have hair ishoos

am growing out a crop but forgot hair has turned wiggly after having dd. is curly, but only if i "scrunch." otherwise looks like dom king. seriously.

is def not straight but not quite curly. is currently about 4 inches long.

if i get it permed to make it more curly will i look like the queen? i wouldn't mind but i'm not even 30 yet

am already starting to bear a worrying resemblance to camilla pb hmm

Don't perm! It will look shorter. And like a helmet. And you will look older and matronly.

I know all this because I did it. It was horrendous.

Your only options are to persevere or try having it trimmed into a style that you can manage as it is growing out.

At the moment I have a mess not a 'do'! It is currently a too long straggly bob. Well it was a bob!

The perm was a long time ago. I had shortish hair and wanted to grow it and thought it would be easier if it was permed. It wasn't.

I was living in Vietnam at the time and my Ozzie hairdresser wasn't too sure about doing it but he did anyway. Then even he hated it! We used to go out drinking together and he would sit and tell me how much he hated my hair!
