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 disulphide bonds of your hair.
In other words, the chemicals soften the inner structure of the hair.
A perm is harsh on your hair, so only get one if you’re completely sure. You can also, straighten it when you want it straight.
It’s important to know your hair type and how it will react to the process of breaking and then re-forming links between protein chains in your hair.
Breaking these bonds causes the hair to expand, stretch, and take the shape it is held in by the rods.
