The ability to change the hairs natural texture is a vital one in hair style creation and management. The perming process works by winding the hair around a tool (a roller or rod) and then applying the first stage Waving Lotion to the hair.
This lotion enters the hair and breaks the internal bonds, a second solution (a neutraliser) is then added to re-connect the bonds into the new shape and thus create the permanent curl or texture.
Perming hair not only creates (wash and wear) curl and texture but also alters the memory of the natural hair so blow-dries, roller setting and styling (applied) will remain in the hair between washes and without flopping or dropping.
In addition, naturally curly or frizzy hair can be permed to create a controlled and uniform curl that requires little maintenance. Pin Up Original Full Head is a home solution if you wish to perm all hair lengths.
The home kit is ideal if you have longer hair and wish to create a cascading ‘wash and wear’ curl effect or if you are looking for strong hold and style support (when blow-drying and roller setting) to most hair lengths. On longer lengths results from the Pin Up Original Full Head can last up to one year.
The Pin Up Brand was established in 1945 and for nearly 70 years has been helping people achieve classic style and texture services safely at home. From durable long term permanent curl results to flexible style and vintage looks or home colour application, Pin Up has become a brand synonymous with hair freedom.
Shampoo hair and towel dry. Apply waving lotion insuring the skin around the hairline is protected with petroleum jelly and a strip of cotton wool. Leave to develop for the required time - usually 10 minutes. Rinse Hair, leaving the perming rods in place. Fix the applicator pipe to the Neutraliser bottle and shake well until it forms a rich foam. Again protect the skin around the hairline as before. Leave a little surplus for final style touching. When applied wait for 10 minutes. Remove perming rods, then gently tussle in the remaining foam with the finger tips and allow to set for a further 3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and blow and style as desired.

Avoid contact with eyes, and rinse immediately. If contact does occur rinse with copious amounts of water and seek medical advice without delay. For external use only.
