Is there a perm that can make my hair curly without damage?

Among those who have ever had a perm,

I don’t want to do it again because it hurt my hair.
They have experienced failure.
My hair spreads and is hard to style

I think you’ve experienced things like this.

However, it is now possible to create curly styles with minimal damage to the hair due to the evolution of perm products and the improved skills of hairdressers.

If you are wondering whether you should have a perm in the future, this article is a good place to start.

Why perming damaged hair?

Perming can damage hair for several reasons:

  • The perm solution: The perm solution contains chemicals that break down the bonds in the hair, which can make it more brittle and prone to breakage.
  • The heat: The heat used to set the perm can also damage the hair, making it dry and frizzy.
  • The tension: The tension applied to the hair during the perming process can also damage it, making it more prone to breakage.
  • The frequency: Perming your hair too often can also damage it, as the chemicals and heat can break down the hair’s natural protective layers.

How to avoid damaging hair with perming?

Here are some tips to help prevent perming damage:

  • Choose a reputable salon and stylist: A good stylist will be able to assess your hair’s condition and choose the right perm solution and technique for your hair type.
  • Use a mild perm solution: There are different strengths of perm solutions available, so choose one that is mild enough for your hair type.
  • Reduce the amount of heat used: If possible, ask your stylist to use less heat when setting the perm.
  • Use a leave-in conditioner: A leave-in conditioner can help protect your hair from the chemicals and heat used in the perming process.
  • Avoid perming your hair too often: Perming your hair too often can damage it, so try to space out your perm appointments as much as possible.

By following these tips, you can help minimize the damage to your hair from perming.

How to style acid perms and regular perms.

There are a few latest perming solutions that are designed to be less damaging to hair than traditional perms. These solutions often use milder chemicals and lower temperatures, which can help to reduce the amount of damage to the hair.

Some of the latest perming solutions include:

  • Acid perm:  Acid perms are a type of perm that uses a mild chemical solution to break down the bonds in the hair. This allows the hair to be styled into a new shape, which is then set using heat. Acid perms are generally considered to be less damaging to hair than alkaline perms, as they do not use harsh chemicals. However, acid perms can still damage hair if they are not done correctly.
  • Digital perms: Digital perms use heat to set the perm, instead of traditional rollers. This can help to reduce the amount of tension applied to the hair, which can also help to reduce damage.
  • Olaplex perms: Olaplex perms use a bond-building treatment called Olaplex No. 3 to help protect the hair during the perming process. This treatment can help to reduce the amount of damage to the hair, and it can also help to improve the overall health of the hair.

If you are considering getting a perm, it is important to talk to your stylist about the latest perming solutions. They can help you to choose the right solution for your hair type and needs.

Know the advantages and disadvantages of acid perms.

For those who are still unsure which way to go after listening to the previous explanations, this section will explain the advantages and disadvantages of acid perms so that they can fully understand the advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages of acid perms

  1. Hair is less likely to be damaged
  2. Minimises damage
  3. Produces glossy curls
  4. Natural finish

These four are the main advantages.

Disadvantages of acid perms

  1. Difficult to create tight curls
  2. Slightly shorter in duration.

How to maintain hair after perming?

Here are some tips on how to maintain your hair after perming:

  • Use a mild shampoo and conditioner: Perming can make your hair more porous, so it’s important to use a mild shampoo and conditioner that won’t strip away the natural oils from your hair. Look for shampoos and conditioners that are labeled as “sulfate-free” or “paraben-free.”
  • Avoid using heat styling tools: Heat styling tools can damage your hair, especially if your hair is already permed. If you must use heat styling tools, use them on a low setting and be sure to apply a heat protectant spray to your hair first.
  • Get regular trims: Regular trims will help to remove any damaged hair and keep your perm looking its best.
  • Use a leave-in conditioner: A leave-in conditioner can help to hydrate your hair and prevent it from becoming dry and frizzy. Look for a leave-in conditioner that is specifically designed for permed hair.
  • Be patient: It can take a few weeks for your perm to be fully set. Be patient and don’t over-style your hair during this time.

Is it impossible to perm bleached hair and straighten hair?


It is not impossible to perm bleached hair or straightened hair, but it is important to be aware of the risks involved.

