What Exactly Are Perms?

A perm is a method of hairstyling that uses chemicals to create curls or waves in your hair. Modern-day perms can be tailored to fit the exact look you want, whether it’s super curly, semi-curly, wavy or even straight. The word “perm” itself is short for “permanent hairstyle,” but this doesn’t mean that your perm will last forever and ever.

Perms use chemicals to alter the texture and shape of your hair. These chemicals change straight or wavy hair into bouncy curls or vice versa. What your stylist will do is apply the perm lotion onto your hair that’s been wrapped around rods. After letting the lotion sit for the time it needs, stylists will rinse the lotion out, get your hair as dry as possible, and then apply a neutralizing agent to stop the perming process. The chemical found in the perming lotion is called ammonium thioglycolate.

So really any hair type can receive a perm, but there are certain factors to keep in mind before getting one:

What’s Your Hair Length? – Your hair doesn’t need to be long enough to reach the floor, but it does need to be long enough to wrap around the rod at least two or three times. Without proper length, a perm won’t work.

Do You Have Dyed/Colored Hair? – Pretty much anyone with long enough hair can get a perm, but when it comes to colored or dyed hair, that’s where it gets tricky. “Virgin” hair is the best candidate for a perm, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible for those with colored hair to get one. However, it’s not highly recommended for those with bleached or highlighted hair to receive a perm. You’ll want to speak with your stylist about what approach is best for you.

One thing you really don’t want to do when getting a perm is getting it wet right after the process. It’s best to wait up to 48 hours after the process before getting it wet. Curls need moisture to be healthy so you’ll want to invest in some quality products to maintain your hair. Products you’ll want to use are things like moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that’s specially made for chemically-treated hair.

The best perms in Lawton are at Lemon Tree Hair Salon.

What Can I Expect When Getting a Perm?

The first thing you’ll want to consider when getting a perm is what kind of perm you want, whether it be spiral curls or more relaxed curly waves. Depending on what you want your curls to look like will determine what the perm process will be. For the most part, perms take time – anywhere from two to three hours. The process involves hair rollers and rods, chemicals, and time. The size of the rods and rollers will depend on what style of perm you want, so the first thing to expect when looking into perms is your stylist asking you what you want your perm to look like.

The Pros of Getting a Perm

  • Getting a perm means getting the hairstyle you want, whether it’s bouncy curls or tamed waves.
  • You won’t need to spend hours curling your hair with an iron to get the look you desire.
  • Since you won’t be using a curling iron, you won’t be damaging your hair with extreme heat.
  • You’ll be giving your hair volume which will give it a fuller and lush look.

The Cons of Getting a Perm

  • As perms tend to be semi-permanent, you can’t just change your mind after it’s been done. You’ll be stuck with it for a while whether you like it or not.
  • There is a risk of damaging your hair as the chemicals involved can be pretty intense.
  • You cannot wet your hair for up to 48 hours after the treatment. Wetting your hair will lead to the curls losing their strength.
  • Perms don’t quite have the same look as natural curls, but they look good if done well.
  • You may need to spend more money (on top of the money you spent on the perming process) on hair products to help maintain and care for your hair and keep the perm looking fresh and healthy.
