well, three decades later, i got one. yup. first treatment type thing i've ever done to my hair. and let's just say my hair didn't do so hot. it was too healthy really. now let me just clarify i was not going for the poodle perm here, the rods my hairdresser used were really big. this was a body wave. and it worked sort of. just didn't hold as well as hoped. it looks great wet, but then as it dries (i only air dry my hair) it looks sort of stringy and funky. dirty hippy hair. but i kind of like it. eh. it was an experiment. and my hair still feels pretty healthy.
