Let’s talk perms

I know I know you don’t want to hear about them, they were left behind in the Betty White era …. but were they?

Perms are constantly getting bad reps, but from my first hand experience I loved my perm, the maintenance (which was nonexistent) the look and overall ease gave my hair just the break it needed.

I’ve even done perms on some of my clients and no they weren’t little old ladies they were young men and women.

Believe me when I tell you that they are not an outdated practice, here are some of the things you need to know before committing.

YOU CANNOT PERM PREVIOUSLY LIGHTENED/BLEACHED HAIR

I won’t expand as there is no way around this, your hair will surely break off.

Make sure the picture your bring is realistic

I am sure you have heard this one before but when I see people bringing in pictures of hair that is curled with a straightener, I cringe. Yes, naturally curly hair will have some frizz and that’s just what makes it natural looking. Of course with the right products you can minimize it.

Below is a common hair picture that get’s brought in, this was most likely styled with heat be it a straightener, curling iron or a wand. Please do not think this is what you will look like 24/7 it wont.

Day to day maintenance

There are two options here

If you are a morning showerer I suggest using your hair diffuser

A what ?

Yes, I said a diffuser this tool is an extension to the nozzle on your blow dryer; instead of lots of air with heat, it disperses the air to deliver more heat than air. I would suggest drying you roots then heading out.

 

If you are a night showerer then you have your work all cut out for you.

Shower as usual, brush your hair with conditioner while in the shower. When you get out make sure your fav product is nearby scrunch with it and your all set. Make sure to lay a towel down on your pillow.

Go to bed and wake up with you hair looking flawless! #hairflipbye

Can I still blow dry or straighten my hair?

Yes, you are able to style your hair as usual. The only real difference is that when it’s wet it reverts back to it’s curly state.

Would you recommend this for fine hair?

Absolutely a handful of my clients with fine hair have turned to this option and never looked back.

For those every so often bad hair days there are hats, buns and ponies.
