This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

the perm.

digital perm to be exact.  i had a strong urge to get one a few years ago.. and i finally did it.  the difference between a digital perm and a regular perm.. is that a digital perm uses rollers that get heated, to give more of a  curling iron effect.  also they perm only to about eye level.. and i'm pretty sure it started in korea... so my korean bff made an appointment for me at a local korean salon. (tabong salon on long point)  $150 poorer and about 2.5 hours later.. i was done.  initially i was expecting large lush waves like namie amuro.
but they chopped off A LOT of hair.  like scary amounts.. to get rid of the split ends, as well as to add LOTS of layers. so instead it's a bit more like song hye gyo from full house.
which is not necessarily a bad thing.. and i've always heard a perm takes some getting used to.. but it's day 5 and i'm glad to say i'm starting to like.  and once i get more practice.. with 'styling' which is super easy.. and low maintenance.. which i'm all about.  although one thing, when it's wet it's a bit scary curly.  but once it's dry.. it's fantastic.
