It's only been 4 months, but it's still holding up great! My hair has relaxed into a bit more of a wave so I touch it up with a curling iron to get the big curls but the best part is that it actually stays all day long. Back when I had straight hair, I would curl my hair and it would fall out in about an hour. Now, I can do anything to it, curl it, straighten it and it looks the same from day to night.
The perm is supposed to last until your hair grows out. My hair grows insanely fast so the curls are now starting at below my ears. When I first got it permed I had asked them to start the curls right around my cheekbones. I will probably get it re-permed in about two months. It might not be neccessary but I think it will be good just to get it touched up again.
I wanted to try out curlers so I bought the Remington Quick Curl Hair Rollers from Target and so far I really like them! The packaging is so small and perfect for travel and it really does heat up in 90 seconds. Okay, I didn't time it but it was fast. I will be bringing them with me to Jamaica.
I know the point of the digital perm is so you don't have to curl your hair and on the days I don't, it looks fine, it's still curly. I'm just so used to doing my hair that I don't mind going the extra step for perfect big curls.
If you want to see another digital perm girl go visit Angel over at Love and Splendor. Hers turned out beautifully!
I got a lot of questions from readers contemplating the digital perm. Did anyone else end up getting one? I would love to see how other's perms turned out!
