Offers Perm Tips

Pravana’s hair color guru, Danny McKillop, offers these tips for creating a body wave using the company’s Keratin Fusion.
Always use an end wrap when using Velcro rollers with chemicals. This prevents potential “crinkled” ends. Hair must be wrapped with mild tension around the roller at least 1½ revolutions to take the shape of the roller. Test for proper processing by unwrapping the roller in the same manner that you would with a perm rod.
Use reduced water pressure when rinsing. Place a hair net over rollers before rinsing. This helps to secure rollers. Rinse for a minimum of 5 minutes. Remove hair net and carefully blot each roller thoroughly and independently. Re-wrap any roller that does not have the hair smoothly wrapped around it (hair can/may shift during rinsing).
If longer hair is wrapped around the rollers more than 3 revolutions, partially unwrap to ensure the Bonding Lotion gets to the ends of hair. Re-wrap for a 5 minute processing, no longer! Rinse for 3 minutes before removing rollers. Apply a light conditioner such as Color Ensure, Hydrating or Volumizing and rinse for 2 minutes. Towel dry and lightly mist hair with Thermal Insulator and style.