Bleaching and straightening hair can damage the hair’s cuticle, making it more porous and susceptible to damage from the chemicals used in perming.

As a result, perming bleached or straightened hair can increase the risk of breakage and hair loss.

If you are considering perming bleached or straightened hair, it is important to talk to your stylist about the risks involved.

They can help you to decide if perming is the right choice for you and can recommend a perm solution that is less damaging to your hair.

At Baroque hair and nails, we have done perms for many customers, and we are conscious of providing soft textures and shiny curls that do not cause damage.

How long does it take to do an acid perm and a normal perm?

The acid perm is a gentle and firm agent that penetrates into the hair’s internal structure, slowly and gently curling the hair into a curl style.

A haircut + acid perm can take from 2 hours, or depending on the condition of your hair, 3 hours!

At Baroque hair and nails, we work with each customer individually and carefully.

Can hair straightening and acid perms be done together (straight curl)?

Many people with naturally permed or frizzy hair want to straighten their hair but want to make the ends curly like a perm.

Only digital perms can be done together with hair straightening, which is difficult with acid perms as it is difficult to get curls.

When straightening and digital perming are done at the same time, stronger chemicals are used on the frizzy part of the hair and gentler chemicals are used on the hair ends to soften the hair.

After that, a straightening iron is used to straighten the frizzy part of the hair at the roots, and then a digital perm rod is used to perm the hair from the ends to the middle of the hair to give it a permanent look.

Finally, a solution to fix the hair, called a two-component solution, is applied to the entire hair to complete the process.

There are many people at Baroque hair and nails who want to have their hair straightened and digitally permed at the same time, so please come in and see us.

For first-timers, an acid perm with just one curl at the ends is recommended.

There are many people who would like to try perming their hair but are a little afraid of it getting curly.

We recommend ‘one curl’ for such people.

One-curls at the ends are recommended for people who often tie their hair up or put it up.

If you have just a little playful movement at the ends of your hair, it will look cute when you tie it up, and when you curl it with an iron, the curls will last all day, so it’s highly recommended!

If this is your first perm and you think it’s intimidating, try one curl to start with!

Acid perm makes it easy to set your hair every morning.

People who have perms often say.

‘It’s so much easier to style my hair in the morning when I get a perm.’

I often hear people say this.

With straight hair, if the middle part of your hair is wavy due to sleeping habit or the ends are bouncy, you have to blow-dry your hair.

But if you get a perm, you can make the most of your sleeping habits, and you can revive your curls just by moistening your hair with water, such as a mist, and applying cream or oil, so it’s very easy to style your hair in the morning, making it very popular!

Are acid perms popular these days?

Recently, many people are concerned about damage to their hair, so perms using acidic agents are becoming more common than perms using common alkaline agents.

Of course, depending on the design of the curls you want, the chemicals used and the treatment method will vary, so you need to consult your hairdresser carefully!

Which is more suitable for men: acid perm or normal perm?

For people with short hair, like men, an acid perm or a regular perm will do!

If your hair is stiff and difficult to manage, alkaline products may make your hair softer, so it is better to determine this depending on your individual hair condition.

Some men like loose curls, and some like firm, ridge curls, so it depends on the design you want to achieve!

What if the acid perm damages it?

Perms are the second most painful beauty service after bleaching and straightening.

So the more perms you repeatedly have, the weaker your hair tends to become, leading to damage.

This is where home care is important.

If the shampoo and treatment you use every day are of good quality, you can keep your hair in good condition, so try to be more particular about the shampoo and treatment you use at home than you are now.

10 short hairstyles with hair straightening.

Many people would like to try a ‘haircut’ but have kept their hair long due to strong frizz and wavy hair.

For these people, we recommend hair straightening.

Our salon offers soft and supple straight hair.

Even if you have short hair, we can provide a design that fits well without being unnatural, so please check out this article!

Are straightened and short hair prone to failure?

A number of people fail to straighten their hair when making it short.

Straightening short hair is more difficult than straightening long hair, so the result is inevitably stiff and the ends are too long and unnatural.

Common examples of short hair straightening failures are,

  • The top of the hair becomes flat
  • Hair ends become tousled
  • A ‘wiggy’ look
  • The root of the hair is not straightened
  • The root of the hair is not straightened.

