Hi Everyone!

I have a few questions in regards to the curly perm. I am really interested in getting one mostly for its appearance and manageability, but I would like to know if curly perms are likely to have long-term success on kinky-coily or tightly curled hair.

I have read quite a bit about curly perms in various threads and I have heard about success as well as breakage, shedding, dryness, and oiliness. I was beginning to wonder if the chemical (ammonium thioglycolate) used in curly perms eventually causes damage to the point where the hair begins to break or fall out or if it's really a matter of care.

I am also curious if individuals with kinky-coily or tightly curled hair could use permanent brands like Quantum, Matrix, ISO and others. I have heard of dry curly perms like Wave Nouveau, Carefree  Curl, and Wave By Design. I am aware that in some cases double processing is done through a straightening of the hair first and then rodding with the liquid thio applied. I would like to be able to skip the first step if this is possible. I have read about the Gina Curl but I'm not able to have it done due to travel.

I would really appreciate your advice and information. Thankies! :o)

some of your questions are answered in the curly perm threads (I think there are 2 really long ones) as far as only doing the curl process and not the straightening, I haven't really seen anyone do it and everyone says its probably a bad idea, but no1 says why. I was actually considering doing that as well, but I suck at rolling my hair and idk that I will be able to find a stylist willing to do that. so pretty much im just bumping your topic and hoping you or some1 else is courageous enough to try it.

I have the same question and its very hard to find a topic about the "one process" curly perm. Its been 3 years that Ive been doing jerry curl and my hair is now very unhealthy. A hairdresser told me that it was possible to do a normal perm in one process (like "white pple's perm lol), which is healthier, but the result would be quite different. "Of course you will keep the natural thick texture of your hair as you dont apply the first process (straightener)" she said. She also told me that the curls would be less define than with an afro curly perm or at least different. Oh and of course the hair has to be natural to do this perm. 
But Im not sure, I would know more about it before doing it. Please if you tried the one process curly perm, share your experience Smile
