Your hair looks like a profesionnal perm!

I wasn't sure at the beginnig if I should put this in the category  "Hall of Fame" or "Hall of Shame"...  But finally, since I decided to embrace my curls, and a profesionnal perm is suppose to look good, I decide to write it here.

I had a meeting today and a lady asked me if I had a perm recently...   "No, I always had curly hair, they just curl a lot more (not wanting to get into the explanation of the new routine and products, etc). " 

"Oh, I've never notice how curly they are!"  lol

A lot of people think I get a perm because of my curly hair...  Funny, isn't it?  ;)

    Back when people would ask me "Is that a perm?" I would say, "Uh, yeah, it's permanent, all right!"

    I know some people take offence when people ask if it's a perm, but I take it as a compliment (even if it wasn't one!). : )

     But when I say " no it's my hair that naturally curls "  they do not believe me.. :# :cold_sweat:  
    I just created an Instagram account on the evolution of my curly hair journey !

    I've had people ask me if my curl was natural before, and they look a little surprised when I tell them yes. I think most people assume that curly hair is permed hair. I'm the opposite--I am always surprised to find out that someone has permed hair and not natural curls!
