~ New Perm ~

My first perm was in September 08. The stylist said it was only going to last me 3 months or so but with tedious hair care (with shampoo and misc styling products specifically for curls), it lasted me until March of 09 when I decided to chop off most the leftover curls. Before the cut, my hair was pretty much up to my waist. After, my hair was basically neck length...

I work with 2 girls that have naturally curly hair and I get jealous of them and them of me. Haha... We are wierd. I don't want to spend like an hour on curling every morning, that is the reason why I wanted a perm and they don't want to spend time doing straightening... Another reason for me is because now that I am wearing makeup everyday, even if it is simple makeup, I feel as if I should do something with my hair to go with the makeup instead of just washing it, brush it, and leave for where ever I am supposed to go that day.

I decided to get a perm again...
Day 1 with just some Biosilk. I hate how your not supposed to wash your hair for 2 days after the perm... ewww... I felt so nasty... I also need to touch up my roots..XD The hair color I have right now is Garnier Nutrisse 60 Acorn (the box also said light natural brown). I might just dye my hair back to dark brown.

I went back to my usual salon but the stylist who did my hair last year was not there anymore. I went to a Korean Salon... The stylist this time understood more English but that did not make things any better. Last year, the guy cut my bangs a little short for my taste. This year, she curled my bangs a tiny bit so it only goes one direction (so no pictures until I grow it out a bit and get to trim it) even though I specifically told her no when she asked me if I wanted it that way... Grr... I can never get what I want exactly when it comes to hair....

I tried taking a picture of my hair with styling products but it's not that big of a difference from day one except the curls are a bit more pronounced. And I tried like 50 times and I kept cutting off a part of my head so I don't have a good picture to post. :D

Can anyone recomment some good products to help prolong the perm? I only picked up some pantene and garnier products from the local drugstore for now....

Random picture of something I bought recently:

Jessica Simpson Patent Pumps for $15!!! I am not so fond of the way the stiletto part looks but the price got to me. Plus, a girl can never have too many pairs of shoes!

Yep, you can never have too many shoes! Those are killer pumps at an even killer price! Your curls look really nice. Sorry I don't have any perm tips but maybe some of the other girls do. :)

Thanks Emily and Shopn'Chomp!

I try not to shop retail price anymore. TJ Maxx and Marshall's is my good friend. You can get designer brands way cheaper. You just gotta be diligent and go everyweek. It's become a habit for me even if I don't buy anything (but that is rare).. :D

Too right that a lady can never have enough SHOES, what a great thrift find!

Your perm looks lovely, especially the colour. IMO using good shampoos and conditioners specifically for perms is a must to prolong the curls.
