Transfer Perm:

Do you have fine hair? When you get a curly perm does your hair stay in tight ringlets forever, yet when you get a body perm does it seems to disappears in 3 or 4 days? If you know these symptoms and still want a more open curl, or a body perm that will last in your hair ...  you have been  looking for a "Transfer Perm!" You can pick:

  1. a quarter size diameter transfer curl for "just body;"

  2. a smaller 5-cent size diameter transfer if you want just a "little wave";   or

  3. a dime size diameter transfer if you want to put an "open curl"  in your fine hair

Like Double-Mint Gum  it's like 2, yes 2, I say 2 --- two-perms in one. (Sorry about that folks, but it is true, accurate and hopefully as a fairly easy way to help you picture the transfer perm.)  The transfer perm takes twice as long to do and will cost almost twice as much as regular perm. If you recognize the symptoms we know you have spent your money and ended up too curly, then  ..  tried again only to see your body wave slide away. Or worse yet, you've been left with over processed dry hair because someone incorrectly thought the perm solution could "force in" the wave.  The transfer perm has solved these fine hair problems for many of our "fine hair" clients, providing the lasting the curl  size they were looking for without over processing their hair.

The permanent waving process: Most permanent waving happens in a 4 steps:

Step #1 is the mechanical process of wrapping hair around a perm rod. Hair has a thickness (diameter) so this mechanical process causes the inside of the hair shaft to travel a shorter distance then the outside diameter of the hair shift. The result is an internal stress (or pulling) of the cross bonds inside of the hair itself.

Step #2 is a chemical process where the cysteine bonds inside the hair are changed to cystine. When these cross-link bonds are broken the internal, cross link "pulling" (caused by wrapping the hair in step #1) is released and the bonds "shift" to a new position relieving the stress caused by the wrapping of the hair around the perm rod.

Step #2a This often forgotten step allows time for more cross bonds to shift inside the hair shaft before going to step #3. It is sometimes called "Air Neutralizing."  Several things happen when you "air-neutralize;" a- you allow more time for the cross bonds to shift. b- you allow water to evaporate out of the hair so the hair "tightens around the perm rod, forcing more of the un-locked cross-bonds to shift. c- air starts to reform the bonds in their new position before the neutralizer is applied. d- the neutralizer is not diluted by water on and in the hair itself.

Step #3 the chemical "re-hardening" process happens when the "neutralizer" is applied. This chemical, oxidation- reaction cause the cystine bonds are changed back to cystein. This "re-hardening" of the internal hair structure happens while the hair is still wrapped around the perm rod. However because of stem #2 the internal hair stress no longer exists. This is an oxidation process, and the permanent wave manufacturers tell us that 80% of the cross bonds are hardened in their new position. (Changed back from cystine to cysteine.)

Step #4 is the oxidation of all of the remaining bonds. (The  20% not reformed n step #3.) This is accomplished by time and the normal exposure of the hair to oxygen in the atmosphere. Simply put you let you hair dry. this helps hold the curl in the curled position. Then you simply wait 72 hours so that nature can take its course and oxidize the remaining 20% of the cross bonds missed in step #3.

Steps #2a and  #4 is particularly important for folks with fine hair who want to insure the most curl is "locked into" their hair. Often, and especially with fine hair, the re-hardening of  the last 20% of the cross links makes the difference between "seeing the wave" from the perm and not seeing the wave from the perm. Having a nice perm or letting the perm just "slip away."
