A perm is NOT a perm? Part V

Not only it is possible to chance the outcome of a perm by using different permingtools, but also the way hair is wond around the rollers has an effect on the resulting curls.

Normally rods are put in in nice rows behind each other, here you see the rods hanging down and even hanging over each other. The result will be nice hanging ringlets.

You can combine that technique with bigger diameter permingrods to achieve bigger ringlets.

Or thinner rods.

This winding technique works best on medium to longer hair, and yes it takes a lot of rods. I can happen that 200 or even more indivial permingrods have to be wound in the hair. These perms are usally named “spiralperms” and are more expensive then regular perms, because of the extra work that it takes.

Next month I will concentrate on curls, the reslt of perms. In the upcoming months I will also do a shoot-that-question, you can send me questions per email at j_wagemakers@yahoo.com  for that.

It is also possible to write a comment here on the blog, I can only add comments from a valid emailadres, so check your emailadres reguarly.

A perm is NOT a perm? Part III

Digital perms.

With this kind of perm the resulting curls will be less visible when the hair is wet and more when dry, with a regular perm crls are more visible in wet hair then in dry hair.

The proces of rods and chemicals is also a bit different, the chemicals with  digital perm need external heat, tat is why each rod is connected per wire  to  a computer controlled machine, thus digital. Each rod get exactly the same amount of heat that is required to get the curls as planned. Sometimes only the ens are on the permrods giving only curl in the ends.

These Digital perms started in Asia, and some salons accross Europe are offering this service now too.

Perhaps one of my many readers will go for suc a perm soon ?

A perm is NOT a perm? Part II

A happy woman getting her loops-perm.

These permingtools I have never felt on my own hair or even seen in reallife. They are flexable as benders but don’t have a metal rod inside, in fact these are hollow plastic tubes. At one ende there is a plug to make the roller into a circle.

If you search for “spiral perm” on the internet you will see these kind of rollers being used, who can tell me what these are called ?

I find it very interesting tat there are so many different ways of doing curls, many different types of rollers and windings.

Who know that all of these things will be done more and more over the next years in salons.

A perm is NOT a perm? Part I

Not all perms are the same, using other perming tools or using other type of windingpattern there are lots of different ways to reshape hair.

Here we see benders being used, sometimes called Flexwickler or Papailotten. Inside the foamroller is a metal rod that retain the shape when you bend the bender. they have used each bender to create a spiral curl, so the endresult will give some nice hanging ringlets.

First I ws not too intrested in benders but for a good orice I got 24 of them in several sizes, after playing with these 24 I decided to get more and now I have a full spectrum of these benders in lots of colors and sizes, perhaps you like to see me in benders? That is possible ! In realtime over webcam per Skype. Send me an email and perhaps we see each other soon.
