10 Myths about Perms

















1. FOR THE OLDER GENERATION


No, absolutely all age groups come to our salon.

From teenage boys to get a curly top with a side fade..... to our older clients.




2. IT WILL MAKE YOUR HAIR FRIZZY


Look after your hair as directed by your stylist & you will be ok, early washing, fiddling etc will encourage frizz.


3. ITS BAD FOR YOUR HAIR CONDITION


False, the hair follicle is opened up with the perming solution then reconstructed into a curl, lastly its set with neutralizing solution. Often times naturally coarse hair will be softened after this service.



4. YOU CANT PERM COLOUR TREATED HAIR


We have perms for colour treated hair also pre lightened hair of which I would take a test strand.















5. YOU WILL NEED ROOTS PERMING AS IT GROWS OUT


Your next perm can be applied within a few months, this can be done all over without damage.


6. IT WILL LOOK UN- NATURAL


Treat your perm well & it will look natural, especially after its settled in a weeks time.


7. I WONT BE ABLE TO WEAR IT STRAIGHT


A body perm will easilt straighten with a blow dry or straighteners.


8. DOES IT MEAN I WONT HAVE ANY DAILY HAIR MAINTENANCE?


No, you will still need to put some effort in but generally a little spray with water & hair serum should suffice.


9. I CAN USE MY USUAL HAIR PRODUCTS


You will need a good moisturising shampoo & conditioner. A good quality hair oil to maintain moisture levels too.


10. MY HAIR WILL SMELL FOR WEEKS AFTER


That thank goodness is a thing of the past! Whilst perms do initially smell as they contain certain chemicals that cant be avoided, the aroma does not linger for weeks.
