In 2008, I did a digital perm for the first time.
That experience left me with pretty curls, but I distinctly remember hating the actual process, especially when I was hooked up to the machine since it felt like my hair was being yanked out of my scalp! Regardless, I found myself wanting to get a perm again, and I decided to do it digitally again at this salon in my neighbourhood for 80,000 won ($75 USD).
Here is how my hair looked before the perm.
Then here is me hooked up to the machine, looking like some creepy sci-fi Medusa. This machine did not yank on my hair, so I liked that much better. Unfortunately, I had to endure the heat from the rods. Being very heat-sensitive, I did not enjoy that!
After the machine, they kept my hair in regular perm rollers for a while.
This is the end results.
Later on, though, the curls became really loose :( I ended up returning to the salon to redo the perm. The second round yielded much better results.
Thus ends my digital perm adventure. Time to leave my hair alone!
