Cold Perm Process
A. The chemical that is used in hair bleach is not compatible with the chemical that is used in any perm. Not only the curls will not hold, it will cause severe damage, most likely resulting in breakage. We do not recommend any client who has lighten their hair with bleach to get any perm.
If you have any question regarding the previous chemical procedure that has been done to your hair, we do recommend coming in for a consultation first.

Digital Perm, you could just use a regular blow dryer and your curls will stay the same when it’s dry.
