Here is some virgin Indian hair I curly permed last week.  I don't like the uniform curls that you get from Chinese vendors, as I feel it looks kind of unnatural.  I haven't decided if I am going to sell it or wear it.  I have a week to decide.

The lengths are 18, 22 and 26 inches

Too cute! Smile  Great job.  Much more natural than 'deep curly'; LOL.

Very nice work!

I've been thinking about perming hair soley for texture and leaving it straight. Not sure whether it would work. Does your hair actually feel and look coarser in person?

Yes, it did.  I took it out of the bag and I am running my fingers through it, now.  It's not the kind of texture where you feel your fingers are going to get ripped apart running your hands through it.

I used the Quantum perm firm, in the dark blue box.

When I rodded the sections, I made sure to use varying amounts of hair on each roller, for the most natural look.

It's easy to do, just very time consuming.

1. Saturate the hair in water, do not remove the ties from the weft, if you can help it.
2. Use the smaller perming rods.  For longer hair, you will want to use two rods per sectioned off strand.  Start the first rod at about half way down the strand and start the next rod at the end.
3. Use Quantum perm in the navy blue box.  First, put the perm on the hair directly and let it process as per the directions.  Next, fill a bucket half way with warm water and continue to process for about 1 hour. 
4. Shampoo out the perm and then fill the bucket again with a combination of conditioner (Silicon Mix is best) and warm water.  Leave the hair in the bucket for a minimum of 3 hours. 
5. Rinse out the conditioner well and let the hair air dry.

can you still color the hair after it has been permed?
also does it feel dry?

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.....
