what is the body wave holder

A body wave holder is a perm that uses hot rods with the temperature regulated by a machine with a digital display. The process is otherwise similar to that of a traditional perm. The name "body wave holder" is copyrighted by a chinese company, Hairstylists usually call it a "hot perm."

A normal perm basically requires only the perm solution. A hot perm requires a (different) solution plus heat. This type of perm is popular in several countries, including China, South Korea and Japan


what is the difference between a normal perm and a hot perm

The biggest difference between other perms and a hot perm is the shape and the texture of the wave created by the digital process. A normal perm, or "cold perm," makes the wave most prominent when the hair is wet, and loose when it is dry. The hair tends to look moist and as locks. A hot perm makes the wave most prominent when the hair is dry, and loose when it is wet. Therefore you can create the dry and curly look of the curl iron or the hot perms thermally recondition the hair, though the chemicals and processing are similar to a straight perm. The hair often feels softer, smoother, and shinier after a hot perm


How to Styling after hot perm

A cold perm makes the hair most wavy when it is wet, so to put the styling gel/foam when it is wet and air-drying it makes the wave most prominent. A hot perm makes the hair wavy when it is dry, so you just need to dry it with a blow dryer, and use your hand to make the curl. Styling is very easy, and if you set the curl in the morning, at the end of the day when the wave loosens, you can revive the curl just by curling it with your finger.
