As you can all see, I have very tight 3b curls. Many years ago I let a stylist talk me into a perm to make all of my curls "uniform". We used the largest rods possible and it didn't look ANY DIFFERENT. So what did I do? I let her talk me into just "combing" it through, allowing it to loosen all of my curl to a "body wave". Ha! My hair just laughed in her face and through frizz at her!
