I've had my hair permed before but it was just the regular cold perm and it did not look natural. I was going for the beach wave look this time. I scheduled an appointment two weeks ahead and it was a good thing that I did because the service takes about five hours and apparently they only have one machine so they could only do one customer at a time.
First they shampooed my hair then applied the chemicals. I had to wait about 20 minutes after application before it was rinsed. I knew that I was going to be in there for quite some time so I brought reinforcements.
After rinsing my hair came the tedious process of rolling them into erm...rollers. The rollers came in different diameters and they used a combination of medium and large on my hair. Wendy, the one doing the perming, told me that it's better to use the smaller ones because the curls will loosen in the next days.

|Does this remind you of Species or what?|
After all the work, I must say that...I loooooooove my hair! It was definitely the change that I needed.
If you can't change your relationship status, the go on and change yout hairstyle! If you are having a very crappy week or at your lowest, then you should do something to make you feel good about yourself. There's nothing wrong with spending to feel pretty. I should know, I've been (or maybe still am) at my lowest but I'm slowly crawling up out of there. I will get out of there. I swear.
