A permanent wave, commonly called a perm , involves the use of chemicals to break and reform the bonds of the hair. The hair is washed and wrapped on a perm rod and waving lotion is applied with a base. This solution creates a chemical reaction that softens the inner structure of the hair by breaking some of the cross links within and between the protein chains of the hair. The hair swells, stretches and softens, then molds around the shape of the perm rod.

Steps preformed in perming

  1. Shampoo the hair.
  2. Set the rollers .
  3. Apply perm solution.
  4. Leave in for 30 -45 minutes, depending on the texture of the hair.
  5. Wash the hair with the rollers still on, untill all perm solution is washed off.
  6. Towel dry the hair with rollers still on.
  7. Apply neutralizer all over.
  8. Leave on for 15 minutes. 
  9. Rinse the hair and take rollers out.
  10. Condition the hair.
In some cases after the perm is performed, clients like to have there hair set/blowaved.

The reasons to get your hair permed are if you want more volume, curls or even just a wave.

Perms can last up to 6 months.

Natural/Organic Hair Products

Benefits of Organic Shampoo Conditioner & Treatment Products

In many types of organic shampoo conditioner and treatments, you will find ingredients such as certified organic tea tree. Another popular ingredient in many organic shampoo and conditioner products is beta glucan. Beta glucan has immune-enhancing properties both internally and topically. It helps to soothe inflamed cells of the scalp, which is particularly beneficial for people who suffer from skin conditions.

True organic shampoo and conditioner products offer a wealth of benefits for your hair and scalp that will be immediately noticeable. Organic products gently infuse your hair follicles and skin cells with natural minerals, herbal extracts, and oils. If you are looking for shampoos that stimulate healthy hair growth, look for products that are made with aloe vera and coconut oil, as they naturally moisturize your scalp. If you need enhanced shine and moisture for your hair, organic shea butter is an important ingredient to look for in your organic shampoo.

When you use organic shampoos and conditioners, you're also helping your environment by letting bio-degradable substances go down the drain and not harsh chemicals.

Dangers of Using Traditional Shampoos & Conditioners

Having these types of harmful chemicals in our bodies can lead to serious illnesses. Organic shampoo and conditioner products can easily be found, and often times, they are only marginally more expensive than the traditional brands.

Why organic hair products are expensive?

Reason 1. Natural Ingredients are more expensive to purchase.
Reason 2. More time is taken to formulate a natural product.
Reason 3. The market demand is high for natural products.
Reason 4. Preservation is shorter.

What to avoid in shampoos

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfates
  • mmonium Lauryl Sulfate
  • Derivatives of Lauryl Alcohol
  • Mureth Sulfate
  • Propylene Glycol (Antifreeze)
  • Olefin Sulfonate (Deodorized Kerosene)
