Sink or Swim Test
Float a clean, dry hair in a bowl of water. After a moment, does it stay floating atop the water or does it sink under? Floating hair indicates healthy porosity, which means the hair is healthy enough to receive a chemical service.
Hair under the water is too porous and should not be waved. Remove the hair from the water and towel dry it. Now you are ready to perform the IT test.
Internal Tension (IT) Test
Take the strand of hair between the thumb and forefinger of each hand, about 1 ½-2 inches apart. Slowly bring your thumbs toward each other. The hair will form an arc. As you continue to move your hands together, the hair will suddenly twist and form a loop.
THE SIZE OF THE LOOP INDICATES THE SIZE OF ROD OR TOOL YOU WILL NEED TO USE TO SHIFT THE BONDS IN THAT HAIR.

Resistant - Full Cycle pH 8.5 

A buffered alkaline perm with the strength that those resistant clients need. Full Cycle minimizes the possibility of alkaline damage and reduces cuticle lifting by using dryer heat to process rather than a higher percentage of ammonia. Expect a very firm, long-lasting wave pattern that will withstand daily use of thermal appliances or weekly finishing.

  • For use on extremely resistant and resistant (normal and fine) hair. Full Cycle is an excellent choice for coarse, gray, long virgin hair or hair with a glassy, tight cuticle.
  • Not recommended for tinted, fragile, highlighted or double-processed hair
  • Techniques that work well with this perm include Conventional, Spiral, Roller and Reverse perming techniques and those requiring jumbo rods.

Processing guidelines:

Process under preheated, hot dryer. Begin Test Curls at 15 minutes. Average timing is 20-25 minutes.
