I struggled through junior high trying to figure out what to do with it until fate and Mom, again, stepped in. I had to have a major operation on my spine and would need to be in the hospital for a long time. Mom thought a perm would tame the mane and ease the management. It was genius. The frizz went away – FOREVER – and the bramble bush became oodles and oodles of ‘cascadading’ curls.
I have spent more money on conditioner in the last eight months than in any five years of my life. But it was so worth it! The Hair grew long and survived until it was long enough for the ten inch ponytail.
My lifelong friend, stylist Karen Mullen of Hair with Flair did the honors and a cute short cut.
