  • Do not use metal utensils, they will rust
  • Do not apply this product if you are taking antibiotics
  • Don’t do it on an empty stomach either.
  • If you have thin and weak hair, even if it is expensive, it is better to go to a professional hairdresser
  • Avoid doing this treatment if you have wounds, dandruff, redness or pimples on the scalp.

  • Before applying the product, wash your hair as you usually do, and apply a little conditioner.
  • Dry it with a towel to remove moisture but leave it wet.
  • Begin the perming process by picking up small sections with the fine comb and holding each one with a clip, starting at the crown, continuing to the sides and ending in front and in front.
  • Take each strand individually, remove the pin and roll, one by one, in the permanent rollers. Secure them with the hairpins.

  • If the hair is drying out, spray water to moisten the hair.
  • When finished, apply pure and neutral Vaseline to your scalp, to avoid redness and irritation due to the strong product that you are applying to your hair.
  • Put on some latex gloves and begin to apply the product on the curlers, as evenly as possible
  • Before starting, look at the waiting time that the manufacturer contemplates and control the time of each strand. The average for a permanent is usually around 20 minutes, although it is a variable figure.

  • Once the time is up, rinse the hair with plenty of lukewarm water and dry again with a towel to add the neutralizing solution. Yes, there are two products that we will apply to our hair.
  • When you’re done, start removing the curlers from the first one you applied the neutralizing solution to.
  • Remove the product from your head with plenty of warm water. Just water.

Now that you have it, it’s time to learn how to take care of your perm at home:

  • The average duration of a well-done perm is three months, so that it lasts, do not wash or comb your hair until 24-36 hours have passed since its application. This way you will be able to fix the curl.
  • It is advisable to use a wide-toothed brush so as not to undo the curl

  • Use specific products for permanents to prolong the effects and give more volume to the hair.
  • Don’t dye your hair for at least 8-10 weeks. The product applied to your hair will prevent the color pigment of a dye from adhering to the hair and the damage can be legendary.
  • You shouldn’t blow-dry it either, as the hot air will make your curls lose firmness.
  • If your hair smells like ammonia, you should know that it is normal and you will have to wait 3-4 days until it goes away. Of course, it will do it alone, without you having to apply any product.

  • Don’t even think about going to bed with wet hair or you will wake up with untamable hair. Dry it well before going to sleep
