Curly Perm On 4c Hair

When you are looking for ways to style your beautiful Afro coils, you will have been told many things.

If you have been unlucky enough to have worked with a hairdresser that does not specialise in Afro hair, getting the right information about treatments that are suitable can be difficult – after all, these hairdressers will have told you that your hair is unmanageable, or that the only thing you should consider is chemical relaxants or cornrows. But what about a curly perm on 4C hair?

Here at Rumbie and Co, we are curl specialists. We are dedicated to helping all our clients love their curls, from the loosest waves to the coiled and kinky Afro, every curly girl (and guy) deserves to have hair they can be proud of.

We offer judgement-free advice, knowledge, and expertise to all our clients, ensuring that no matter the look and style you want, we can work with you to achieve that.

Is a Curly Perm on 4C Hair Safe?

When you are considering a perm for your 4C hair, it is usually a relaxer. The perm process for straight or wavy hair is a completely different process from that used on Afro hair, and to gain great curl definition from a curly perm on 4C hair you need to understand the process.

A curly perm on 4C hair is a two-step process. Firstly, natural curl is removed and then the hair is set in perm rods and a waving or reshaping lotion is applied. Because this is two steps, it is often called a double processed style. A curly perm can make your hair more prone to breakage – as we know, Afro hair is surprisingly delicate and needs knowledgeable handling to protect it. We suggest that whatever treatment you choose for your Afro hair, you need to remember your hair should be treated like fine silk – cleansed gently, detangled softly, and avoiding too-harsh chemicals.

Luckily, the curly perm process is less damaging to the hair than chemical relaxers, and in the experienced hands of our knowledgeable stylists you can rest assured that your hair will be treated as if it is our own.

Whenever you are thinking about improving your Afro hair, make sure you are focused on moisture. Keep yourself and your hair hydrated to get the best results – don’t be afraid to add mango or shea butter to your routine and invest in proper hair moisturisation.

Rumbie & Co curl experts offer comprehensive consultations, understanding your curl needs and working with you to deliver great curls in a creative, relaxed and safe atmosphere.

Hair should be clean, detangled and dry before the appointment as curls are distorted when the hair is wet. An extra charge may be incurred for detangling and rescheduling in other cases.

If there are any hair extensions, cornrows or plaits, please remove them prior to the appointment. Alternatively you can book for an extension removal prior to your desired services.

We endeavour to have your hair done within the stipulated time frame, however, with curly hair there are variables beyond our control that could extend your time in the salon.

1. Seeing that curly hair is the new phenomenon for most of us, some of our patrons require TLC and our team endeavours to ensure all patrons have their questions answered and are set to win on their curly journey.

2. With varying hair textures come varying time allocations for drying too.

3. As some of our curl specialists are developing their growing skills, more time may be needed to perfect your style.

For this, we ask that you are patient with us. If time is of the essence, we recommend booking in with our more experienced specialists.

Regardless of the feedback, we welcome your highlights (pun intended) on how well we have executed anything as well as growlights on what areas we can develop and how so we can work at being the curl salon you envision.

Together, we can figure this out.

While we strive to deliver to your expectations and beyond, we do need your help in this regard. This means, we would love for you to talk to us before, during and after your service. If you didn’t feel comfortable during your time in the salon, please feel free to call or email [email protected]

We would arrange a consultation with a stylist of your choice, in this way we can find a way forward. You can also be booked in with another curl specialist of your preference based on your needs.

If your curls appear looser than usual after a service, the product may be too heavy for your curls. Please don’t be upset, your hair can be washed again and styled using a lighter product and voila just like that your curls are bouncy again. Please note, no one head of hair is the same and there are definitely options

You can ALWAYS speak up. This is a revolution. We can partner well together with communication. If you are not understanding anything, in pain, uncomfortable about anything, please speak up.
