There’s a new perm out called the Beach Wave Perm by Pravana Naturceuticals. This isn’t your mom’s 90’s perm — it’s really different. All natural and keratin-induced — it’s supposed to help strengthen your hair and leave it in better condition than before.
Now, I don’t buy into all of THAT, but it IS different. Firstly there are no perm rollers used, but rather sponge blocks. The idea is to create soft, natural waves, not tight curls. I was lucky enough to act as a guinea pig and try it out at Trashy Roots Salon in Round Rock, TX. Considering my hair is super straight, this was a nice change. Since I had a formal event to go to last night, I asked my stylist to style my hair and she curled my new waves for more defined curls and put it up in a simple up-do. Usually, my hair doesn’t curl AT ALL with a curling iron, but lo and behold, my hair is still curly a day later! So far, so good!
