The hair straightening and hair-do threads inspired this one. I have very long hair (couple inches below bra strap on back) and like my hair wavy/curly. The way I usually do this is loosely french braid it when damp and let it set overnight. However, this is kinda a pain in the butt and I was thinking about just getting it permed. I used to dye my hair a blond colour (so it's been bleached), but now just dye it a dark brown at home. I'm not sure if the perm will kill my hair. Any advice? Also, if you get a perm, do you have to keep doing it every couple of months? Cuz its kinda ugly when it's half curly and really frizzy. Plus, do you have to wait for the permed hair to all grow out to have straight hair again?
