3 ObjectivesList the factors of a hair analysis for chemical texture servicesExplain the physical and chemical actions that take place during permanent wavingList and describe the various types of permanent waving solutionsLEARNING MOTIVATION (WHY?)Salons around the world agree that permanent waving (also known as texture services) is one of the most popular services provided today. Because it is a service in such demand, you will be well-served by learning the various techniques and practicing the skills until they are mastered. Very primitive attempts at permanent waving were made by the early Egyptian and Roman civilizations. Egyptian men weaved their beards between sticks, applied mud, and then basked in the sun for 1 or 2 days. The Roman and Egyptian women were known to also apply mud to their hair and wrap it on crudely made wooden rollers and then bake it in the sun. They may have had curl for a while, but the results were, of course, not permanent. Can you even imagine having mud baked in your hair? We should all be thankful we live in the 21st century.We will learn more about the modern methods of permanent waving during this unit of study. It is important to keep in mind that a properly completed perm provides many valuable benefits to both the client and the stylist. Perming will promote longer lasting styles and make hair more manageable for the client at home. Perms add volume and fullness for styling and especially help hair with a soft, fine texture. On the other hand, the perm will create greater control of hair that is coarse, wiry, and hard to manage. You can see why this service is so popular with male and female clients of all ages.

21 Permanent Waving Physical change – wrapping on rods Chemical change – perm solution and neutralizerCurl size determines rodPERMANENT WAVING: This is a two-step process. The first part is the physical change caused by wrapping the hair on rods.The second part involves the chemical change caused by the waving solution and neutralizer.THE PERM WRAP
22 Concave Straight Long Short Perm Tools - RodsConcaveStraightLongShortPERM TOOLS: Come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and can be combined with different wrapping methods to produce a wide range of results.ROD TYPES
23 Soft bender rods Loop rods Other Perm RodsSoft bender rodsLoop rodsSOFT BENDER RODS: Usually about 12 inches long with a uniform diameter along entire length. They are soft foam rods with a stiff inner wire that allows them to take on a variety of shapes. Can be used with a croquignole or spiral technique.LOOP OR CIRCLE RODS: Usually about 12 inches long with a uniform diameter; ideal for wrapping extremely long hair. When fastened together, they form a circle.
24 Double flat wrap Single flat wrap Bookend wrap End PapersDouble flat wrapSingle flat wrapBookend wrapEND PAPERS: Also known as end wraps. They are absorbent papers used to control the ends of the hair when wrapping. When wrapping, papers should extend beyond ends of hair to prevent “fishhooks.”
25 Sectioning Panels Base sections SECTIONING Panels. Size, shape, and direction of panels vary based on type of wrapping pattern and type and size of tool being used.Base sections. Panels are divided into subsections called base sections. One tool is placed on each base section; size of base section is usually length and width of tool being used.
26 Base Placement and Direction On-baseHalf-baseOff-baseBase directionBASE PLACEMENT: Refers to the position of the rod in relation to its base section; determined by the angle at which hair is wrapped.
27 Croquignole Spiral Piggyback Wrapping TechniquesCroquignoleSpiralPiggybackWRAPPING TECHNIQUESCroquignole. Hair strands are wrapped from ends to the scalp in overlapping layers. Curl is tighter on ends and gets larger nearer the scalp.Spiral. Hair is wound from ends to the scalp; some tools, however, allow wrapping from scalp to ends. The angle at which the hair is wrapped causes the hair to spiral along the length of the tool, like the grip on a tennis racquet. This technique produces a more uniform curl from scalp to ends. Hair is wrapped at an angle other than perpendicular to the length of the rod.Piggyback. In extra-long hair, hair is wrapped on one rod from scalp to midway down hair shaft. Another rod is used to wrap remaining hair strand.
28 Chemistry of Perm Waving Reduction reaction: addition of hydrogen or removal of oxygenDisulfide bond joins sulfur atomsSolution breaks a disulfide bondSulfur atoms attach to solution hydrogenOnce broken, polypeptide chains form in new shapeCHEMISTRY OF PERM WAVINGREDUCTION REACTIONSolution softens and swells hair. This raises the cuticle and permits solution to penetrate cortex. Once in the cortex, solution breaks the disulfide bonds through a chemical reaction called reduction. A reduction reaction involves either the addition of hydrogen or the removal of oxygen. In permanent waving, the reaction is a result of the addition of hydrogen.Disulfide bond joins a sulfur atom on one polypeptide chain with a second sulfur atom on a neighboring polypeptide chain.Solution breaks a disulfide bond by adding a hydrogen atom to each of the sulfur atoms in the disulfide bond.Sulfur atoms attach to the hydrogen from the solution, breaking their attachment to each other. Once broken, polypeptide chains are able to be re-shaped into new curl.

