Ideal for all hair types in regards to ethnicity.

Here are some tips to maintain the Perfect Wave Perm:

  • Shampoo and condition your hair with products formulated for curls or use Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner
  • After washing, don’t rub your hair with a towel, only pat it gently
  • For styling, apply Leave-In Conditioner and next use Curl Cream focusing on the mid-shaft through the ends and a small amount close to the root.
  • For volume, you may use a volumizing product of your choice, working mainly on the roots through the mid-shaft.
  • Important: while applying the products to achieve the desired look you may scrunch hair to enhance the wave or twist individual hair strands to get a more loose wave.
  • Last: leave your hair to air-dry or use the Diffuser to enhance the wave and create more volume. For extra volume diffuse your hair bending over and tilt your head facing the ground.
  • For second day styling – lightly spritz your hair with water, scrunch to re-activate your curls.
  • Throughout the day we suggest not brushing or running your hands through it as it may cause frizz.


Perm treatments have been improved over the past 10 years through new technologies and less-harsh formulas, furthermore they will not damage your hair.
