Are you a Good Candidate for Hair Waving or Perms?

In general, hair waving and perms will work best on hair that has not been colored on highlighted. This is because a hair waving or perm treatments tend to dry hair out, and hair that has already been overly processed is most likely drier than it should be. When hair that is already damaged is permed, it can result in extremely frizzy, dry, and unmanageable hair.

When you schedule an appointment for any hair waving or perm service, it is important to talk with your hair stylist to tell them about all of the chemical processes that you hair has been through in the last couple of years. The stylist can then evaluate your hair to determine if it is too damaged to be treated.

Healthy hair is a priority for all of our hair stylists with each client and during every service that we complete. Therefore, we will evaluate your hair before beginning any hair waving or perm process in order to ensure that your hair remains healthy. If your hair is not healthy enough for a hair waving treatment, we can work with you to develop other options. We also sell a wide variety of salon hair products and can recommend products to help revitalize your hair and to make your hair healthier.
