Non-frizzy perm with lasting curl
August 3, 2013

Pros:
Good body curl, no smell, no damage to my hair. Long lating curl
Cons:
None

Product is Fantastic
July 26, 2013
My hair is very resistant to curl. It has been very difficult to find a salon in Calgary, Alberta, Canada that carries this product. I purchased this product and the delivery was very quick. I was able to have my stylist substitute ISO Option 3 and have her do the perm. My hair has never been healthier or softer after a perm. This is the only perm to use.
Pros:
soft hair strong perm no frizz no breaking ends
Cons:
None

Love it!
July 11, 2013
I've used ISO perms since 1993, and loved that they never dried my hair out. My husband always thought they made my hair softer in fact. This time, I let a beautician convince me that Matrix was the same thing, that ISO had been replaced by Matrix. So not true! My hair is so dry, is breaking, falling out, and feels so rough I can't slide the brush through it to blow dry into a style. I will never use Matrix again, and if a stylist tells me they don't carry ISO, but have something "better", I will move on.
Pros:
Soft hair, non-drying, doesn't cause split ends, great curls.
Cons:
None that I've run into in 20 years.

Product Results
February 7, 2013
I have been using this product for years and have had a bit of difficulty in finding it lately in the local shops. Searching online I was able to find it at Sleekhair and cannot not tell you how happy I was to find it. The product is fantastic for my longer hair and it gives me some really nice soft but durable curls and awesome volume. I have fine hair and a lot of it so this product works really well for me. I am a committed customer of Seekhair going forward thanks to Option exo: PLEASE keep this product available, it really is an outstanding solution. Its a great perm for the modern woman who is constantly on the go ! Thank you !!

Iso Perms
February 5, 2013
If you aren't a licensed cosmetologist and do not know what you are doing and what to use on what type of hair, you are not going to have good results with these perms.....any perms for that matter.....leave it to the professionals!

Don't use EXO on people who are sensitive to smell!
January 22, 2013
My mother has coarse Asian hair and the salon she *used* to go to used EXO every third time or so, even though every time it was used on her she called to complain about the smell. The odor was so strong that it "stained" (with scent) her pillow even through a double layer of towels, and so odious that she couldn't sleep. The last time it was used on her -- MUCH to our disgust -- it even caused a burning sensation on her scalp. Needless to say, we will not be returning to that salon again. The manager said it's not so bad if it's washed out thoroughly, but my mom doesn't want to ever catch a whiff of that nasty odor again.
Pros:
It did at least perm her hair well.
Cons:
The odor. It's just AWFUL! And the only way to get rid of it is to cut off the permed hair.

Option 1
October 29, 2012

Cons:
Nothing, it was terible.

The Best
September 25, 2012
I give myself perms on my long fine hair. It is thin and that's the only way I can get body into it. I tried to buy this at Sally's but they will not sell it to me because I'm not a professional. Now that I'm 40, I have to occasionally color the grey out too, which is not kind on my permed hair. I used this perm about 5 months ago and the curl is still going strong. I used flexible foam rods in green and yellow, wrapped spiral style. Easy, easy, easy. This is by far the best perm I've used, and I've done SEVERAL on my hair over the years. Thanks Sleek Hair for selling this product. A perm like this would easily cost me $150. in a salon. (If you have long hair, get 2 boxes).
Pros:
firm curl gentle doesn't smell bad easy

Love this Product!
August 14, 2012
I was very Pleased after using ISO Perm Option 1! I have Fine Curly Color Treated Hair, I combed it through to relax the Curl & give my hair some Body, kind of like a Body Wave. The Outcome was quite Nice, it did not damage my hair, in fact, it has a real pleasant smell not like the average perm. GOOD PRODUCT! I do recommend it & will use it again.
Pros:
Soft, Pleasant with Good Results!
Cons:
No Dislike at the Moment. One Suggestion, it would be Nice if it could be made in a Foam Perm!

ASL from London
August 10, 2012
This is the best perm I have ever used, natural non-frizzy curl and long lasting. The newest version has a more pleasant smell as well. My hairdresser cannot find it in the UK. I have to order in bulk from the US and travel with my own supply. Why is Iso not marketed overseas?
Pros:
The best perm for fine hair
Cons:
Cannot be found outside the US

A BETTER PERM
August 5, 2012
The Iso Option Perm Option 1 works very well on my gray hair. The curl is immediately manageable and the very best part is that is has a pleasant scent, not stinky like most perms.
Pros:
Manageability and pleasant scent
Cons:
Doesn't seem to last any longer than most perms. My hairdresser can't find it in her supply store, so I have to purchase it online.

