Did you perm your hair curly or straight?

If you permed your hair curly, you might be able to use twist outs, bantu knots, curlformers, or flexi rods to even out the curl pattern til it grows out enough for you to feel comfortable cutting off the rest of the perm.

If you permed it straight, there is little chance any of those options will work with it.

Of course, you could just bite the bullet and do the Big Chop and take all the remaining perm off now. Many women look great in a short afro, and then you just have to learn what your natural hair looks like, likes and dislikes while you continue your natural CG journey.

Edit:Your curl type can't be identified til you can see your natural hair. Your hair type, which is more important for identifying products and ingredients most likely to work for you can, check this site for help with that:

Be Happy!


Experimenting with too many products to name here. All this great info keeps my head spinning.
