Permed hair can be a tricky thing to manage. It often feels dry and brittle, and it can be difficult to keep it looking healthy and shiny. But with the right moisturizing routine, you can keep your perm looking its best.
What is a perm and how does it work
A perm is a hairstyle that allows your hair to be styled in a way that would not be possible with your natural hair texture. The process of perming your hair uses chemicals to break and reform the bonds in your hair and usually takes around two hours.
First, your stylist will apply a perm solution to your hair. This solution works to break the bonds in your hair. Next, your hair will be wrapped around perm rods. The size and shape of the perm rods will determine the final result of your perm and the texture of your hair. Finally, a neutralizing solution is applied to your hair, which reforms the bonds in your hair and sets your new perm. A perm usually lasts for around six weeks, after which you will need to have it redone if you want to maintain the same style.
The benefits of moisturizing permed hair
Anyone who has ever had a perm knows that the key to maintaining bouncy, beautiful curls is to keep your hair moisturized. Unfortunately, this can often be easier said than done. When your hair is dry, it is more likely to break, which can lead to frizz and split ends. In addition, dry hair is also more likely to absorb damage from heat styling and environmental factors. By keeping your hair hydrated, you can help to prevent these problems and keep your curls looking their best.
The best way to moisturize permed hair is to use a leave-in conditioner or an oil treatment. Apply the product to damp hair, concentrate on the ends, and then style as usual. You should also try to avoid using heat styling tools as much as possible, or using protective products when you style your hair.
Tips for maintaining healthy, moisturized permed hair
In addition to using the right products, there are a few other things you can do to keep your permed hair healthy and moisturized.
Here are a few tips:
-Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair, and be gentle when brushing. This will help to prevent breakage. Doing so while wet and with a leave-in conditioner causes the least amount of damage.
-Deep condition your hair once a week. This will help to restore moisture and keep your curls looking bouncy and healthy.
-Protect your hair from the sun. UV rays can damage your hair, making it dry and brittle.
-Be careful when swimming. Chlorine can strip your hair of its moisture, so make sure to wear a swim cap when you’re swimming in chlorinated water.
