A Brazilian body wave hair can be formed with the help of perming. Perm is an abbreviation for “permanent wave”. The ideal Brazilian body wave weaves can be formed with the help of a steam perm. You can buy normal hair extensions and make the perms in them to get a Brazilian body wave weave. The wave in the Brazilian body wave hair is made using chemicals which break the existing bonds in the hair and re-form them.
The washed hair is then enfolded in special perm rods. A waving lotion is applied to act as a catalyst and begin the chemical reaction which ends up in softening the inner hair structure. The softened hair moulds around the perm rod’s shape. Perms soften the hair, add a look of volume, and impart bounce to hair, thus giving it a glamorous and posh look. Heat speeds up this process of waving, but care should be taken to avoid overheating.
An effective perm takes over two hours and settles down after one full day. It lasts for about 3-6 months. Creating a perm in the hair extensions to form a Brazilian body wave hair is similar to that done for natural hair. One thing to remember is that perms can be created only on natural human hair extensions, because synthetic hair is easily damaged by any kind of heat treatment.
