Naturally straight hair - to perm or not??

I found this board on naturally curly hair for help with my daughter's curls.

I, unfortunately, have stick straight blond hair and would love to have curls. I don't know if everyone on this board is naturally curly or if some of you had straight hair and permed it.

If so, I was wondering if you like it or if it was too damaging for your hair. Tried to find a message board for straight hair or "permed" hair but didn't locate one.