You want to try shortening your hair, but you are inevitably worried about the risk of these failures.

If you have a good hair stylist and a hair salon, you can greatly reduce the risk of the above-mentioned mistakes.

This will allow you to try more hair designs that suit you, so it is very important to choose the right salon and hairdresser.

Can you create roundness in short hair with a hair straightener?

One of the most frequently discussed cases among customers is that if you make hair straightening on short hair, it becomes tousled and you can’t make it look round, can you? This is a common question.

For short hair, there are ways to give the hair a natural rounded look depending on the chemicals used and the strength of the iron.

If you have short hair and don’t want it to be tousled and straight, don’t worry.

But not every salon uses that method, so ironing work and chemical selection is very important.

Can a short wolf-like style be achieved with hair straightening?

Many people want to try the short wolf-like hairstyles that are so popular at the moment, but feel that straightening their hair might make it look unnatural.

Wolf styles are not suitable for all hair types, as they enhance the shape of the head and feature light movement at the ends of the hair.

For people who want to try short but have frizzy or wavy hair, the length and design should be adjusted based on the person’s bone structure, hair texture and facial contours.

Before going for a trendy design, be sure to consult with your hairdresser to ensure that you are not made to make a mistake.

Short bobs made with hair Japanese straight were popular in the 40s and 50s.

Many people in their 40s and 50s have their hair shortened as it loses its shine and elasticity.

At Baroque Hair and Nails, we can provide soft, straight hair by using hair improvement treatments and acidic hair straightening to give your hair shine.

This is a popular menu for customers who are in their 40s or 50s but want to look beautiful and young!

Does a straight bob with fringes make you look younger?

Straight bobs are very common with bangs, but some people really don’t want to look young.

For such people, one option is to cut the length of the straight bob into a shorter length.

Even with a straight bob, the length setting can greatly change the look and feel, and gradations and layering can also create movement, so it’s a good idea to talk to your hairdresser about the length that suits you best.

I recommend filling in the collar like in the photo to make it look compact while also creating a dynamic hair design!

How often to get straightening with short hair?

The frequency of hair straightening for short hair depends on how strong the underlying kinks are.

Generally, the frequency of hair straightening for short hair is about once every three months.

Hair straightening is very hard on the hair, so at Baroque Hair and Nails, we use original chemicals to minimize the strain on the hair.

If you have experienced your hair falling apart due to repetitive straightening, please experience our hair straightening treatment.

Hair design for straightened and short hair

The most popular straightened hairstyle for students is the short bob with black hair.

With black hair, it tends to look heavy and often fails in a cocky way.

When bobbing with black hair, care must be taken in the way the collar is cut and around the face.

After that, it is very important to adjust the overall volume of the hair and make sure that the back volume is not extremely heavy.

If you are a student or have had the experience of being unsuccessful with a straight bob with black hair, you should pay attention to the above points.

Shorter bobs are popular with people in their 30s and 40s.

Hair gradually becomes thinner and less voluminous, so setting the length short will make you look more like an adult woman.

By keeping the neck area tightly packed tight, it looks more mature.

Even with a straight bob, it is easier to create a more feminine look by cutting the ends so that they are soft and rounded.

A light-toned short bob style that looks mature.

Acid straightening can straighten bleached hair.

It is recommended for people with damaged hair or bleached hair that tends to spread.

A short bob with roundness and softness.

The overall silhouette can be cleaned up by fluffing up the areas where you want to add volume.

When you are in your 50s or 60s, you tend to rely on perms, which conversely damage your hair and result in hair designs that don’t suit the times.

Even if you are in your 50s or 60s, if you can find a hairdresser who specializes in short hair, you can have a more youthful hairstyle.

The bob is popular with people in their 20s and 30s, but by creating a beautiful line at the collar, it can be a very feminine style.

The ends of the hair should be set heavier, and the haircut should be made so that it does not become dry and shiny.

How much is Japanese straightening with short hair cut?

At Baroque hair and nails, we have many customers who want to improve their frizzy, wavy, and damaged hair.

In order to create a hairstyle that suits a straight bob, it is easy to style your hair by yourself if it has shine, texture, and manageability, and it is also easy to be appreciated by others.
