Perms, also known as permanent waves, is a process where hair is treated with chemicals to alter its structure. This process allows a person with poker straight hair to have curls or waves. Whether they are soft and bouncy curls or tight spiral curls, different types of perms help to create a different look. Perms are mainly of two types, regular perm which is also known as cold perm and hot perm, which is also known as digital perm.
The process of perming involves the use of two main components. The first part is where the hair is wrapped around rods and a waving lotion (perming solution) is applied to soften the hair structure. The second part involves the use of a neutralizer that sets the curls.
The kind of perm that you get depends upon the size and shape of rods used, the wrapping technique used, as well as the kind of perming solution that is applied. Hair perming can be done with acidic or alkaline perming solution. Perms done with acidic solution are milder on hair and they give more gentle and shinier looking curls. Alkaline perms are suitable for hair that is coarser, has low elasticity and is more resistant to curling.
