Default 3A Perm Questions

I want to get a perm with a 3A curl. I have attached a virtual picture of me wearing the style I want. I have a few questions, though:
1. What color perm rod should I use?
2. Is this possible for my hair texture? My hair is naturally straight.
3. I have colored my hair a few times. Can I still get a perm?

Hi Leah,
I love talking to a 3A fan. Ha ha! Since I'm naturally curly as most here are, I don't know the answer to your question. It probably would be best to talk to a stylist who you trust.
3A, Protein Senitive, Low Porosity,
Wash: Suave Naturals Conds (excluding Coconut), CVSB
Rinse out/Leave In: GVP Cond. Balm, KCKT,
Style: Naturelle Gel(winter HG), KCCC (summer HG), Flaxseed gel
Love your hair: Love yourself!

Default I have not had luck with perms.

I once got a perm in an attempt to get my 3a hair to corkscrew curls.

It failed, and left my hair extremely damaged. I also had a friend with straight hair who got a perm, professionally done, which did nothing but damage her hair's structure: not a single curl. I wouldn't risk it if I were you, but it is your choice. Permed hair is a lot of trouble, and it may just be easier to set it in rollers (soft so they won't hurt your head) at night instead. Just some thoughts to consider .
Dense but fine and delicate 3a hair. Feels like a dandelion without product. Difficulties in getting less puff and more definition when short.

On a mission to grow out after my big chop!
