I have shoulder length blondish highlighted hair with some long lengths. I used to dry and then tong it into beachy waves, but since having dd I rarely have the time and it mainly looks shit and is tied up. Can I have a perm?!

I have wavy shoulder length blonde hair with layers and I have discovered that the best treatment is to never comb or brush it after washing (do it beforehand), and add some Umberto Gianni curl stuff / Moroccan oil etc... to it, leaving it to dry naturally. When nearly dry, just lift the roots with your fingers and the hairdryer. Takes 2 mins max. Don't even try to style it. You then get the surfer look without the faff. Sort of strandy waves.
I wash mine every day and it is so quick now. Even better if I go to bed with it damp.
Having said that I may well look a fecking mess to everyone else, but I like it grin

That's sounds good fresh. Does it last all day?
