Little girl

Dear Ouidad:

My hair is wavy, not curly at all unless I add products. Would you recommend my getting a perm or body wave? I had one many years ago and loved it. The curls were spiral and natural looking. It's the only way I can think of to get those curls I want and not have to put tons of styling products in my hair and be able to leave the house quickly in the mornings.

Dear Wavy:

Wavy hair is gorgeous, too! I always tell my clients in the salon to embrace their natural curl (or wave) pattern and work with it before going to chemical processes (like perm or softening). If you’re really looking to get that curly, wavy look though make sure that you prepare your hair with a nourishing Deep Treatment and get a gentle spiral perm. We’ve come a long way with the perms!
