Yesterday, I curled my hair. I love having it curly; I love the bounciness, and I love how curls make me look. Today, while browsing the internet, I casually googled “spiral perms”. This is the site I looked at.
I learned several things. First, perms last 3-5 months. I could manage three to five months with curly hair. Second, perms can be straightened, so if I do get sick of curly hair, I can make it straight again, and then do curly the next day. Third, you can spiral perm shoulder length hair. My hair is just past my shoulders! And fourth, to find out if you have healthy hair, take a little chunk of hair, fill a glass of water, and do the “float test”. If your hair sinks in the water, it means your hair is unhealthy, and is soaking up water. If it doesn’t float, your hair is healthy.
I’m weighing the pros and cons. Kyle mentioned last night that curly hair is his favorite on me. Would it be so bad to perm my hair? Is there something I’m missing? Should I call and get an appointment? I know, I’m impulsive, but I’ve always wanted curly hair, and now that I have long hair, I can get thick curls that bounce when I walk.
What the heck. I’m going to be impulsive, and I’m going to call and get an appointment. Curly hair all the time can’t be all that bad.
EDITED TO ADD: I did it! (And spent more than I wanted to spend but that’s another story…) And at first, I hated it, and then I kinda liked it, and now, I love it!
