Default Has anyone ever permed their wavy hair?

I'm beginning to think that no matter what products I put on my hair I will never have those nice curls I long for. My mom's stylist said something about perming my hair loosely to give it a more structured curl. Has anyone ever done this and would rec it? Thanks!

I did it when I was younger and strongly recommend that you don't do it. My hair just ended up frizzier and damaged with curls that were too uniform.

I do understand how you feel about your wavy hair. I felt that way for the longest time. Now, I just accept that my hair will never be anything other than wavy at best.

Ditto. I would perm my hair, then wonder why the heck I'd done it. It was always a mass of frizz.

For me, I would rather be a PJ to get 3A curls than ever perm my hair again. I'm even happy when I get the kind of waves I want - I think waves can be just as gorgeous as curls. And I've seen curls that frankly, I'd never trade my mostly wavy hair for !

I was very lucky--at a young age a hairstylist said, "Don't ever perm your hair. It takes curl too easily." My hair is wavy 2b/3a and I'm happy to live with that, in search of the perfect combination.

Don't do it! My mother had my curly hair permed at age 8, and it just gave me frizz. Plus I was the only 8 year old with split ends and chemical damage in the neighborhood.

What CelticMoonDance said. Well, unless you use big perm rods. I used medium and had 3B/3C. Didn't look right on me.
