I did a digital perm recently for CNY. According to my friend, digital perm is better as the chemical will not touch your scalp. And they perm your hair using a cream based spread with electric curler (im not sure whether it is call curler or not) where they connect the curler with a 'machine'. I did normal perm last time and it really spoilt my hair. But of coz price wise, digital perm is more expensive

yea..i do like it. I didnt colour it but the curls are still obvious (colour n perm at the same time really spoilt my hair last time, too dry!) My hair is about 3/4 inch long pass shoulder.If you dont like it to be too curly,u can go for the bigger (perhaps middle size) curler. It all depends on how lasting u want the perm to be. Some of those japanese style perm like curl only at the end of your hair will not last long and u need to blow dry ur hair to maintain the shape. If you have really thick hair, dont worry, the hair stylist will trim it thin so that your perm wouldnt come out like a lion head. u know what i mean :P

have u got ur perm done? Most ppl will go for the colour n perm at one shot, but like i said i find it really damaged my hair.It all depends on individual. I'm still undecided whether I should go for colour or not..

I got my digital perm for RM 190 + 30 for treatment. Is near metro prima (not sure whether u know where is the place or not)

ya if colour n do digital perm at one shot should be fine.. but it depends on the brand of the chemicals... korea one is very gud... it's not as strong..

is water perm = normal perm (cold perm)

if so...cold perm is more curly than digital perm.. and it last longer...and cold perm can perm near the root to ur hair...

digital perm does not last longer.. but it's more natural n easier to manage..usually if u opt for japanese or korean curls u should choose digital perm.. and the most important thing is digital perm does not damage ur hair as much as cold perm..if u opt for very very curly hair or u have very short hair u should choose cold perm..

that's all i learnt from my experience n explanation from my boss...

anyways dun worry one.. when u go to the salon n after u tell them what kind of curls u want they will choose the suitable method for u :)

Hi Alice, I did my water perm liao. I do like it anyway and that they coloured my hair at the same time lo. So sad cos my hair even look drier..!! The cost at RM250 all in including colour plus 3 treatments.
