I have had several barbers and stylists ask me if I have had my hair permed. If they can't tell the difference between naturally curly and permed hair, then they're not much of a stylist.

I also went to a stylist and asked about getting my hair colored. She said she had a kit with an ideal color for me. Kits are for people who color their hair themselves at home. Any stylist worth a damn knows how to mix her own colors.
3B/3C hair, very dry
shoulder-length
coloured strawberry blonde with lighter blonde and red stripes

"I've had enough. This is my prayer. That I'll die living just as free as my hair."
