WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT STAGES OF PERMING?
During the perming process, the hair structure goes through three stages to take on its new shape. It’s helpful to have an understanding of the different stages, so we’ve outlined them below:
1 – Softening
Once the perm lotion is applied, the perm lotion swells the hair cuticle layers and enters the cortex.
2 – Moulding
The perm lotion deposits hydrogen, which attaches itself to the hair structure’s disulphide bonds. The bonds are broken and become sulphide bonds. Once this happens the hair is in a state to change to the new shape of the perming rod.
3 – Fixing
This is the final stage of the perming process. Once the processing is complete and the perm lotion has been removed, a neutralising product is applied. The neutraliser removes the hydrogen created during the softening and moulding stage and adds oxygen. The broken disulphide bonds reform and the hair is fixed in the new shape.
