Nice! I am going to perm my straight hair to get a kinky straight texture.  I'll do a test strip. Will this only work on virgin Indian hair? It seems like everyone is perming their VIH.

Yes, you can still color it.  It doesn't feel dry at all, and I don't get that feeling of having my hands chopped up when I run my fingers through it. 

What I have found is that there is potential for breakage, simply because curly hair is slightly more delicate than straight hair.  If you have the time for it, I thoroughly suggest processing hair by yourself to get the texture you want because the salon and home perms tend to be much less damaging than the industrial strength stuff that is used by Chinese vendors.  I also recommend using Indian hair because it is much softer to the touch than Chinese hair.  I permed a batch before, years ago, and I was super happy with the results and then hair just seemed to last forever.

Kaee,

I wasn't sure at first, but after taking into account that these are new, longer-length wefts that were virgin indian hair and the time it took for me to process them and produce this curl, I'd probably sell them for not much more than what I originally paid for them.  I *think* they were in the ballpark of $205-210 for all three, ideally, I'd like to sell for around $190 if I decide to do so.  Every time I look at that hair, I keep changing my mind.  I'm giving myself until my next hair appointment, which is another week, to really finalize my decision.

Chinese hair can be permed but you'd have to use an extremely strong alkaline perm to get a decent wave and it will def fry the strands.....
