Self’s first hair perm.
Don’t worry, it’s just curls at the lower half of hair.
But it is the first time.
Am slowly, slowly liking it. Despite the dry, brittle hair. And smelly chemicals. And suffering 4 hours of waiting. Because it only costs half the price from the normal rate at hair salons.
Hair perm virgin no more.
The next day
Hate stinking poofy hair now.
After wash hair, the curls are gone, replaced by nightmarish poofy frizz.
Instead of the mother’s fashion logic of bigger hair makes fatter face smaller, this afro-lookalike does not do such, but highlights self’s moonface more than ever.
Now look like the mother 15 years ago. Gah!!!
The next next day
Now look like a bloody lion.
