Q & A
What is the Digital Perm?


A digital perm is a new technique of creating a shiny and bouncy wave to your hair.
As a new trend-setting hairstyling treatment, the digital perm uses temperature controlled rods that are all powered by a machine with a digital display(hence the name).
The biggest difference between other perms techniques and the digital perm is the shape and texture of the wave created.
A normal perm is known for creating very tight curls which were very popular in the 1980s and makes the waves more prominent when the hair is wet.

A digital perm creates the wave as if you have used a curling iron and makes the wave more prominent when the hair is dry against a normal perm.
Digital perms also thermally recondition the hair which is a similar process to a straightening perm. Your hair will often feel softer, smoother and shinier after digital perm treatment if you don't have any other chemical process.
How can I style my hair?

A digital perm makes the hair wavy when it is dry, so you must blow-dry with a hairdryer and use your fingers to twist the curls as it dries. Styling is very easy and if you set your curls in the morning, your style will maintain all day and give you loose waves look. You can also revive your curls during the day simply by twisting them with your fingers.
Will the Digital Perm damage my hair?

Digital Perm would damage your hair to some extent which depends
on the current condition of your hair. Digital Perm involves chemical treatments and the heating process, though its gentle thermal reconditions your hair, leaving it smooth and shiny.

How long does the process take?

It normally takes approximately 3 hours, depending on your hair condition, length and density. Your hair may have to be cut beforehand so that Digital Perm would create nicer and cleaner waves.

How long does the wave/curl last for?

It also depends on the condition of your hair and the style that you want to achieve.
If the hair condition is good then it normally would last around 3 to 6 months.

Does the Digital Perm worl on bleached hair?

By using a solution for highly damaged hair, it is possible to do a digital perm on bleached hair but the results will not be as nice/good as unbleached hair.It will be rough texture after Digital Perm.

Is it suitable for short hair?

Digital perm is normally suitable for medium to long hair. If there is not enough length, the digital perm will not be able to create very big waves.

Does the Digital Perm give extra volume from the roots?

Digital Perm gives little volume to the root of hair. It cannot be applied too close to your scalp for the safety reasons because of its use of heated rods.

Can I have permanent colour and Digital Perm done at the same time?

We don’t recommend applying both at the same time. However, semi-permanent colour is applicable and permanent colour can be applied only for the root touch-up. It doesn’t give much damage to your hair in this way.

How often can I have Digital Perm done?

It depends on your hair condition. Digital perm normally lasts for 3 to 6 month

Can I straighten my hair with iron after Digital Perm?
