What is a creep perm?
A: At COVO, we take into consideration each customer’s hairtype. Our normal perms are all creep perm. We roll each rod and apply perm solution (1st agent) and as the solution drips down, we leave it for some time before applying another solution (2nd agent). This leaving time is called “Creep Time”, when the structure of the hair shifts. Usual perms use solution (1st agent) and then rinsed. The second solution is immediately applied. The hair cuticle is not shifted properly with this method, so there have been cases where curls do not turn out well and hair damage is visible, but by using creep perm, we can reduce these undesirable results.
What is the difference between a perm and digital perm?
A: Normal perms only use chemicals while digital perms uses heat to create the curls. This reduces the degree of damage of your hair, as the amount of perm solution used is lesser.

Another feature of the digital perm is that it lets you have a hairstyle that looks like it was done with a curling iron.
