Are they NOT the same thing? Are they maintained the samde way?
Also, is hair breakage typical with curl perms? It seems that people with curl perms typically complain of breakage? HAs anyone had a curl perm long-term with no problems?

Hi, they are essentially the same thing but to get a drier more natural look you use lighter products so that you won't end up looking like the drippy greasy styles like in the 80's.
 
There is a huge post right under this one called Curly Perms that I started when I first got my curly perm 2 years ago and there are alot of other ladies that have posted and shared their experiences in there also.
 
A curly perm is a double process so the potential for breakage could be high if you don't take care of it and moisturize properly. The 1st step though is finding a stylist who is really knowledgeable about doing curly perms.

ok thanks Stephshe! I saw someone with it a few days ago and it looked so nice, but I'm worried about the Soul glo look

I have a wave nouveau and its basically the same thing as a jheri curl but the curls are dry instead of wet. You only need to to apply a little bit of moisturizer to keep it from getting dry. A lot of people think my hair is naturally curly until I tell them I have a perm. 
          I've had the wave nouveau two separate times in my life and both times I've experienced breakage/shedding. My stylist told me it was normal with a curly perm. Other than that the only other problem i have is an itchy scalp every time I wash my hair. But I apply olive oil to my scalp to get rid of that problem.
