Dose a perm make your hair look like a natural curly and will it go away if I wash my hair?

I'm just curious I'm considering getting a perm but is it really worth it?

You should have your perm done by a certified cosmetologist. There are many types of perms that can be controlled by the rod size and solution used. A natural looking perm depends on the experience your beautician has. As far as your perm washing out, that will depend on your beautician as well as the condition of your hair. Some have certain spots on their head that don't take. Some lose curl sooner than others. Rule of thumb is to not wash your hair for 24 hours. Of course it will grow out, and you'll need touch ups. Again, just make sure you have your perm done by someone with experience.

Find someone who has a perm and have their hairdresser do yours. It can come pit natural if it's done right.

You can get body waves, curls, tight curls etc. It's all what you decide for the look you want. No, it won't wash out. The length of time it lasts depends on hair type; size of rods; type of solution; how good the hair dresser is... But will usually last for several months.

It won't go away if you keep your hair dry for either 24 or48 hours but after that wash it and it should last for about 6 months. haven't you seen legally blonde?? haha

A spiral perm looks natural and I think you can't wash your hair for 24 hrs after the person doing your perm can tell you when it's safe to wash your hair
