A question about perms (aaargh)

The mere mention of a perm is enough to make me wince! I remember the couple I had in the mid-eighties and the results were bad enough to make me wait twenty years before considering them again (in the hope that technology and techniques will have improved considerably lol).

I have quite long layered hair and atm I use my ghd's to curl it away from my face and it tends to go a bit spiral (iykwim) and I like the look of it.

But it does need doing every day. :rolleyes:

Is there a perm that would gently have the same effect?

you could get an acid perm on spiral rods :green:, but to be honest hun , i would just do it with the ghds everyday , its only the same as straigtening aint it

Hi Blossom
I agree with Dee because a perm will never look like curling it with tongs or straighteners, it maybe even more work.

have you tried using tongs ? as these are a bit eaier to use on yourself than doing it with ghds .
you can get a good result , have a nosy in my profile album , theres some pics in there i did with tongs :green:

i agree it wouldnt look like the ghd curls, people who have this sort of perm are always disappointed. it would either be too little or too much.
sorry!

Also to add I had my hair permed for many years and I would have to wet it/wash it every day and diffuser it or it looked like a birds nest. Id stick to the ghds!

I also agree with all the others too ,

but when hair is very straight and wont hold a curl at all

I must admit I like to put a very slight S bend in it ,
this way the hair looks ok wet
and it will help hold any curls that the client wants to put in it . :hug:
