I remember my first perm back in MIDDLE SCHOOL, way back when they would put those heavy hot clips on the rollers. I could barely hold my head up. I was doing home perms by high school, Rave's Body Wave. I miss the fullness, but not all that time with the hairdryer
I've had two perms. The first was a box perm that a gf put on for me, and we fried my hair. The second one was in the '80's, and it was awesome. I loved it. I just didn't like that I had to heat roll it every morning for the desired look. I would like to get a spiral perm, if I could find someone I trust to do it. My hair is half way down my back again, and I could pull it off, and a spiral doesn't require as much work as a regular perm. It's pretty much wash and go.
