Do people still get perms? Yes!

Perms have such a bad reputation for being too 1980’s, smelly, or damaging. It is time to remove that stigma!

Earlier this week I did a perm on a young lady with sponge rollers. I used a brand called “Iso Perm: Option 1”. She had a perm previously but no other chemical services on her hair. She wanted big loose curls with them even looser around her face. I used different sizes of “Annie” rollers varying from 1 1/4 inch to 3/4 inch. The result was phenomenal! I wanted a perm after seeing these results! I told her that she should  come back in 8 weeks for a haircut and that will reactivate her perm and allow the curls to bounce again by trimming off any dead ends. I also told her that she should probably get 2-3 perms a year to maintain the look.  

To style at home, she needs to use a gentle shampoo and conditioner. I recommended L’anza Color Care shampoo and conditioner because it is gentle, sulfate free, and lightweight. I also told her to do a moisturizing deep conditioner once a week. My favorite is the Davines Natural Tech Nourishing Vegetarian Miracle. She can style her hair by letting it air dry or diffuse with a blow-dryer. I recommended the following Oribe Products; leave-in conditioner Curl by Definition by Oribe, a volumizing mousse called Granidiose, and finish with Impermeable Anti-humidity hairspray.

So what do you think, would you consider getting a perm in 2014?
