Hello everyone, those who are close to me know how much I hate having pin straight hair….sigh…I wish I had even one curl or a wave, but to my dismay I was born with really straight hair. My curly-haired friends envy my hair and I envy theirs…. I guess its human nature to think that the grass is always greener on the other side.
Let me backtrack a bit. When I was in high school I got a perm and it was a complete disaster. Getting a perm back then was the fastest way of making anyone look unattractive. So I did what most girls do….I went home, cried and then wore a hat for a long time. Fast forward to 2015….. I saw a friend of mine who had straight hair with lovely curls during my new years party. When I asked her about it she told me that she had gotten a digital perm. The minute I heard “PERM” it brought back a few memories that I had been trying to forget for a long time. Anyway, she explained to me that the digital perm is different. It does not fry your hair and the curls come out better and more natural. I mean the proof was in the pudding…her hair looked awesome. So I thought why not? its only hair…worst comes to worse….I will wear a hat. (sigh)
After doing a lot of research I came across a salon called “Chloe’s Hair Salon” in Naperville. After cancelling two appointments I finally took the plunge…and let me tell you….I was pleasantly surprised.
Sharing some before and after pictures. Let me know what you think.
Its been two days since my digital perm and so far so good. I have not washed my hair yet (they say that I have to wait at-least 24hrs before I wash). Be careful of over brushing because it will leave your hair frizzy and de-tangle all the curls for good. I am not using any products in my hair so far. All I do is spray some water and crunch up my curls and that’s it!!!!….curls are back. Will I recommend it?….at this point I would like to say “yes” but I want to wait a few weeks to see how things go. I will keep you ladies updated. If you have any questions let me know and I will do my best to answer.
