Hair Perming Results in Hair Damage

by Shaun Damon

Most people pay a lot of attention to their hair and its appearance because of the significant impact it can have on their overall appearance. The availability and demand for hair care products is at an enormous high for this very reason and the huge range available to a normal consumer makes deciding on one particular product quite complicated. Given using a lotion on your hair will provide significantly different results from what has happened to another acquaintance's hair can make it all the more tedious and surprising.

The newer trends not only call for a person to change their hairstyle more frequently, but also to change the very color of it on a regular basis. Whenever you choose to do both, such as perm your hair as well as color it, the primary rule is to color your hair after you have permed it. This is mainly because using a color glaze on the same day as the perm will allow the cuticle layers of your hair to be more open (as a direct result of the perming process) and allow the color to penetrate more easily into the strand of hair, causing the color to last much longer. Also make sure that, if you would like to have a permanent coloration, do so no later than 10 days after your perm. If you choose to color your hair on your own at home, always perform a patch test at the beginning of the treatment in order to test your hair for any allergic reactions to the formula. If your hair is not in the healthiest condition, you may want to approach a hair care professional rather than cause some significant amount of damage by exposing already weakened hair to strong chemicals and stress.

Since the chemicals used in the creation of hair color could cause some amount of damage to your hair, it is suggested that you choose your brand very carefully. Avoid blow drying the hair but allow it to air dry completely while allowing it to retain a little moisture. The hair color you choose should have either low or no ammonia content while you should also try clarifying your hair after a long swim. When combing your hair, always choose a wide toothed comb instead of a brush while also making sure that your hair has dried out completely. Your diet plays an important role in the appearance of your hair and eating foods that are rich in protein such as chicken, fish and nuts will show noticeable benefits.
