Permed hair needs to be delicately maintained and cared for in order for them to look gorgeous. Here are 5 hair tips we will all need to better manage our newly permed hair.
"Blow styling a newly permed hair is something we need to get used to after some practice. It might be frustrating at first, but it will pay off in the long run once we get the hang of it. Here are the detailed steps on how we can style our newly permed hair:
Heavy-moisturizing is critical to provide shine and manageability to our newly-permed hair. But, protein is equally important as well to boost elasticity and add bounce to our curls. Our favourite? Oribe Gold Lust range has just the right balance of both while still remaining lightweight.
Rubbing the curl cream on our palm first before applying it on our hair lengths will ensure even distribution.
Lifting our roots using our fingers and blow-drying it will create volume at our crown.
A wide-tooth comb reduces friction posed to the hair, thus minimising mechanical damage.
Do remember to ensure symmetry, meaning if the left side is twisted inwards, the right side must follow, and vice versa.
This is the most important step when it comes to styling our newly-permed hair. Always twist the hair continuously in one direction and our hair dryer should point in the same downward direction as well. Many of us commit the same mistake by twisting the hair inwards but our hairdryer is pointing outwards. This counteracting action will result in lifeless and frizzy hair. Also, do not point our hairdryer upwards to avoid unruliness. Say NO to Beyonce "Crazy In Love" windblown hair performance.
Running our fingers once on each side will loosen the curls for a more natural and wavy look. Fret not, throughout the day, the curls will loosen gradually. Thus, avoid combing it more than once as this will straighten the curls and create frizz. This brings us to the next hair tips..." Associate Director of Chez Vous HideAway Salon, Oscar Lee
"When we touch our hair, we are creating friction. Friction causes our hair cuticles to open and this allows humidity in the air to "enter" our hair - causing frizz and unruliness." Associate Director of Chez Vous HideAway Salon, Oscar Lee
"Protein promotes strength and elasticity within the hair. Both of which are important to prolong our newly permed curls and waves. Do note that curls and waves tend to go away in a few weeks or days if our hair is weak and porous.
Our top favourite will be Goldwell Kerasilk Reconstruct Masque. If our budget allows, Olaplex No. 3 is also a good bond-strengthening add-on to our weekly routine as well." Associate Director of Chez Vous HideAway Salon, Oscar Lee
"When our hair is wet for a prolonged period of time, it will swell and create tension within it - resulting in irreversible damage and weakening of the hair. This will shorten the lifespan of our newly permed curls and waves." Associate Director of Chez Vous HideAway Salon, Oscar Lee
"Tokio Inkarami Hair Treatment is the perfect therapy for prolonging and maintaining our curls and waves. This therapy repairs and increases the strength of our hair by up to 140% with 6 types of amino acids; fullerene; cell membrane complex; and 18MEA. After each treatment, curls will last longer and become better sculpted, without compromising hair volume." Associate Director of Chez Vous HideAway Salon, Oscar Lee
