Details For: Reverse Hair Perm

Term  
Reverse Hair Perm

Definition  
The hair’s natural curl, wave, coil or overall texture pattern is genetically determined by how the hair forms in the follicles. Permed hair only alters hair which extends from the surface of the scalp but does not impact any hair below the scalp. A hair perm or permanent wave, when properly applied, chemically alters the curl and wave pattern on any hair which has already grown from the roots. Although the hair is permanently altered to change the texture, any new growth from the roots will revert back to the hair's genetic natural patterns. A reverse hair perm is performed on previously chemically permed hair in order to restore the hair to it's original hair texture (curls, waves, kinks, coils). Once a chemical perm is applied to hair the only way to reverse the effects of the perm is to wait for the hair to completely grow out from the roots or to have a reverse hair perm to reintroduce the original hair textures.

Daily Hair Tip
Choose a hairstyle that specifically suits your face shape, hair type, texture and lifestyle. Never choose a hairstyle for a popular celebrity or for the hair trend of the moment. Celebrity and fashion hair styles change rapidly leaving you with yesterday's style.
