Back in September, I made the decision to get my hair permed. My hair had been curly all my life, up until a couple of years ago when I wrote this post on my hair journey and shortly afterwards realised that my curls had actually gone, and they weren’t coming back. For about 6 months, I accepted that my hair would never be back to its former glory naturally, and took to straightening it and adding waves with my straighteners. But I felt like I had lost my identity- my curly hair has always been my trademark (I put it on the introduction to my CV, for God’s sake) and I knew I couldn’t carry on without it anymore.

So, I took the plunge and went for it! I’ve had my perm for long enough now to know how to take care of it, and I wanted to share my routine with anyone else thinking of getting a perm, anyone who has one, or any fellow curly-haired people out there who are looking for new products to try.
