A trip to the salon for a professional perm is expensive. You can save both time and money by perming your own hair at home. Before going to your local drugstore to buy a home perm kit, however, there are some points to consider:
Now that you've determined the condition of your hair, have chosen a hair style, decided the type of curl you want, and have chosen a perm kit, you can begin to perm your own hair. Read the instructions in the kit thoroughly before you begin. If you ask friends to help, make sure they follow the instructions completely. Follow the after-care instructions to maintain your perm. Most manufacturers recommend using specially formulated products for permed hair. Also, most perm kits list a free telephone number to call if you need to speak with a consultant about the product.
Perming your own hair doesn't have to be complicated or difficult. Remember to research exactly the look you want, buy a good product, and follow the directions perfectly to achieve a great result.
