bangs perm” and “curls at the tips” that can be partially permed to make styling easier. If you have trouble styling your bangs or wish that only the ends of your hair were curled, please let your hair stylist know.
Also, when perming the entire hair, you can achieve your ideal hair style, such as “I want to curl only the ends of my hair while keeping the entire hair from spreading,” or “I want the ends to be straight and the roots to be fluffy. It takes time and is expensive.
It is time-consuming, expensive, and expensive to get a perm, but if you think about the time it takes to style your hair in the morning and the cost of styling products such as an iron, there is a lot of charm in having a perm that can expand your range of cute looks with just one treatment! We hope you will try to incorporate perms into your next beauty salon appointment.
