I was, sadly, not born with the naturally curly hair I want, so I cheated. I got a perm.
Perms have such a bad, 80s related reputation and that makes me sad. Because my perm experiences have always been awesome.
Right now I'm loving how easy it is to wash my hair, not blow dry it, and let it be itself - not its natural self, of course, but it's chemically induced natural looking self.
It's also become a great excuse to bring back barrettes and even, God forbid, scrunchies.
It is legitimately hard to handle the amount of 80s-ness in my life right now.
