Many people with straight hair may have experienced the following problems with perms: “I wanted to make my hair loose and soft, but it didn’t turn out the way I wanted it…” or “The perm fell out in one day, so I had to have it re-done again.
You spent a lot of money and time to get a perm. Even if you have straight hair, you want to enjoy permed styles. So, here are some tips on how to keep perms even if you have straight hair.
Let the hairdresser pick out the type of perm!
There are several types of perms, but do you ever have a hard time deciding which one you want when you order a perm? I have had the experience of ordering a perm with a name I’ve heard a lot, and thinking, “I’ll just order this one.
However, perms are compatible with different hair types. Some people can get a normal perm, while others have difficulty with perms for straight and fine hair.
Recently, digital perms are popular among straight-haired people because they are said to last longer. There are many other types of perms such as air wave, creep perm, and water perm, so first tell your hair stylist about your hair type and ask him or her to choose a perm that is easy to get!
Curl and iron are also utilized.
For those with straight hair that is difficult to perm, it is also recommended to utilize curls or an iron when styling after perming.
Waves that could not normally be achieved well with curls or an iron alone can be achieved more successfully with curls or an iron than when you normally use them, since the hair is in a permed state.
Hair care after a perm determines how long it lasts.
If your perm comes off easily, please review your hair care method after getting a perm.
Immediately after a perm, the chemicals are not fully absorbed into the hair, so you should not shampoo your hair that day, nor should you do so for 2~3 days. In addition, it is important to use a treatment to retain moisture in the hair, as perms leave the cuticle open and can cause dryness.
