Perm Advice Please

Rose LillyRose Lilly Posts: 1Registered Users, Curl Ambassador Curl Neophyte

I live in the UK and have totally straight hair, no curl, no wave at all.

I’m wanting a loose spiral perm as in the photo. My hair is between chin and shoulder length, and I’d be grateful if you can advise what colour perm rods I’d need please?

    Sorry not likely to get advice here.  This is for naturally curly hair - no perm rods here.

    I did not know that some women with straight hair want to make a perm to have curly or wavy hair ..
    If you have a length between the chin and the shoulders, the final length will be almost at the chin level, I guess..

    Then, I think that a hairdresser will advise you better on the perm to do than us on this subject. Here we already have wavy or curly hair and some use a straightener everyday to have straight hair ..

    It's rather ironic and funny  :D

    I'm sorry I can not give you more information about it ..
    I just created an Instagram account on the evolution of my curly hair journey ! 
    It will be a pleasure to find you there  :)

    I would bring this picture to the hairdresser and ask her which size rod would work best.

    No clue as everyone here has textured hair already. But do make sure you are going to a professional. At home perms can be disasterous. Unlike color which can be corrected if messed up, perms are permanent.
