Did you know that the best time to get your curls is before bed? While a natural perm can be done any time of the day, for a more permanent result, you should wait until your hair has been relaxing for at least six hours. In fact, it’s quite the opposite! Washing and conditioning your hair before getting a perm will actually increase its durability and help to lock in those curls long-term. Here are some reasons why you should wash and condition your hair before getting a perm:
Should You Wash Your Hair Before A Perm?
While it’s important to remove any excess oils before getting a perm, washing your hair before getting a perm is optional. Depending on your hair type and texture, you might not need to wash your hair before getting a perm. If your hair is on the thinner side and doesn’t have much volume, washing it before getting a perm might weigh it down and make it too heavy for the stylist to work with. In this case, it might be better for you to forgo the shower and just use some dry shampoo or a volumizing spray to help control the oil. If your hair is on the thicker side and is more voluminous, washing it before getting a perm will help you to get a more even result. Washing your hair before getting a perm will help get rid of any dirt or oil build-up, so the stylist can see the natural texture of your hair and apply the perm solution evenly.
Will The Perm Solution Stick Better To Your Wet Hair?
Did you know that wet hair has different properties than dry hair? As a result, the effectiveness of any hair product changes based on the amount of moisture in your strands. For instance, products formulated for dry hair (e.g., a leave-in conditioner) may not perform as well on wet hair and vice versa. This is why many brands specifically offer two different versions of their products: one for wet and one for dry hair. The Perm Solution is no exception! Our original formula was formulated for dry hair so it wouldn’t slip and slide out of place once it got wet. But since so many of you asked us to make a version that sticks even when your locks are wet… we did just that! Here are five reasons why The Perm Solution Wet Hair Solution will stick better to your wet hair than its predecessor:
Wet hair is more bendable and flexible.
Wet hair is more bendable and flexible. If you’ve ever tried to style wet hair, you know that it’s a lot more difficult to control than dry hair. This is because wet hair is more bendable and flexible than dry hair. As a result, it’s a lot more difficult to style. The reason many people prefer to wash their hair at night instead of in the morning is that it gives the strands all night to dry and stiffen up again. This makes them easier to style in the morning. The Perm Solution is made to be used on dry hair, and it works incredibly well in this scenario because the hair is far less bendable and flexible. But the wet hair version is formulated to be a little bit more bendable and flexible, allowing the solution to slide into the hair a little more easily. The thicker consistency of the wet hair version also helps it to stay put, even with wet hair!
The perm solution has a thicker consistency.
The wet hair version of The Perm Solution has a slightly thicker consistency than the original. This is because the thicker consistency of the wet hair version helps it to stay put with wet hair. The thicker consistency also helps the product to last longer than the original version, reducing the frequency with which you have to reapply The Perm Solution. The dry hair version of The Perm Solution is a water-based formula that contains a very small amount of silicone to help the product stay put. The wet hair version of The Perm Solution also contains a small amount of silicone, but a larger proportion of adhesives than the original version. The adhesives in the wet hair version are drawn to the slightly thicker consistency of the formula, helping the product to stay put even when your hair is wet!
The perm solution has a larger concentration of adhesives.
The larger concentration of adhesives in the wet hair version of The Perm Solution is what makes it stick better to wet hair. This is because adhesives are designed to bind to themselves, not to your hair. The adhesives are designed to bind to the adhesives in the solution, creating a sticky barrier that holds the product in place, even in wet hair!
Benefits Of Washing Your Hair Before A Perm?
1. Washing your hair before getting a perm gives it some time to recover.
When you get a perm, the chemicals used in the process react with your hair and make the strands curly. However, the top layer of your hair also gets a bit damaged because of this. The shampoo that you use before getting a perm cleans your hair and helps it recover from the damage caused by the chemicals. If you don’t wash your hair before getting a perm, the chemicals will work on your unwashed hair as well. Moreover, they might not work as effectively on unwashed hair, which could lead to poor results with the new hairstyle.
2. It cleanses the scalp and conditions your hair.
Shampoos have mild cleansers in them that are not strong enough to damage your hair. Hence, you can use shampoo before getting a perm to cleanse the scalp and hair. You can also use a conditioner to make your hair softer. Using a shampoo before getting a perm will also help to reduce the frizz in your hair. When you condition your hair before getting a perm, the chemicals used in the process will work on the hair more efficiently. This will help you get better results with your new hairstyle.
3. It helps in reducing the time for perming.
When your hair is clean, the chemicals in the perm solution will work on it more effectively. This will help you reduce the time for perming your hair. If your hair is dirty, it will take the chemicals longer to work on your hair. This might take up to an hour, so if you shampoo your hair before getting a perm, you can reduce the time for perming. This will also help you protect your hair from damage caused by the chemicals and make your new hairstyle last longer.
4. It ensures better results with a perm.
When your hair is clean, the chemicals that are used in the perm solution will take a few seconds to react with the hair. So, your perming will be effective and you will get better results with the new hairstyle. It is also important to mention here that you shouldn’t wash your hair too far in advance because it takes the chemicals some time to react with the hair. You can wash your hair up to an hour before getting a perm because it will give the chemicals enough time to react with the hair and give you better results.
5. It helps you choose the right type of perm for your hair type.
If your hair is dirty, the chemicals in the perm solution will take some time to work on it. In such a case, you might get better results with a relaxing perm. On the other hand, if your hair is clean, the chemicals will work on it instantly. In this scenario, you might want to get a curling perm instead. Since you have washed your hair before getting a perm, you know exactly how long it will take for the chemicals to react with your hair. This will help you choose the right type of perm for your hair type.
When you wash your hair before getting a perm, it will be easier for your stylist to manipulate and distribute the perm solution. It will also be easier for you to maintain the curl and style your hair after getting your perm. Washing your hair before getting a perm will open up the hair cuticles, so the perm solution can penetrate the strands easier and grip your hair more efficiently. Your stylist will be able to see the texture and length of your hair, which will help them to apply the perm solution more accurately.
