How damaging is a perm to your hair?
A perm or permanent wave works by breaking, realigning and then reforming the disulphide bonds between the proteins in the hair. The reforming of these bonds cannot be perfect, so the hair becomes more brittle and weak. Some perms are more thorough than others at reforming the bonds, but all damage the structure of the hair to some degree.
Wash your hair before you perm, but don't use conditioner. Damp hair is easier to wrap around perm rollers, and it's going to be a while before you can re-wash your hair after the perm! After the perm is finished, do not wash your hair for 48 hours, as the chemical bonds are still setting. If you wash your hair too early, it may effect the perm results. I'd also suggest getting your hair trimmed…
Any perm can destroy youir hair.They have those awful damaging chemicals in their products.Well texturizers does the ame thing.But actually their making money off their products you keep buying that's keep breaking up your hair.I mean you can starighten your hair with a straight iron.or style and curl it anyway you liek without a perm.
Yes, however only when the person doing the perm does not know what the chemicals in the perm and neutraliser are capable of doing to the hair. Always ensure your hairdresser does a number of hair tests before perming the hair. If the hairdresser has done this and has experience of perming hair, then it will be safe to have a perm.
