A permanent wave, also known as a perm, is a chemical hair treatment that can be used to straighten or add curl and body to your hair. Every perm has two parts: the physical wrapping of the hair into shapes and a chemical bath that breaks and then reforms the disulfide bonds of your hair. In other words, the chemicals soften the inner structure of the hair.
Hair perms are a fantastic way and versatile process. With today’s perms, you can have everything from body to loose and sexy waves to true curls. Hair perms will also give you the true “wash and wear” hair style that every woman seeks. A hair perm can free you from the hassles of setting, blow-drying, and curling irons.
