Permed hair is not for lazy people.

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

If you read my blog last week, you would have learnt that I permed my hair! Ok, just soft curls at the end via digital perm and not whole head Maggi-noodle style.

Now, I sat through four hours to get my hair permed and I was taught how to maintain it after that too. Basically, after each wash, there’s a certain way to blow your hair so as to get the nice, bouncy curls out.

The first time I washed my hair, I attempted to blow my hair the way the salon taught me to. However, the outcome varied drastically from when they did it. Oh oh. I asked a friend who has permed curls too and she told me that she doesn’t blow it herself, but goes to the salon every other day to do it, unless she’s not going out or meeting anyone. What…


Now I know why my mum (who has short permed hair) doesn’t wash her hair everyday and visit the salon to get it blown when she does. There isn’t a salon near my place that’s convenient to go to and it is quite a hassle (plus costly) to keep going to get someone to blow my hair for me. So I gave up!


The second time I washed my newly-permed hair, I didn’t bother to blow it. Oops.. I’m just gonna leave it be and see how long it will last before straightening out. Meantime, if you are a lazy person or if you don’t want to trouble yourself with styling your hair everyday, then don’t perm curls!
