My hair has been straight since I was young. Due to the ever-changing weather, the chemicals I apply on to my hair (hair polish, gel, and hair dye), stress, careless brushing, ironing and curling, my hair was damaged. Fly-away hair were easily spotted and dramatically increased in number. So when I’ve grown tired of looking at my damaged hair, I decided to get a perm. First, I tried the regular perm. More than a year after, from the visible curls, my hair becomes a little wavy. I was still fond of curls then. So, I tried digital perm or digi-perm for short. I loved the digital perm more than the regular perm. Why? I will give you the differences between the two.
|It is also called cold perm.||It‘s also known as digi-perm or hot perm.|
|It only uses the perming solution.||It uses a special perming solution and hot rods with the temperature controlled by a machine.|
|The curls are small waves and are most prominent when the hair is wet.||Curls are loose waves and become more visible when hair has dried.|
|Normal perm tends to make hair dry and feel coarse.||It reconditions the hair thermally. Hair feels softer and smoother.|
|The treatment is cheap and is done in a short time.||The procedure is costly and requires more time to finish.|
|Styling solutions should be applied while the hair is wet.||Styling is very easy. You can let it air-dry and just use your fingers to style it.|
|It is best suited for naturally smooth hair.||It is best suited for coarse hair.|
I just had my hair cut into a short bob two months ago. When my hair grows back, I will definitely have another digital perm again.
