As planned, I went to the salon on friday. I was VERY nervous and was really hoping that I would not leave looking like Cousin Pearl. Well. Here is my experience:
I arrived at 5:30 and she immediately had the shampoo girl start on me. After a conditioning treatment, she lightly blow dried my hair on a warm setting. Once my hair was 80% dry, she placed me under the dryer. After sitting there maybe 10 minutes, she got me out. She then gave me a good ole press and curled my hair with some marcels.
When she whipped me around I could not hide my smile! I LOVED it. It looked light and bouncy. I had MAJOR movement. Unfortunately the humidity stole my curls before I made it home...but once I wrapped my hair...it was silky and bouncy.
I will DEFINITELY be back in two weeks. My hair is not the length I would like, but it is nice and thick and a decent length.
