Perms

The perm has finally surpassed the poodle with new hair technology that is making waves – literally. No longer an 80’s nightmare, the new perm treatments incorporate built-in conditioners and health-conscious chemicals that leave you with woke-up-in-this waves that require minimal styling.

Now, the results are permanent so it is important that it is done correctly.

The soft, natural waves are the hallmark of the body wave perm. This treatment involves a variety of wrapping style and large perm rod choices. The result is off-duty model hair – I just slept in my blow out, check out this soft bedhead tresses.

Now, the consequences are permanent so it is important that it is done correctly. Here is our guide to the post-80’s perm:

Do your research

Don’t let getting a perm crimp your style. Bring in a photo to make sure that you and your stylist are on the same page.

Cream of the curl inspirations include: Blake Lively or Julianne Hough for that barely-there bohemian wave, or Ciara for bouncy, voluminous curls. Each style calls for a different approach: setting time, cost and upkeep.

Talk to your stylist beforehand.

Prime your hair

Do a few rounds of deep-conditioning beforehand. Just like priming your skin before make up, the base is important.

Make sure that your hair is as healthy as can be. This technique works on all hair types but does not work well on double-processed hair. Perms have also been known to lighten hair color. If you have straight hair with no body, it was made for this.

The best length for a body wave is a lob (long bob) or longer. Have your hair cut into layers. Same-length hair may result in a pyramid.

Walk like an Egyptian – good song, not such a good look.

Size matters

The size of the perm rod will determine your curl. Go for a larger rod, and get that soft tousled look. Your stylist will customize the roller size based on your hair length and density.

Then, they will put a neutralizer through your hair, which will determine the hardness of your curls. You should discuss this with your stylist to get the look you want to achieve.

Avoid putting the perms rod in a directional way. Natural curls and waves are never uniform.

Perming process

The treatment can take anywhere between two to three hours depending on the length and the thickness of your hair.

The new process is not damaging because it uses protectants in the treatment. Thio-free solutions have been lauded because they induce less damage and odor, but they do not last as long as the traditional perm.

The waves typically relax after three to five months, however, the perm will remain until your hair grows out. This is something to take into consideration

Perm Mane-tenance

Wait a few days before washing your hair with shampoo – the curls need time to set.

After that, wash infrequently – just like dyed hair, the less you shampoo the better. Use products that made for curls, and are sulfate-free. Avoid creamy formulas that can weigh curls down. A deep conditioning protein with minerals will help to keep your hair healthy and frizz-free as possible.

The less heat, the better. Avoid blow drying your hair or straightening it with an iron. If you need to dry it quickly, a diffuser is better than rough drying.

After washing, style it with a soft curl cream, by scrunching up irregular sized strands in your hand to create an easy curl. To refresh, us ea bit of sea salt spray, scrunch and go.

At Bookwell, we want you to stress less about your tresses. What are you waiting for? Book a consultation with one of your hairstylist and make some waves.
