Curly Perm On 4c Hair

When you are looking for ways to style your beautiful Afro coils, you will have been told many things.

If you have been unlucky enough to have worked with a hairdresser that does not specialise in Afro hair, getting the right information about treatments that are suitable can be difficult – after all, these hairdressers will have told you that your hair is unmanageable, or that the only thing you should consider is chemical relaxants or cornrows. But what about a curly perm on 4C hair?

Is a Curly Perm on 4C Hair Safe?

When you are considering a perm for your 4C hair, it is usually a relaxer. The perm process for straight or wavy hair is a completely different process from that used on Afro hair, and to gain great curl definition from a curly perm on 4C hair you need to understand the process.

A curly perm on 4C hair is a two-step process. Firstly, natural curl is removed and then the hair is set in perm rods and a waving or reshaping lotion is applied. Because this is two steps, it is often called a double processed style. A curly perm can make your hair more prone to breakage – as we know, Afro hair is surprisingly delicate and needs knowledgeable handling to protect it. We suggest that whatever treatment you choose for your Afro hair, you need to remember your hair should be treated like fine silk – cleansed gently, detangled softly, and avoiding too-harsh chemicals.

Luckily, the curly perm process is less damaging to the hair than chemical relaxers, and in the experienced hands of our knowledgeable stylists you can rest assured that your hair will be treated as if it is our own.

Whenever you are thinking about improving your Afro hair, make sure you are focused on moisture. Keep yourself and your hair hydrated to get the best results – don’t be afraid to add mango or shea butter to your routine and invest in proper hair moisturisation.
