Inspired by unpleasantries, I wanted to post an entry about my perm free process. I chopped off my hair in 2008. I cut it in a short bob which literally cut out all the perm. I haven't had a perm since July of 2008. Since then my hair has grown thicker, longer and healthier. I straighten my hair out a lot. Only because sometimes the curly state is hard to maintain. I have re-wet it all the time. It's cool in the summertime, but now it is winter....so going out in the cold with wet hair is not smart. I use Mizani products, (the True Textures line), but they are too expensive. But it keeps my hair soft and shiny. I also use the Mizani Milk Bath shampoo when I straighten my hair. I really need to get in the habit of getting my hair trimmed...although I want to learn how to trim my own hair since I do my own hair. I want my curls to fall like unpleasantries....I'll get there soon. Does anybody recommend any products I could use that are not too expensive?

Right before i cut it and still had perm on tne ends, sorry i dont have a pic with my short bob...Collapse )

Here are some pictures of my hair curly and one with my hair straightened...Collapse )
