<----------- For a girl who has this kind of natural hair to begin with, why even bother getting a perm?
cold, my hair is a bite tame with relaxed waves but when it gets hot, the loops get annoyingly uneven and frizzy too) into something with either cute Korean curls (defined, big curls) or hot, Surfer Girl waves. I had to find out if that thought is workable for me.
|Marlon's so serious in scrutinizing my hair.:)|
And then the "mane" procedure began. My hair was divided into sections, and the perming solution was applied to each section and then rolled on rods. If I heard it right from Marlon, the rods used were combination of 20 and 22, I guess they're the biggest of the rods available. I wasn't able to verify it though. Hello Medusa!
The rods were then attached to the machine which digitally controlled the heat that would flow to my hair. High tech huh!
I was attached to the machine for not less than 3 hours but mind you I did not get bored. Thanks to the Internet!:) Unfortunately I wasn't able to connect to Robinsons Metroeast's wifi but I was prepared hehehe, I brought Sun broadband and that's what I used to access FB. But then again, it wasn't surfing the net which took up most of my waiting time. it was playing tadaaaaannnn...ANGRY BIRDS. :)
When it was deemed ready, I was finally separated from the machine haha but before unrolling the rods, neutralizer was poured into my hair to seal in the curls. It felt cold on my scalp but it smelled wonderful ;)
I was handed a paper which looked like a doctor's prescription, only that it was a stylist's prescription, cool!
And the moment of truth finally came, rods were unrolled and my new hair was unraveled. Tadaaaaah!
Errr, I initially thought it was too curly for me. Waaaa! But of course I kept my smile.
But as soon as I stepped out of the salon, I disobeyed the stylist's instruction. I combed my hair! But with my fingers only. Waaa frankly speaking, I really thought it was too curly :((
Before the hubby got home, I warned him about my hair but when he finally arrived he said it's good! I asked him to take a photo of me and here's the result.
I was surprised! Beachy waves showed up on my crowning glory! I was ecstatic! Wow. Maybe it helped that I did run my fingers through my hair, it somehow tamed the curls. Yey!
Though I was disobedient to the "don't touch your hair" advice, I did follow the "don't wash your hair for 2 days" advice. Then, I just thought of putting my hair on a bun and guess what! When I undid my bun the day after and shook my head a little bit, my hair was transformed to this.
I will give update on my hair after a week. I hope it would remain nice as this :D
How about you, do you have any plans of getting a digiperm?:)
UPDATE: (Sept. 19) After washing my hair, it did not return to my preferred digipermed state like the one showed in the last photo above ^. But the beachy waves remained until now and I guess I'm ok with that.:D
