For nearly 10 years, I have beaten my curls into straight submission until recently when I decided to relax and enjoy the sexy, full spiral curl look. We have been noticing a gradual (almost one a week vs. 15 years without having done one!) increase in the requests for PERMS. Yes, I said perm. For years, this has been a four-letter word, but guess what folks? They’re baaaack!
American Salon Magazine named Organic Curl Systems the Best Perm for Hair 2012. Nearly 118,000 readers voted that this ammonia-free system was their pick as the best perm and Verde Salon couldn’t agree more. Replacing ammonia with Cysteamin HCL (a far gentler ingredient), is free of thioglycolates, and has added plant amino acids, this produces long-lasting curls that are soft and natural looking. Organic Curl Systems operates at a low ph (between 4.5 and 6.5 ph) virtually eliminating any damage to the hair.
Perms of the ’80s have gotten a bad reputation for frizz and damage. This isn’t the case with these perms at all. There are also different techniques to achieve the look you want or help to shorten time spent on your hair in the mornings.
A Spiral Perm makes for a beautiful curl pattern on long hair, especially when done with many different size rollers.
A Piggy-back perm is a technique which gives a tighter curl at the base of the hair and a softer curl on the ends for lift and movement.
A Root Lift perm is a technique that is meant to allow for maximum volume in the hair. If the technique is performed using large rollers, you can get the added body and texture you desire (as well as the lift) without having more curl than you want.
We are also able to perm hair on large rollers (think 2″ rollers) to soften overly curly hair.
This look is not for everyone, but if you are tired of hair with no lift, fullness, or volume this just might be the solution for you!
