I went ahead and got the perm on Saturday. I don't hate it but don't really LOVE it either. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever loved a perm in the first week that I got it. I'm trying to leave it curly/scrunched for a week so that the perm will relax on it's on and still stay permed. I've killed a perm in the past attempting to straighten it too quickly. I can't wait it blow dry it out straight and use the big curling iron on it though. I think it may actually have body now!! But until then I'll continue with the "Annie" look for a few more days.
