New hair styles are softer and less curly than in the past, so be sure to talk to your stylist about a body perm.
A good body perm should have some definition when wet (showing a very slight curl pattern). When dry, however, it should not show anything but a slight movement.
If you are good at perming your own hair, a good tip is to perm your hair on a rod the size you would normally use and then, just before it is ready, remove the smaller rods and replace them with a rod a size or two larger. Then, when you neutralize the perm, you will have the support of the smaller rod, but the curl pattern of the large rod.
