One thing that always scares first-timers is how tight the curls are initially. When you decide to get your hair permed be prepared for this, and don't panic when you find that the curls don't look the way you expected right away. Within a very short time the curls loosen and, depending on the size of the barrel used to create your curls, you will have that much loved Victoria's Secret wavy hair men melt for. Don't be quick to judge. It is the nature of digital perms to loosen over time, from tight curl to tousled wave.
