Have you ever had a perm?


This question is aimed at both the sexes since perms have suddenly become very fashionable for both men and women. If you have had one/ or more, what has your experience been like ?

    My mom would make what she called pin curls by twisting small strands of our hair and holding them with bobby pins.

    Sorry, you had a bad experience with your perm. They may have left it on too long, which is scary as it will burn up your hair!

    Hi Faith Reaper

    That sounds like exactly the look I would like. I love just being able to scrunch my hair dry and let it dry naturally but having more curls would be wonderful as long as my hair did not lose its shine.

    Mmmm the Poodle look is definitely not something I am looking for, I can tell you I am fast going off the Perm idea. Thanks for commenting.

    :) I remember the first part but definitely don't remember the last line. Did you make it up?

    I just had my hair cut but the funny thing is, I am still wishing my hair was a little curlier. Lucky you to have curly hair.

    Your comment brought an instant smile to my face. Yes, I have had the permed bangs too , oh dear, big mistake, that was too awful.

    It would be interesting to know whether modern day products are better than the earlier perm solutions used. My own experiences of having them were similar to those of you and yours.. Sometimes I long to have big wavy ringlets:)

    Nice to hear that your experience of having a perm was a good one. I can tell you my own was not, which makes me wonder why I want to go through that again:)
