The Difference Between a Perm and a Texture Wave

The Difference Between a Perm and a Texture Wave Posted on June 25, 2016

In the summer months, one hears a lot about “beach hair.” That carefree, voluminous hairstyle that looks gorgeous but simple. It gives a woman the girl-next-door look of being beautiful without having put in much effort. For those with straight hair, however, it can take a long time in the bathroom playing with sprays and pastes to get that wavy texture. It does not have to be so hard. There is a way to get those waves and still spend more hours on the beach than in the bathroom.

A Texture Wave, also known as a body wave, is a similar process to a perm but uses larger rollers. Instead of getting the tight curls of a 1980s perm or “poodle curls”, the result is more subtle, natural-looking wave without the frizz. Since it is not as tight of a curl, it can also be straightened pretty easily with a blow-dryer or straightener, giving the hair extra body. Just like a perm, a body wave will relax over time so the hair will look different in a few months than how it looks fresh out of the rollers.

To keep the original look as long as possible, it is important to moisturize the hair and keep the length the same as when you had the Texture Wave done because if it gets too much longer, it will weigh itself down and straighten the curls. A texture wave usually lasts around three months but even after the waves themselves have disappeared the texture of the hair might still feel different.

It is best to consult with your hair stylist before deciding on whether a textured wave is good for you. Texture waves can be good for those who already have natural curls that want to provide them with a bit more definition, as well as straight hair that needs a little more body or texture. They generally work best for people with fine hair. Visit website to make a consultation appointment with the hair stylists at Fusion Salon to find out if a textured wave could work for you.
