To perm or not to perm

Postby oostevens » Sun Sep 09, 2007 9:24 pm

Hi guys!

Ok, here is my question:

I have naturally wavy thick hair. I was thinking about maybe perming it, but i dont know very much about perms, or pricing, or if it would go well with thick wavy hair.

If i do get it done, it will be a reward for reaching a goal.

And I recon i would need to get my fringe cut or something i dunno, if i got a perm that is...

what do you recon?

ive read heaps about this actually because when i was 10 before i started high school i got my long hair spiral permed. looked fab and everyone loved it. i have naturally curly hair anyway and it looked awesome permed. however it depends on what perm you get done, how long your hair is as well. perms take a lot of looking after as well. ive researched on the net a lot about spiral perms and apparently they arent 'the in thing' at the moment. i was considering it before i cut my hair into the katie holmes PoB! however just because it isnt 'in' at the moment doesnt mean you shouldnt have it done! the only thing i hated about the perm being done was that it really hurt my scalp when they scrub your head with the curlers in it at the basin to get the perming solution out. do some research and see what you think about it all :)

Rach I am biased because I love long sleek hair :P

You could always do a test and get your hair curled with hot curlers and see how it looks. Whether you are able to carry curly hair.

You also need to be on the lookout if it will make your face look fuller.

But then, I was watching America's next top model and one of the models had lovely tight curly hair and she looked hot.

Best to do a test run and see if you could live with curly hair.

i might ask a hairdresser.

My hair actually goes curly if i scrunch it :p or put mousse in it. I just wanted something different.

I straighten my hair sometimes, but i recon it makes my face fat ha ha.

I dont want to cut my hair shorter, its just past my shoulders when its straight, but i want something new.

had foils done a month or two ago so yeah....

any ideas if not perm?
