Long hair with bodily waves or curls is back, thanks to the wonderful trend of perms. Perms have grown wonderfully fast over the past 5-10 years, but they can also cause damage if your hair is not built to face the whole perming process. So, if you are thinking of perming your hair, consider these red flags.
1. Highlighted hair
If you hair is highlighted, think twice before perming it. Perming over-bleached hair will cause some damage to the hair cuticles, and make your hair ends in frizz. Plus, you have to touch-up your highlight regularly, causing more damage.
2. Dry hair
If your hair is already dry, brittle or frizzy, a perming will cause more damage. Not that you cannot perm your hair at all, but you sure must invest your time and money on reconditioning treatments and daily treatments after perming.
3. Short layers
Short layers are great with straight hair, but if you curl the short-layered hair, you will only end up with a bulk of volume around ears and jawlines.
4. Colored hair
Perming colored hair is not as dangerous as perming highlighted hair, but it is best to wait for at least 2 or 3 weeks before and after perming to color your hair. Remember also that perming will lighten your hair color.
It is important to discuss with your hairstylist about the condition of your hair, your hair type and maintenance, and the most recent treatment that you have applied on your hair, before deciding to give your hair a perm. That way, your hairstylist will be able to determine what kind of perm your hair can handle, or whether your hair can get a perming or not. Avoid any home perming products (let professionals do it), and focus your hair treatment on keeping the frizz at bay after perming.
