So I know it’s been a while since my last blog post. Things have been busy with the move and getting settled in. This is my first post living in Atlanta, and I still have a lot to take care of. But for the most part I’m all settled in, job hunting like crazy, and spending a lot of time with my mom.
My mom’s friend is a stylist at a salon in a town near Atlanta where they do the Thermal Reconditioning/Japanese Straightening/Magic Perm/Whatever. Here is a step by step look at how the procedure goes. Please keep in mind that timing on each step is going to differ dependent on the hair length/thickness/texture, etc.
This is what my natural hair looks like. I have been getting the “Magic Perm” done once a year every year since I was 16. And although some of these companies claim that once you get it done, the “already straightened” hair stays straight forever – this isn’t true. At least in my experience over the last 9 years. Like any other perm, the texture of your natural hair comes back until you do the procedure again.
If you liked my results and are in the Atlanta area I highly recommend this salon and stylist! Her pricing starts around $150 dependent on hair length/thickness/texture. Very reasonably priced compared to most places that start around $200-$300 and go as high as $1,000! 🙂
