I remember hearing about perms a lot along time ago, but not much recently
 Do people still get perms?

And how about "cream rinse"?

I have naturally curly hair so I get a relaxer once every yr or so. 
Never had a creme rinse and doubt I'll ever get one. I use great shampoo/conditioner/mousse and rarely use hairspray.

I thought cream rinse was conditioner? My mom keeps calling conditioner cream rinse, so I assumed that was the old name for it.

People definitely still get perms today... they just don't do it the same way. Peoples perms used to be so curly and frizzy they looked like they were attempting an afro. Now people get straight perms, wavy perms, loose curl perms, etc. that look much better and more natural.

It's probably called an anti-perm.

a perm just means it's permanent... as in a premanent reshaping of the hair... so yes, you can perm it straight.

It's a different type of solution and process but it can be done.

i remember in the movie, 'malcolm x' he was perming his hair straight and that was back in the fifties. i'm sure they have better ways now to straighten curly hair--just look at oprah and almost every black female. they look like they were born with that straight hair.

I haven't had a perm for so long I can't even remember the last time I had one. Probably early 90s. spiral perms use to be popular last time I had one.
I rarely put any kind of chemicals on my hair. No fake colour etc. Its been years since I even put highlights in it. My hair is very soft and healthy looking.I don't have split ends and all that other damage chemicals do to it.

I remember in elementary school this Korean boy got his hair permed into kind of an afro style.

Looked absolutely ridiculous--don't know what his parents were thinking.

That's not what I said. You really have to roll your eyes because I suggested an african salon?
African women often get their hair professionally straightened and their hair starts out far more curly than most peoples hair, so they would have the more extreme chemicals for hair straightening. People with wavy to barely curly hair like mine could just use the same chemical they use for spiral perms to straighten hair. I'm just saying that not all salons would have the right solution, but african salons would definitely have it.

No, I really had to roll my eyes because that one statement alone without any explanation at all made you seem like an idiot.

This statement however, is much better. Now I understand what you're saying and can agree with it to a certain extent. My curls are long tight ringlets. I have had them straightened numerous times in a variety of methods. Not one was done with a solution made for African hair or done in an African salon but all were done in a safe/proper manner for the method used at that time. It's been years since I've done anything to my hair. I've learned it's easier to embrace the curl not fight it.

If you'd rather posters didn't assume then you may want to be more precise with your posts. We're only reading your thoughts not hearing the intent behind them. You might want to keep that in mind while posting since you're so touchy about someone misconstruing your words.

As for the rest of your comment, you're a name on a screen who just so happens to be posting during my downtime. What you may/may not appreciate is as important to me as two squirts of duck sh!t.  I hate to be so blunt about it as you seem  to be decent person and all but hey, it is what it is.

You're right, offenses happen to all of us by all of us unintentionally on a daily basis.

I'm not offended by Itsy nor am I upset with her. This is a forum and I have the right to out my opinion just like every other poster does... appreciated or not.

And all those times you attacked us regs, what was the reason? Other than having a little too much to drink?
I'm not trying to push anything negative with you but I'm wondering how are you going to call me out on my forum behavior when your forum behavior has been much worse? You've also taken a stout stand with me even though I was one of the first posters here to wub you   Sad
