I have a used wavy lf that was really full and tangled,  so we,  (my sis and I) washed it and flat ironed it.  Now it looks alright but is still really thick.  I would like to perm the hair.   Can anyone with experience in perming a lacefront tell me what product to use and how to perm this unit???  Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!!!!! 
 
Thanks in advance.

go to sally's and get a natural apple perm its not a professional strength since its already been processed it won't be harsh.. get the rod size you want, follow the directions in the box.. wash it first and rod while wet, then apply the perming lotion, cover with plastic cap.. rinse out after the required time, which you can reduce if your scurred..Wink but it should be fine, and apply 1/2 bottle of the neutralizer while its still rodded and leave on for that required time usually 5 mins.. and then unrod and apply the remaing half of the neutralizer, and let it set for about a min or the required time.. then rinse it out, DON'T WASH IT.. you can't wash it for 3 days after perming to allow the curl pattern to set in... PLEASE DON'T USE BLACK PERMS ON THIS HAIR, IT'S NOT BLACK HAIR..embrace your inner white gurl and get busy.. when i allow it to dry i sit it on a towel on the floor and gather the hair around the base of the wig head so when it dries it curls tightly.. you can use the silicon spray matrix generic brand of shine on it while wet so it dries with some shine and moisture..but don't wash it for 3 days..

here's a thread that has pictures of the curl pattern for the rods and another discussion on perming..
 
 
oh yea when you do wash it, then do the silicon mix and nuking so it will be soft and silky b/c it alittle bit hard after perming until that first wash.. but 3 days after perming or you'll loose the pattern..

i'm also putting this in my sticky thread b/c this comes up so much it will be there for others to know what to do.. and also if you have a virgin unit, which i plan to do my own waves and curls in the future so that i know that i can get the wave's i want, i plan on ordering indian virgin and perming them myself.. at some BSS you can get a perm for white hair like the professional strength quantum perm, but you have to ask them if they have perms for white hair, and they usually do way back in a corner if its a large BSS store.. they will allow you to buy professional strength perms curly and straight for white hair if you ask without a license to do hair...in sally's they will not allow you to buy those professional strength unless you have a license, that's why the natural apple perm is the only one you can purchase without a license and its less harsh for re-perming a lf that's already been processed b4.. i have different sizes of rods, i don't like small rods, but the smaller the rod the more curly and kinky the perm.. the larger or medium sizes like the white or the pupple are medium, the pupple being the bigger of the two.. i have the orange but they are very large and you will definitely get a big water wave, barely curly at all..

Lady,  thank you so much for such a prompt response,  I had to print that off while I'm  at work to show my sis and girlfriends here in Seattle.  because we do want to perm/curl a unit.  But I actually  want to straightened this unit to make it softer and smoother, so that it wont appear so puffy or thick.  So now I know not to get a black hair perm,  so what white product would make the unit silkier,  smoother and less poofy,  with out thinning it out.  I will check back for suggestions,  gotta go,  girl........  it's time to get off and I'm still on this site............  I got it bad sisa,   ha ha  Doing it in Seattle.  smile
