I went to a salon longing for fluffy curly hair, but the perm didn’t work! But the perm doesn’t work!
There is a way to make perms last longer even with straight hair, and if you follow three precautions, you too can have fluffy permed hair from today.
What is important for straight hair to enjoy perms?
Straight hair has its own charm. Some people want to have straight hair that is always silky and straight like straight hair, so they keep straightening their hair.
However, straight-haired people themselves long for permed hair. The structure of straight people’s hair is such that there is no bias in the internal components of the hair, and the cross-section is close to a circle. A perm artificially curves this structure to create waves, but the straighter and healthier the hair, the stronger the hair’s ability to repair itself, and the harder it is to get a perm and the easier it is to remove. Therefore, the following points should be noted.
- Talk to the salon about your “straight hair that is difficult to get a perm”.
When you go to a salon, it is difficult to express your opinion clearly. However, if you tell the salon in advance about your problem and desired styling, a professional hair stylist will be able to offer a solution. They will choose a perm method that is easy to apply even for people with straight hair.
- Try a point perm
Point perms are actually recommended for people with straight hair who have difficulty getting perms on their hair as a whole. Partially perming hair in areas where you want movement, such as the bangs and ends, will give you more expression and styling options.
- Self-maintenance is key!
To make the perm last as long as possible, try not to shampoo on the day of the perm.
From the next day, after washing your hair, when drying it, do not dry it while stretching the perm. Dry your hair while wrapping it with your hands to recreate the wave of the perm. Use curlers to maintain permanent curls when styling. It is also recommended to use hair care products that make it easier to curl.
The ease of application depends on the condition of your hair.
First, consult with your stylist. Make sure to check with your stylist about care after curling and ensure that you take good care of your hair.
