Straight hair has a strong impression that perms are difficult to apply, such as “perms come off too soon after application” or “it is difficult to create soft movement. What kind of perms are suitable for straight hair? In this issue, we will introduce perms recommended for men with straight hair in detail.
Digital perm is recommended for straight hair
There are two types of perms: cold perms, which use only chemicals, and hot perms, which use chemicals and heat.
If you have straight hair, the cuticle layer on the hair surface may be too tight, making it difficult for the perm to penetrate through the cuticle. Therefore, if you want to give your hair a firm movement at the ends, a hot perm that also uses the power of heat is recommended.
There are several types of hot perms, but the one that is said to be the easiest to care for is the digital perm. In a digital perm, the perm agent is applied to break the protein bonds in the hair once, then rods are wrapped around the hair to apply heat, and the perm agent is applied again to recombine the proteins in the hair, thus creating a wave.
This is especially recommended for those who have straight hair and have difficulty getting perms, as it produces stronger movement in the hair when it is dry. However, since rods are used, the hair must be a certain length before a digital perm can be applied.
Cold perm pin perms can be applied to short styles, so when applying perms, be sure to inform your hair stylist of your desired perm style at a pre-consultation.
By length! Perms for men with straight hair
- Short style
The perm recommended for men with straight hair in short styles is a soft two-block style with randomly moving ends. The cut and perm will easily create a bunchy look, so simply rub wax into the hair.
- Medium style
For men with straight hair who are in the process of growing out their hair, we recommend a style with medium layers and a perm. The whole hair flows beautifully, adding a fashionable look to hair that is still growing out. For styling, simply rub wax into the hair and then use a hairdryer to straighten the flow of hair.
After perming, you can use the treatment
Many men do not use treatment, but their hair is more likely to dry out after a perm. Since your hair is more susceptible to damage from friction, make sure to take good care of your hair after shampooing, especially at the ends, in order to enjoy permed hair for longer.
With a perm that is perfect for you, you will have hair that is sure to win the hearts of girls!
