Perms, a popular hairstyle of decades past, has made a recent comeback – particularly for men! While perms can transform your look, they also require special care to maintain their bounce and texture.
Hydration is Key
One of the most important aspects of caring for permed hair is keeping it well-hydrated. Perm solutions can make hair more porous, leading to moisture loss. Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for permed hair. Look for products with ingredients like keratin, argan oil, or shea butter to nourish and moisturize your locks.
Avoid washing your newly permed hair too frequently, as overwashing can strip away natural oils and essential moisture. When you do, use lukewarm water and massage the scalp gently.
Choose Quality Products
Invest in products that are formulated for chemically treated hair. This includes leave-in conditioners, serums, and styling products designed to enhance curls without causing damage. Our knowledgeable stylists can help make product recommendations that keep your new style hydrated and looking its best.
Regular Deep Conditioning
Treat your permed hair to a deep conditioning treatment regularly. Deep conditioning helps restore moisture, repair damage, and keep your curls looking lively. Learn more about the importance of deep conditioning treatments here!
Avoid excessive heat styling, as permed hair is already prone to dryness. When using heat tools, make sure to use a heat protectant spray to minimize damage. Embrace protective hairstyles like braids or buns to give your curls a break from daily styling and reduce friction.
Regular trims are essential to maintaining the health and shape of permed hair. Trimming helps eliminate split ends and prevents breakage, ensuring that your curls stay defined and bouncy.
Protect Your Hair at Night
Invest in a silk or satin pillowcase to reduce friction and prevent breakage while you sleep. Consider using a silk or satin scarf or bonnet to protect your curls, especially if you toss and turn during the night.
