My first Experience: Digital Perming

Before telling you my experience I am going to share a little bit about Digital Perm...
digital perm is a perm that uses hot rods with the temperature regulated by a machine with a digital display, hence the name. The process is otherwise similar to that of a traditional perm. The name "digital perm" is copyrighted by a Japanese company, Paimore Co.Hairstylists usually call it a "hot perm."
A normal perm basically requires only the perm solution. A digital perm requires a (different) solution plus heat. This type of perm is popular in several countries, including South Korea and Japan.

My straight hair

See guys I have a very straight hair that God given to me. Well for quite sometime I get bored with my hair so straight, thin and short. So I've heard about this Digital Perming and thinking that why not give it a try for myself. But before committing to it I keep on digging about Digital perming, I found that its easy to have your hair permed because you'll never gonna need a comb.... "Not unless you try it and figure it out yourself". I also like the fact that when you don't need a comb of course your hair will look messier and I like that since I have a very thin hair. Well i think that suits my interest most because all I wanted for my hair is to have volume. If you are so in about perming and nothing will stop you from doing it then DO IT! But before anything else you have to dig about it.

A few days past after digging all that I really have done it. I went at the salon name "ArtBox Korean Salon" I have to quote that this salon is in Dumaguete City. Before deciding you get your hair permed I suggest you find a better salon preferably Korean Salon or Japanese salon if you find one.  So I tried the ArtBox Korean Salon and they are so nice to me especially the owner (I forgot to ask her name, so rude of me).. So my stylist look at my hair and ask me if I've done my hair into rebonding or relax and of course I did not. I ask her to use small rollers but she suggest medium and large so I just got for it whatever she prefer... (Note that I have short hair, shoulder level type)... Later that I sit at the chair and wrap me with the towel around my shoulder.. She put some solutions onto my hair and gently wrap it in section with the rollers. After that she grab the machine for digital perming. The machine that she uses is what its called Swing Belle (thermal Processor)  Yeah well anyway she uses a different machine unlike the other its what they called Setting Perm (ceramic rods digital perm machine). I'll show you guys..

Ceramic Rods Digital Perm Machine, everybody usually use.

On the above picture thats the typical digital perm machine salon uses.. Well to my stylist she uses different machine. I also dig in to that machine she use. The machine is kinda cute because it talks.. Look down:::

Swing Belle (Thermal Processor) My stylist used on me
As I've searched about this machine and I found that it is for coloring hair, hot oil and also for perming. Well, my worries ease a little bit.. ;)... So after heating my hair for about 30 minutes I guess, I dont remember, I really have a bad memory.. after that her assistant gave me a hot cup of tea, massage my arm and she even asked me if I want more tea. I feel so relaxed after waiting for my hair to be set and then the assistant washes my hair with conditioner alone. Squeeze out some of the excess water and go went back to the chair again. She put curl defining cream on my hair before she blower my hair. And after that from straight hair to this look....

Straight Vs. Curl... Its up to you guys!

Its all up to you my friend if what you prefer, to have a straight hair or curl hair.. Me, I prefer to try different and new things... I like my new hair though curly and messy.. I so want to thank Sunset of Goddess for giving me such information about having her hair permed and most especially the Salon who turned me this. After all that delightful experience from them I never regret any of those.

Guys! If you want some other tips about digital perming I suggest you to visit Sunset Goddess Manila .. You can find and learned a lot from her.
