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.

Acid perm FAQs.

I’ve put together a brief list of questions we often get asked by customers, for your reference!

Can acid perms be applied to fringes?

A. I can do acid perms on my fringes with no problem at all!

Can bleached hair be acid permed?

A. Bleached hair is not suitable for perms as it has lost its strength, but depending on the condition, acid perms can be used. Consult with your hairdresser.

Can acidic perms be done on frizzy hair?

A. And for those with frizzy hair who want to balance their curls with an acid perm!

Can I straighten my hair after an acid perm?

A. If you want to straighten your hair after an acid perm, you can straighten it.

Does acid perm damage hair?

A. The treatment uses chemicals, so the load on the hair is not zero, but curls can be created with minimal damage.

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.

10 reasons why pink hair colour is so popular

Pink colour becomes instantly popular in spring!

It is also sometimes called cherry blossom colour, but have you ever tried pink colour before?

Whether you’ve done it before or are thinking of trying it out for the first time, we’d like to introduce you to the various points you should know before trying the pink colour.

Pink colour tends to look gaudy, but there are colours that suit both students and working people!

I hope you will refer to this article and give it a try!

5 characteristics of the pink colour

What are the characteristics of pink hair colour are

Can express cuteness and femininity.

Pink is a popular colour for expressing femininity and cuteness. Pink hair colour is popular among women because it can express such an image.

Gives a pop and bright impression

Pink hair colour gives a pop and bright impression compared to other colours. In particular, brighter pink colours emphasise this feature.

Gives a softer impression

Pink gives a softer impression than other colours, making pink hair colour suitable for creating a softer hairstyle.

Multiple shades

Pink comes in a variety of shades, including light pink, dusty pink and rose pink. This allows you to choose the pink colour that suits you best.

Contains ingredients that repair the damage

In recent years, pink hair colour may contain ingredients that repair the damage.

This has the advantage that the hair can be repaired while it is being coloured.

Top 5 most popular pink colours

Popular shades of pink hair colour can change depending on the time of year and trends, but in general the most popular shades are as follows

Medium pink.

One of the most popular pink shades is a medium pink colour that is neither too light nor too dark. It is favoured by women of all ages as it gives a mature impression without being too sweet.

Rose gold.

A mix of pink and gold, this colour is popular for its calm impression. Its metallic sheen gives it an elegant and glamorous impression.

Dusty pink

A slightly ashy, dusky pink colour is popular. It gives a calm impression and therefore a mature and cool atmosphere.

Lavender pink

A pale purplish pink, a mix of lavender and pink, is popular. It gives a gentle impression and therefore creates a hair colour that is both pretty and feminine.

Bubblegum pink.

This colour is popular for its strong bright pink colour and pop impression. Because it creates a bright and glamorous atmosphere, it goes well with fashion and make-up and is popular among young women.

Causes of pink colour failures.


There are many cases where people have been pink-coloured but have been unsuccessful on social networks and online.

Here are some examples

Severely damaged hair.

If the hair is excessively damaged, the dye may not soak into the hair evenly.

It is important to treat the hair well before dyeing to protect it from damage. An insufficient amount of dye may not allow the dye to soak into the hair evenly.

Insufficient amount of colourant applied.

The amount of dye applied should be adjusted according to the length and density of the hair. If the hair is originally dark, the pink colour may not come out well. To lighten the hair, bleaching should be carried out if necessary.

Sparse base hair colour.

If the hair is unevenly coloured, the dye may not soak in evenly. To ensure even hair colour, the hair may need to be bleached evenly before the dye is applied.

Mistake in the chosen colourant.

If the dye is chosen incorrectly, it may not be possible to achieve the desired colour. The pink colour can be achieved by selecting the right dye.

These are some of the possible causes of pink hair colour failure.

Consult and consult your hairdresser at the hairdresser’s before going for pink colour.

Fading of pink colour

Pink hair colour is one of the colours that generally fades easily. The speed and degree of colour fading depend on the brand and type of colourant, the condition of the hair before application and the frequency and method of hair washing.

Pink hair colour fades gradually with each wash. Colour fading can also be accelerated by external factors such as sunlight, heat from the hairdryer, swimming pools and seawater.

To make pink hair colour last longer, it is recommended to wash hair less frequently and use shampoos and treatments specially designed to prevent colour fading. It is also important to actively use hair care products such as hair oil and hair masks to protect the hair from damage.

How to make pink colour last longer

Pink hair colour often fades relatively faster than other hair colours.

This is due to the relatively shallow penetration of pink dye molecules into the cuticle layer of the hair.

Colour fading can be caused by washing the hair, UV radiation, chlorinated swimming pools or sea water, hot air, etc.

To maintain pink hair colour for as long as possible, it is recommended to use special colour shampoos and conditioners.

These products may contain dyes that replenish hair colour.

It may also help to use sunscreen hair oil to protect the hair from heat and UV rays.

Furthermore, if the pink hair colour has faded, there are colourants that can be used in beauty salons to replenish the colour only, which should be considered.

Recommended hairstyles that suit pink colour

If you would like to try pink colour but are not sure what colour or hair style would suit you, please take a look at the results of customers who have had pink colour done at our salon.

Pink colour x earring colour

his customer had her earring colour bleached only around the ears, and the area around the ears was finished with a strong orangey-pink colour!

The colour is layered around the face, so the colour from the face to the ends is very stylish.

Pink colour and balayage highlights

This customer has balayage highlights for a three-dimensional look.

The base is a dark pink and the highlights look brighter, making it a very gorgeous and innovative design that looks solid.

Pink colour x point colour

This customer has an eccentric hair design with a bold pink colour only on the ends.

This is a foreign customer, so the design is full of individuality, but it looks good on Japanese people too, so why not give it a try?

Pink colour and brown

If you feel that the pink colour is a little eccentric or gaudy, you can create an elegant and shiny pink-brown colour by mixing it with brown tones.

Pink colour and grey hair dyeing

Many people who dye their hair grey seem to have a very dark and heavy colouring.

The amount of grey hair is going to increase, so keeping a lighter tone is recommended for people who are dyeing their hair grey, as it makes their hair look shiny!

Can I self-serve the pink colour?

There are many pink colours available on the market.

Many people have probably tried them before, especially foam colour, which is easy to use on your own.

However, the colourants sold on the market are made with stronger chemicals, so they cause more damage to the hair, so the colour fades faster and there is a high possibility of unevenness depending on the degree of damage to the colour.

If you want to do it yourself, part your hair firmly using a clip, apply a generous amount of colour to achieve the ideal colour, and be careful about leaving the bright colour with bleach for a long time.

If you want to get a good, beautiful pink colour, make sure you go to a hairdresser.

How much does the pink colour cost?

The price of pink colour varies greatly depending on whether bleaching is used or not.

If the colour is not bleached, the time required for a single application of colourant is short, but if bleaching is used for high tones, the price will vary because of the additional time required for bleaching to lighten the colour and then adding the colour.

Also, when one-point colour is applied, such as inner or earring colour, the price is lower because there are fewer bleaching areas.

The price depends on the level of the stylist and the design, so it is very important to consult the salon and your stylist once!
