I’m only 6 weeks out but I’m getting a touch up on Thursday smh. Plus color. I need the color more than I need a perm but I definitely have enough new growth. I went 12 weeks during quarantine and never again. Grateful I have an awesome stylist who knows what he’s doing. (He’s been doing my hair for 17 years...most of his customers are at minimum BSL. Alot are MBL and longer) Six weeks is about all I can handle, 7 weeks TOPS. I’m going to try and wear my hair down more often but I’m going through menopause and it’s a little past BSL and it’s just too hot! Now I see why menopausal women cut their hair.
