What does a permanent do to your hair?

I want to know how it actually works.

A perm, or permanent changes the chemical makeup of the protein bonds in your hair by connecting weak bonds that are closer together in the chemical chain on your hair. This makes the hair curl, or wave, depending on the effect you're going for. Basically you're making your hair a little weaker so that it curls.

A perm uses a chemical process and rollers to give a fairly long term (a few months) curl or wave by breaking the keratin molecular bond. Some say it works best on uncolored and unprocessed hair, but I've always found newly colored hair holds a perm very well. If your hair is dry or overprocessed, you may require intensive conditioning.

They apply a chemical solution to your hair and then wrap your hair in rollers. The chemicals will help set the curl.

A permanent usually penetrates the shaft of the hair more aggressively. If done properly, a permanent should not damage your hair.

I you mean permanent hair dye then it is diffilcult to bleach when you want to color your hair to different colors. Also it is demaging hair but if you will use hair mask or balsams then effect should not be very bad. If you will do it then you will have beutiful hair.
