Have you ever gone to the trouble of getting a perm, only to find that you can’t set it the way you want it? In this issue, we will show you how to set your hair according to the type of perm and how to set it according to the length of your hair.
Dry your hair the right way before setting it.
There are three steps to proper drying that you should keep in mind.
The first is towel drying. Wipe the moisture from the scalp with a towel and then pinch the hair between the towel and the scalp. Be conscious of carefully tucking it in as if you were tapping it, which will help to minimize damage.
The second is a treatment. When using a treatment, be conscious of combing through the hair before thoroughly applying it.
The third is blow-drying. First, dry the hair from the back of the head to the middle of the head. Then, wrap the remaining half-dried hair around your fingers as you dry it, to dry your hair efficiently.
How to set the right cold perm
Cold perm refers to a perm that does not apply heat to the hair, but uses only chemicals to create curls. With cold perm, waves are more easily reproduced when the hair is wet.
Therefore, when a cold perm client sets his/her hair, he/she should use water or a perm mist to wet the hair until the waves appear. Then apply styling products to the waves to make setting easier.
Once set, use a hair dryer to dry the ends of your hair. If wax is used, rub it into the ends carefully to make the perm last longer.
The right way to set the digital perm
A digital perm is a perm in which the curl-making process includes a process of applying heat to the hair. With a digital perm, the hair is straightened when it is wet and wavy when it is dry.
To set the hair, the person who has a digital perm applies wax or hair cream to the hair while twisting it in a circular motion. Those who wash their hair in the morning should also make sure to dry their hair thoroughly, because if it is left undried, it will not curl properly.
When drying with a hair dryer, repeat the process of twisting, lifting, and drying the ends of the hair.
Tips on how to set the right length of hair
Suitable setting methods vary depending on the length of the hair. For short hair, the key is to eliminate the parting of the hair, as the head and face will appear larger if the hair is left parted.
For medium or longer length hair, dryness and dryness at the ends are more noticeable. Therefore, be sure to take good care of your hair by using a non-washable type treatment on a regular basis. When setting hair, it is important to rub styling products into the ends.
Choosing a setting method that matches the type of perm and the length of your hair will make it easier to set your hair beautifully and reduce the time it takes to set. Refer to the methods introduced in this article and learn how to set your hair correctly.
