The phrase “water dripping good man/woman” is an idiom used to compliment sexiness and a unique vibe. And recently, it has become fashionable to finish permed hair wet instead of dry.
In this article, we will introduce the basics of finishing permed hair wet.
Non-drip type treatment
The first thing to worry about is “what should I use as a base? What we would like to recommend is a “no-rinse type treatment product. Permanent hair is damaged and the cuticles are peeled off, leaving the hair in a weaker state than usual. Therefore, using a treatment as a base agent is a very easy and smart way to “kill two birds with one stone” by taking care of your hair and styling it.
This is the most logical first step, since the freshness and luster of each strand of hair is important to achieve a truly wet hairstyle.
Minimal blow drying required.
As a precaution, blow-dry the hair to avoid unnecessary heat = damage to the hair. It is recommended to set the blow-dryer to low air mode and blow-dry while slightly dissipating the heat.
Hair itself must be sufficiently moisturized in order to achieve a wet permed look. Take special care not to over-blow dry your hair! Using a hair dryer with too strong wind may also cause the perm to fall out prematurely.
Finished with wax
Wax should be used as the styling agent. Mousse can give a wet look at the moment it is applied, but it is not sustainable, so wax is the best choice.
Fiber waxes and cream-based hairdressing products are better than “matte waxes,” as they accentuate the moist look. Please give it a try.
