Shoulder length wavy, frizzy, highlighted hair. It’s not a good wavy, if I leave it without styling it just goes in a big bushy half straight ball. So normally I straighten it every day but I’m so fed up and I don’t have the time.
I was thinking, could I get a soft wave perm? I don’t even know if that exists. What styling does a perm need? Could I just get up, brush and go?
I did it twice. I’ve got very wavy hair that l usd to set on large rollers. I tried using those ( at a salon) with a perming solution. It was okay - this was 15 years ago ,l imagine that things might have moved on a bit now?
Do you use products ? My hair left to its own devices is like yours but using the curly girl method and products it's pretty amazing 🤗🤗.. it does take a lot of effort though and sometimes I just straighten it or pop it up on top of my head .
I asked this at my hairdresser last weekend as I just wanted a really loose wave and she said no. Lots of people ask but it can't be done. Why, I don't understand as I'd love some beachy waves in my limp mop.
Then a young bloke at work pitched up with a perm this week (I shit you not) and we were all reminded how awful hair looked in the 80's.
