I blogged about getting my digital perm two weeks ago so I wanted to show the results!
I'm not a fan of just shots of my face. Am very self conscious of my extra round face, so you get the fully body shot. haha.
The process took about four hours and the machine wasn't as scary looking as the picture in my post. Basically, they put the solution in my hair, rolled it in the special curlers, attached it to the machine which got up to 85 degrees Celsius and then sat there and sat there, until the machine cooled down and then the stylist took them out and styled my hair. I couldn't wash my hair or pull it back in a ponytail for 48 hours so I was very excited when I was able to wash it and style it to my liking.
I bought this MOP (Modern Organics Products) C-system curl defining cream from the salon and love it. I put a little in before I blowdry (low setting with a diffuser bought from the salon) and then after when I style my hair. I can either make my hair have tighter curls or bigger curls like in the picture above, depending on how I blowdry and style.
So overall, I highly recommend a digital perm for any straight haired girls dying for big bouncy waves. Also, just a mention to Ten Pachi salon that did my hair. They were WONDERFUL. I had two girls working on my hair to cut down on the time and they totally listened to what I wanted and kept on checking on me to see if I needed more water or if I was comfortable.
Now, all I have to do is to test this out with the makeup look I'm going for and a veil and see how it works out.
