Hi Everyone! I am new to the forum, but I would also like advice about curly perms or texturizers. I have heard and learned a lot through a number of posts concerning curly perms (from breakage to shedding, dryness, and oiliness) but I would really like to know about the possibility of long-term success with the curly perm for kinky-coily or tightly-curled hair. The approximate length of my hair when stretched is about 4.5 inches. I am interested in a curly perm or something more like the one-step chemical process more-so for the appearance and also length with styling. Any advice and information is greatly appreciated.
