I have semi-long, thick hair that is so incredibly naturally straight that hot rollers and sponge curlers hardly do the trick! I love my straight hair, but I would like to be able to wake up in the morning and have loose curls without the hassle and time consumed to curl it. I've heard of body waves, but I'm not quite sure what they consist of? My hair also grows very fast, so I'm a little iffy on perming it because wouldn't my roots grow out straight? Basically, I'm looking for suggestions. I don't want ringlet curls by any means, but a nice loose natural looking curl for everyday would make my life complete! Thanks for any help!
