HI! I am (still) thinking about getting a curly perm aka wave nouveau. I have some questions and would appreciate if you could help me with your experiences. 1. Is your hair more prone to tangles than with a relaxer? 2. Does it feel soft and silky or rough and dry? 3. Does the hair smell like ammonia when wet? 4. Are you "dependent" on curl activator or are frequent CO washes o.k.? 5. If you wear braids a lot do the curls stay the same? 6. How long does the process take? What should the stylist do to avoid overlapping? TIA and happy hair growing to all!
