It has been three or four months since my last visit to the salon. You see, I wanted to have long, sexy, messy waves or curls, or whatever 'cause my hair was as flat as a pancake (even though I love straight hair), so I had my hair permed for the first time in my life. I know there are many different types of perms, spiral perm, corkscrew perm... hmmm, what else? The many choices can make my mind spin, so I didn't bother asking what the differences were.

The hair stylist suggested I get a water perm. Initially, it looked fine but not fantastic. However, maintaining a good and healthy curly hair is not an easy task when compared with straight hair. It also ended up looking dry and damaged after a few weeks.

Now, besides I've a head full of frizz like a lion's head, the perm is virtually non-existent, more of a wave than a curl. It is a puffy mess, has no style and is just plain, well, blah.

What's the big deal, you asked? Hair is one of the most important assets for women!

*in a dilemma* When am I not?!

Vanity. That's it.

For me personally, I don't go to the salon often because I never get exactly what I want.. whether it's the haircut or the hair color. And when I do find the perfect hairstylist, either they move on after a year or two and move somewhere entirely out of my way, or it's too expensive.

Even when I did my first perm before Raya, it was only because my sister has been going to him for years.. and it was a huge risk for me asking someone to do something outrageous to my hair, besides the normal cut and color.. Like you said, vanity. I don't know why it's so hard for hairstylists to get it right. And if it doesn't turn out right, they always blame our hair. >:o >:o >:o

Anyways, perhaps now is the time for you to get that short haircut like you wanted last year. OR maybe you can get another perm and treatment to fix this existing perm you have. :D :D Either way, still can look cun one!! Don't you worry!! :* :* :-D :-D

Curly hair is my dream hair but you're right. When we are blessed with straight hair and we got it permed, it gets frizzy, dry and eventually damaged. It's so hard to maintain. Anyways, the perm will die out naturally. You have to do some treatments to prevent more damage. You still look stunning and pretty Sweetie. No worries :-)

I got the ceramic perm (and i have no idea what the difference is between that and digital perm) and so far it's still holding on. Very fuss free actually.. after wash and dry, it looks like this. Perhaps if you're still interested in having curly hair.. you can go to JAntzen at Midvalley and ask them to fix it up?

Ane said... @ 2/3/11 12:10 PM

Ane said... @ 2/3/11 12:13 PM

Hey Mon! I have never curled or colored my hair the professional way. But I recently learned how to curl my hair using a flat iron and I just looove the result! :-D

Ane said... @ 2/3/11 12:14 PM

I agree with Shem, maybe you should get your hair cut short.. :-D

LadyJava said... @ 2/3/11 12:18 PM

foongpc said... @ 2/3/11 4:10 PM

But i know maintaining that permed hair is difficult, well at least you didn't spend like 9 hours in the salon like Mariuca did!! :-D

foongpc said... @ 2/3/11 4:13 PM

Since u like straight hair, why not just keep your hair straight then? :)

Namz said... @ 2/3/11 7:35 PM

i think people should go with what works best for them. Personally my hair looks better curly. and i think there's a bigger variety to manage with it.
