7 Best Products For Permed Hair To Ensure Your Luscious Curls Stay Intact — PHOTOS

The '80s are back, baby, and that means perms are popular again. In 2013, perms hit the fashion runway at shows like Marc Jacobs and Lela Rose, and its left everyone wanting some waves in their hair. If you're ready to get a perm, maintenance is key. Here are the seven best products to care for your perm.

I have had wild, thick, dry curly hair my whole life. At worst, it's annoying and at best it looks (and feels) like deliciously healthy beach waves. When you have curly hair, quality, moisturizing products and a great haircut are key. While I can't help you with the latter, I can share some of my favorite products for curls. I like to apply product after showering and ringing my curls out with a soft T-shirt to avoid further damage, drying, and breakage. I try to stay away from water and heat, especially sunshine, which can turn curls into what feels like hay.

So why choose a perm? Whether you have naturally curly hair or went to the salon for your waves, a perm is a great alternative to the constant damage of treating your hair with hot tool products. Plus, a perm will save you tons of time: just wake up, apply some curling cream, and you're good to go. Easy!
