Hi all my pink sisters, I thought I needed a change from the "old lady" perm - had to keep telling young people that it definately was not a perm!!!! Anyway went back to my longterm hairdresser and boy what a change. I had permanent straightening (yes not too many chemicals), colouring and foils and some shaping into a nice style. I love it. She told me that "it" is at its most defined and as soon as the regrowth starts "my do" will be fuller.
