One question we get fairly often here at Donna Bella is “Can I perm hair extensions?”
Donna Bella’s hair extensions are 100% human remy hair extensions, so they can be permed. However, they must be permed with extreme care and caution. All perms damage hair, which is why we don’t recommend perming. This is why Donna Bella offers wavy hair extensions in I-Tip hair extensions.
But if you want to try perming, here are some guidelines:
Perming always should be done by a trained, licensed stylist. Always strand test first to make sure the results will be like you want.
Doing a perm on extensions will be the fastest perm you will ever do -- under five minutes. Use a color safe perm and be careful not to over process. Use a rod that is one size smaller than the client’s natural curl -- this will help the extensions blend well. After the process is done, finish up by gently conditioning your client’s hair.
Once again, Donna Bella doesn’t recommend perming, but it is possible to perm them. Hair extensions need to be treated with special care.