30 Reducing Agents Thio compounds Solution strength Thioglycolic acid Ammonium thioglycolatePerm pHREDUCING AGENTS: Found in all permanent wave solutions.Thio compounds. Commonly referred to as thio. Thioglycolic acid is the most common. It is a colorless liquid with a strong, unpleasant odor. It provides the hydrogen that causes the reduction in permanent waving solutions.Strength of solutions. Determined by the concentration of thio. Stronger solutions have a higher concentration of thio with a greater number of hydrogen atoms. The greater the hydrogen atoms available, the more disulfide bonds are broken.Thioglycolic acid. An acid that does not swell hair or penetrate the cortex; therefore, manufacturers have to add an alkalizing agent. When added, a new chemical called ammonium thioglycolate is formed and this is alkaline.Ammonium thioglycolate (ATG). The main active ingredient or reducing agent in alkaline perms.Perm pH. Second factor in overall strength of permanent waving solution. Coarse hair with strong, resistant cuticle layer may need additional swelling and penetration. The pH of solution should correspond to the resistance, strength, and porosity of the cuticle layer.
33 Types of Permanent Waves Alkaline waves or cold wavesUse ammonium thioglycolatepH between 9.0 and 9.6Acid wavesUse glyceryl monothioglycolatepH between 4.5 and 7.0Require heat to speed processingTYPES OF PERMANENT WAVESAlkaline waves or cold waves. First developed in 1941 using ammonium thioglycolate (ATG); became known as cold waves since they process at room temperature without adding heat; usually have a pH between 9.0 and 9.6.True acid waves. Introduced in early 1970s; usually have a pH of 4.5 to 7.0 and require heat to speed processing. The main active ingredient is glyceryl monothioglycolate (GMTG), which is acid and has a low pH. (GMTG is the primary reducing agent in all modern acid waves, but may not be the only reducing agent). Acid waves process more slowly and do not produce as firm a curl as alkaline waves.They have a pH below 7.0.A pH of 5.0 is neutral for hair. Because pH is calculated on a logarithmic scale, a pH of 7.0 is 100 times more alkaline than the pH of hair; therefore, acid waves can swell the hair.
34 Acid-Balanced Waves pH of 7.8 to 8.2 Three components Wave solution Activator (contains GMTG)NeutralizerAcid-balanced waves and components. Most have a pH between 7.8 and 8.2, which means they are not true acid waves; modern acid waves are acid-balanced and process more quickly and produce firmer curls than true acid waves.
35 Other Types of Waves Exothermic Endothermic Ammonia-free Thio-free Low-pHUse sulfates, sulfites, and bisulfitesEXOTHERMIC AND COMPONENTS: These perms create an exothermic chemical reaction that heats up the solution and speeds up the processing. They use permanent waving thio solution. Activator contains an oxidizing agent (usually hydrogen peroxide), and mixing oxidizer with solution causes a rapid release of heat and an increase of temperature of the solution. Heat increases the rate of the chemical reaction and reduces the processing time.ENDOTHERMIC WAVES: These perms are activated by an outside heat source, usually a conventional hood dryer; will not process properly at room temperature.AMMONIA-FREE WAVES: Main ingredient does not evaporate as readily as ammonia. Aminomethylpropanol (AMP) and monoethanolamine (MEA) are examples of alkanolamines that are used as substitutes for ammonia. Odor is reduced but damage can still occur.THIO-FREE WAVES: These perms use a reducing agent other than ammonium thioglycolate such as cysteamine or mercaptamine, which are thio compounds. At high concentration, the reducing agents in thio-free can be as damaging as thio.LOW-pH WAVES: Not very popular as they are weak and do not provide a firm curl; usually marketed as body waves.
36 Average processing time Overprocessed hair Underprocessed hair PERMANENT WAVE PROCESSINGMost processing takes place in first 5 to 10 minutes.Additional time allows polypeptide chains to shift to new configuration.OVERPROCESSED HAIRDoes not mean overly curly. If too many disulfide bonds are broken, hair will be too weak to hold a firm curl.May be completely straight. Hair at scalp is usually stronger than ends so overprocessed hair is usually curlier at the scalp and straighter at the ends. UNDERPROCESSED HAIR: If too few disulfide bonds are broken, hair will not be sufficiently softened and will not hold the desired curl. Hair at scalp is usually not as curly as the ends; more processing will make it curlier.
37 Perm SelectionSELECTING THE RIGHT TYPE OF PERM: NOTE: Refer to Table 18-2, which lists the common types of permanent waves and the advantages and disadvantages of each. Point out that these are general guidelines only.CAUTION: Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and the MSDS for each product for accurate, detailed product information.
39 Perm Waving Neutralization Stage two: Rebuilds disulfide bondsPost-perm hair careSTAGE TWO: Waving solution breaks disulfide bonds by adding hydrogen atoms to sulfur atoms in the disulfide bonds.Neutralization rebuilds disulfide bonds by removing extra hydrogen atoms. Hydrogen atoms attract to oxygen in neutralizer and release their bond with sulfur atoms and join with the oxygen. Each oxygen atom joins with two hydrogen atoms to rebuild one disulfide bond and make one molecule of water. Water is removed in the final rinse and the disulfide bonds form in their new curled position.

42 Summary and ReviewWhat is the difference between end bonds and side bonds?Describe three types of side bondsSUMMARY AND REVIEWHair structure has a significant impact on the physical and chemical actions that occur in permanent waving. Proper hair and scalp analysis as well as a thorough client consultation must be completed prior to giving a perm service. Hair condition, texture, length, porosity, elasticity, and so forth will affect the rod size and products you choose for perming. Depending on the client’s desired results, you will choose one of many products and wrapping patterns.Let’s review.
