When I was young (like ten or younger), I asked my mom for a perm (because she got one), and she let me have one–and it was horrible and awful and every terrible thing. I washed my hair as soon as we got home, and that helped manage the worst of it. My mom also cut my hair super short in the first or second grade, and I didn’t like me with short hair so I didn’t go short for over ten years after!
