First-timer permer!

Hey! So, I am sick of the whole CG method, trying to deal with it, products, blah blah blah. It's just SO much more easier to deal with when straight, so I am planning to get a straight-perm. Could you sort of take me throught the process? On average, how long does it stay straight? How much does it cost? Thank you:)

Sorry, but I LOVE to straighten my hair!

    Why don't you just straighten your hair with a blow dryer of flat iron? Why get a perm/ relaxer? According to your siggie, it doesn't seem like you have a strong curl pattern.

    Relaxing is very expensive. I googled around and it can be 50$+, depending on the salon (and, I believe, how thick your hair is). So every week or so you're going to have to spend 50 or more dollars on your hair.

    There's also risks of having your hair completely break off if you don't get it relaxed in awhile.

    If you want your hair to be "easier", just flat iron. Relaxing is just a waste of time and money.

    That's true. It's just that flat ironing everyday is just a pain. And I can not wash it for about 2 days, and then it starts to get a little greasy, but I guess I could just flat-iron every few days--you guys are right:). Thanks anway:icescream:
