Perm Hairstyle Test! Trivia Facts Quiz - Quiz

A perm is a process in which the hair is altered and permanently wave or curl with the help of chemical or thermal means by a hairstylist. Perming lasts around six months if well cared. It can also expose you to some damage if the hair is already dry or damaged. This quiz has been designed to test your knowledge about the process of perm. Read the questions and learn new facts. Let's take this trivia quiz. All the best!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The perm wave lotion to be use is determined by the:

    • A.

      Hairstyle desired

    • B.

      Condition of the hair

    • C.

      Length of the hair

    • D.

      Colour of the hair

    Correct Answer
    B. Condition of the hair
    Explanation
    The perm wave lotion to be used is determined by the condition of the hair because different hair types require different levels of strength and treatment. For example, if the hair is damaged or weak, a milder lotion would be used to minimize further damage. On the other hand, if the hair is healthy and strong, a stronger lotion can be used to achieve the desired results. Therefore, considering the condition of the hair is crucial in selecting the appropriate perm wave lotion.

    If perm lotion has a pH above 9.5 it may act as a:

    • A.

      Acid

    • B.

      Astringent

    • C.

      Oxidixer

    • D.

      Hair remover

    Correct Answer
    D. Hair remover
    Explanation
    A perm lotion with a pH above 9.5 is highly alkaline. Alkaline substances have the ability to break down the protein structure of hair, which can lead to hair removal. Therefore, a perm lotion with a pH above 9.5 may act as a hair remover.

    Perm lotion has a:

    • A.

      Hardenng action on the hair

    • B.

      Softening action on the hair

    • C.

      Lubricatin acio on the hair

    • D.

      Stiffening acio on the hair

    Correct Answer
    B. Softening action on the hair
    Explanation
    Perm lotion has a softening action on the hair. This means that when the lotion is applied to the hair during a perm treatment, it helps to relax and loosen the hair's natural texture, making it more pliable and easier to manipulate. This allows the hair to be curled or styled into the desired shape during the perm process.

    The size of the curl depends on:

    • A.

      The condition of the hair

    • B.

      The condition of the scalp

    • C.

      The rod size

    • D.

      The perm used

    Correct Answer
    C. The rod size
    Explanation
    The size of the curl depends on the rod size used during the perming process. Different rod sizes create different curl sizes, with larger rods resulting in looser curls and smaller rods creating tighter curls. The rod size determines the amount of hair that is wrapped around it, which directly affects the size and shape of the curl. Therefore, choosing the appropriate rod size is crucial in achieving the desired curl outcome.

    The chemical bonds broken down by the perm are called?

    • A.

      Salt bonds

    • B.

      Hydrogen bonds

    • C.

      Disulphide bonds

    • D.

      Peptide bonds

    Correct Answer
    D. Peptide bonds
    Explanation
    Peptide bonds are the chemical bonds broken down by the perm. These bonds are formed between amino acids in a protein chain, and they are responsible for holding the chain together. During a perm, the chemicals used break down these peptide bonds, allowing the hair to be reshaped and curled.

  • 6. 

    If you twist the rubber or stretch it too tight it may cause?

    • A.

      A frizzy curl

    • B.

      A springy curl

    • C.

      A resilient cur

    • D.

      Breakage

    Correct Answer
    D. Breakage
    Explanation
    Twisting or stretching a rubber too tight can cause it to reach its breaking point and result in breakage. When a rubber is subjected to excessive force or pressure, it may exceed its elastic limit and snap, leading to breakage. This can happen due to the material's inability to withstand the applied stress, resulting in a loss of structural integrity and ultimately causing breakage.

    The 'S' bend determines the :

    • A.

      That development is taking place

    • B.

      The size of the section

    • C.

      The amount of ension to use

    • D.

      Processing time

    Correct Answer
    A. That development is taking place
    Explanation
    The 'S' bend determines that development is taking place. This suggests that the 'S' bend is a visual indicator or a sign of progress or growth in a particular context. It could be referring to the development of a project, a system, a product, or any other aspect where progress and advancement are being observed.

    Elasticity tests the

    • A.

      Internal strength of the hair

    • B.

      The strength of the cuticles

    • C.

      How bouncy the hair is

    • D.

      Length of the hair

    Correct Answer
    A. Internal strength of the hair
    Explanation
    Elasticity tests the internal strength of the hair by measuring its ability to stretch and return to its original shape without breaking. This is an important factor in determining the overall health and condition of the hair. Hair with good elasticity is more resistant to damage and breakage, while hair with poor elasticity is more prone to breakage and can indicate underlying issues such as dryness or damage. Therefore, elasticity is a key indicator of the internal strength and health of the hair.

    Porosity tests the

    • A.

      How much water the hair absorbs

    • B.

      Internal strength of the hair

    • C.

      External strength of the hair

    • D.

      Thickness of hair

    Correct Answer
    C. External strength of the hair
    Explanation
    Porosity refers to the hair's ability to absorb and retain moisture. It measures how easily water and other substances can penetrate the hair shaft. The more porous the hair, the more it absorbs water. Therefore, porosity tests the hair's ability to absorb moisture, not its external strength. External strength of the hair refers to its resistance to breakage and damage from external factors such as heat, chemicals, and styling.

    Pre-perm test curl tests

    • A.

      The condition the hair will be in before the perm

    • B.

      The condition the hair will be in after the perm

    • C.

      If the client is suitable for a perm

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. The condition the hair will be in after the perm
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "the condition the hair will be in after the perm." This answer suggests that the purpose of the pre-perm test curl tests is to assess the condition of the hair after the perm has been applied. It helps determine if the hair has been properly treated and if the perm has achieved the desired result.
