Ok, so yesterday... for fun, I got a straight perm. But I'd been really nervous about it. Yes, I'd had it done many times before. Yes, I love having straight hair.
However, this time... was different. I'd heard how damaging a lot of the Asian straight perms were (which are the ones I'd been using), and I heard that the Keratin ones which were supposedly really good for your hair, had formaldehyde in them! Gross!!
But I found myself running to the salon a lot lately, to get a blow out (here's where all the dudes check out--if they haven't already!). Also, since I cut my hair super short (which you can watch a video of here), my hair has never been so wavy. At first I loved these unruly waves. But as my hair kept growing, I knew less and less what to do with them! I'm a very low-maintenance person... so, having to 'deal' with my hair every day was becoming really annoying.
So... I made the decision yesterday to get a NEW Keratin treatment, that has NO formaldehyde in it! And I have to say, I'm extremely happy with the results! Anyone interested in a treatment like this, I highly recommend you go to Juan Juan Center in Beverly Hills, and ask for Glenn or Natasha, his assistant. Each person there does their own kind of straight perm... but Glenn's, in particular, is very safe. He really cares for hair.
