I remember back when I got my first perm; they used the regular method for my hair and sad to say, it was a disaster! I felt like I had ramen-noodle hair and it was so brittle and dry! I had to endure that hair for several months then I had it all chopped off. Several years down the road and now my hair is long enough and I am once again thinking of getting a perm.
You would think that after that disaster, I have learned my lesson and would vow to stay away from all perms. However, when I learned about the digital perming offered by a Korean salon in the city, I just had to give it a try! It sounded way better than the traditional way of getting a perm. Besides, I know some girls who have had it done and they look divine.
Before I try a new hairstyle or hair service, I always like to know if I can maintain it or not. I have done the following research about digitally-permed hair and I found that it is quite easy to manage. If you are planning on getting a digital perm, the following tips may come in handy! Check them out!
- When drying hair, twist your locks into little clumps so the curls are kept as they dry.
- Use an extra-hydrating conditioner because processed and permed hair will become dry. If you hydrate your hair, the curls are likely to last longer.
- Use mousses and curling sprays so that the curls of your hair are kept in tip top shape.
- Use a wide-toothed comb because this will help you work through tangles without damaging the curls. Using a paddle brush as you blow dry could straighten your hair.
- An ionic blow-dryer with a diffuser works best on digitally-permed hair.
- Once your hair is dry, use a curl-enhancing serum on your hair.
- Twist your hair in knots as you sleep to have curlier hair.
