What is the last step in this perm? Sometimes it's chemical, sometimes its conditioning.

I'm assuming you are talking about the neutralizing solution. If you don't apply it, your hair can be dull and/or porous.

The last step is removing the rods from the hair. Surely you didn't leave them in the hair ( Ha Ha, again). Just before that would be rinsing the neutralizer from the hair. If you failed to do this, no serious consequences should be expected. Prior to that would be applying the neutralizer. If you failed to apply the neutralizer, different things could happen. You could be left with little or no curl. Or if for some reason you thorough rinsed the wave solution from the hair but left the rods in the hair for 24-48 hours, you could end up with a good curl. The hair will have gone through a natural neutralizing during that period. Not as quick or as effective as a neutralizer from a bottle, but it does work.


Most don't know that before the modern neutralizers, simple, weak hydrogen peroxide was used.
