amino acids
Current perm wrap service only alters
Some home haircoloring products contain ________ that are not compatible with permanent waving
Metallic salt
Diameter of a single hair strand
Produce a tighter curl in the center, and looser curl on either side of the strand; smaller diameter in the center that increases to larger diameter on the ends
Concave rods
Concave rods
Are the most common type of perm rod
One end paper is folded in half over the hair ends like an envelope.
Bookend wrap
Uses only one end paper, placed over the top of the strand of hair being wrapped
single flat wrap
The hair is wrapped 45 degrees beyond perpendicular to its base section
On base placement
There are two basic methods of wrapping the hair around the perm rod
croquignole and spiral
Once in the cortex, the waving solution breaks the disulfide bonds through a chemical reaction called
An _____________ chemical reaction is one that absorbs heat from its surrounding
Endothermic waves
are activated by an outside heat source (hood type hair dryer)
Uses an ingredient other than ATG as the primary reducing agent
THIO-free waves
Permanents based on sulfites are very weak and do not provide a
firm curl
The first function of permanent waving (thio) neutralization is the
deactivation, or (neutralization) harding hair to new form
Neutralization of any waving lotion that remains in the hair after processing and rinsing chemical reaction involved is called
curvature perm wrap
Perm wrap in which partings and bases radiate throughout the panels to follow the curvature of the head
Using zigzag partings to divide base areas
weave technique
The neutralizer used with thio relaxers is an
oxidizing agent hydrogen peroxide
What is the active ingredient in all hydroxide relaxers
hydroxide ion
All hydroxide relaxers are very strong ___________
hydroxide relaxers most have a pH over
13 and can swell the hair up to twice its normal diameter
Thio relaxer is needed to swell the hair but it is the ____that breaks the disulfide bonds
Acid balanced waves
Not true acid waves, they have a pH between 7.8 and 8.2 and use glyceryl monthioglycolate (GNTG) as the primary reducing agent; Produces at room temperature; heat is not required; faster processing time; produces firmer curls than true acid waves.