Worry Free Transaction
August 3, 2012
Excellent ordering experience! I I received my order within 3-4 days. I liked the Iso - Option 2 Perm, however, I might try a different Iso Perm the next time. I have fine, highlighted hair that I've been getting permed for 8 years. Normally, 4 perms a year and likewise with highlighting. Therefore, my hair is very difficult to curl. I left the Option-2 on for nearly 40 minutes as my hair wasn't taking to the curl, (clearly not what is recommended). My hair turned out with more of a wavy definition versus the tighter curl I was going for.
Pros:
The Perm had very easy to understand instructions. It didn't leave my hair dry.
Cons:
The perm delivered more of a tight wave versus the tighter curl I would have preferred.

By Marie Plans from Wheatland, IA on October 19, 2012
Hi, I bought Option 1 Perm on the advice of one of your representatives I called and asked her what perm I should buy, after I described my hair condition. She said; Option 1. Today I had the perm and it did not take.
My hair is still straight and I paid my friend $20. to do my hair. She has done hundreds of perms for many years. for family and friends with greaat success. So she knows what she's doing. We followed the instructions on the box to a 'T'. We are both very unhappy with this product as it did not perform as stated.
I wanted a curly perm, not straight hair. Now I have to wait another 3 months before I can have another perm. The bar code; Salon Exclusive. #74469 45468 What do you suggest? Marie Plans

By Diana from Tennessee on October 2, 2012
I keep my hair permed curly, due to naturally thin, straight & dry hair. I am so excited to see I can purchase Iso from you. I have actually had two Iso perms from a professional the 1st did great & last 5 mos. the 2nd she totally burned my hair up, she did a couple of deep conditions then I never went back. I have been using a brand purchased through Sally's they just don't last long. I am due for a perm now, I can't wait to place my order. I need some advise
My hair takes curl good but, it relaxes quick due to my naturally straight hair & I have to treat dryness. I'm not sure which to purchase 1, 3 or EXO I have read the description but maybe you can give some advice

what is the #1 perm professionals use on color treated hair!
By AJ from Sarasota, Florida on December 28, 2011

Answer:
Being a retired professional, I can only tell you what my #1 choice would be - The ISO Option 1 or 2, depending on if it was previously permed and whether the color was lifted or deposit-only. Either way, your best choice would be one of the ISO Option perms, the very best I've come across, and the ONLY perm I use on myself. The condition of my hair is always better after the perm than before!

Which one is for gray hair that has never been permed?



By betty sadowski from mosinee, wi on December 9, 2012
it seems that every time i have a perm lately, using iso, i have trouble with my hair falling out about 2-3 weeks after. i have had all the tests for hair loss (blood work, etc) and there is nothing else wrong. my beautician uses the one for fine, thin hair but if it is not left in for 9 minutes or so, it doesn't last more than 3 weeks before it becomes a question of whether i really had a perm. i have been bugging her for the last 6 years to get iso and try it because i had them before and they gave the best results of any i had and believe me, i have had a lot of perms , could it be that i am too old to have perms (i am 65) and should find a different way to style hair that doesn't do anything if it doesn't have a perm. i will also have her try the iso option exo if i have not had that yet. i never color my hair except to use a rinse that comes out after 10 or so washings. help.

By Deborah from Deborahh246@aol.com on April 22, 2012
so if I have very fine straight stringy hair ( a day or two after shampooing) would this be a good option the Option exo
By AJ from North Port, FL on May 4, 2012

Answer:
Yes, it's a great perm for fine hair, and can be used on damaged hair or previously permed hair. I guess the stringiness would depend on what kind of product you use after shampooing and how oily your scalp is. I only use color without developer, so I use Option 1. If you use color that lifts, use Option 2. Also, I try to use very little conditioner because that flattens my hair. My hair stays nice and full for a few days.

By nicole from hurricane mills tennessee on December 12, 2011

Answer:
Number 2
By Nell from Naples,Florida on December 12, 2011

Answer:
The Iso # 1 would be fine. It was when I started coloring and highlighting and perming that I needed to advance to the ISO # 2. It is the most wonderful Perm I have ever used and have been using this brand for years. I have never been disappointed. Good Luck. LB
By Bobbie from Georgia on December 13, 2011

Answer:
I personally do not color my hair and perm but I just gave my sister-in-law (who colors her hair) the #2 Iso Perm and she has absolutely loved it. I have also gotton the opinions of other hair professionals who reccommend the #2 Iso Perm if double processing is the issue (i.e. coloring and perming your hair). I've used Iso perms for 14 years now and I'm sold on their product. They are a little more expensive but the perms never "fall" out of your hair; you will just "grow" them out and eventually need a new one. I perm my hair with this product every 3-4 months (this is how fast my hair grows) and it's very gentle, yet effective, on my stubborn, hard to curl hair.
By cindy from mo on December 14, 2011

Answer:
I used number 2.I would condition my hair for a good 2 weeks before.I use bigger rods rotatating 2 or 3 different sizes for a natral wave.Don't wash or pull on the hair for a least 2 days.Then condition and wash.Hope this helps.
By Sharon from St George, UT on December 14, 2011

Answer:
If you like a firm curl, I would use #1. The number 2 gives a more relaxed curl.
