    I'm thinking of doing it. It's really popular in Japan, and we have a salon here in SF that has had so many great reviews on yelp.

    It's a really lite body wave that doesn't use a lot of chemicals.

    My hair is so straight and doesn't hold a curl very well...I've always wanted long wavy hair.

      I have not heard of it, but I am interested. My hair is a bit wavy, but not throughout. I've always wanted more waves but have been too scared of perms after childhood experiences :)

        I just googled it to see some pics and the waves look really nice, I wonder how realistic the photos are though (i.e. are those typical results or not). Is this only done in asian hair?

          I've heard of it (I'm obsessed with hair..heheh). I know people that have gotten it done and it looks really nice. I would recommend all the Japanese techniques they do (thermal reconditioning for people who want straight hair and digital perm for people who want wavy hair). If you like it def get it done. But I would wait till after your wedding just in case something were to go wrong. If you use a good person you should have no problems but its better to err on the side of caution.

            Interesting!!

            I didn't know what a digital perm was so I wikipedia'ed it!

            _____________________________
            What is digital perm
            A digital perm is a perm which uses hot rods with the temperature regulated by a machine, which has a digital display, hence the name. However, the process of the perm is quite analogue. The name “Digital Perm” is also copyrighted by a Japanese company, PAIMORE Co.,Ltd.<http://www.paimore.com/>. Hair stylists usually call it a “hot perm”, but it is commonly known as a “digital perm”.

            A normal perm basically requires only the perm solution. A digital perm requires a (different) solution plus heat.
            This type of perm was developed in South Korea, and now popular in both South Korea and Japan.

            Difference between a normal perm and a digital perm
            The biggest difference between other perms and a digital perm is the shape and the texture of the wave.

            A normal perm, or a “cold perm”, makes the wave most prominent when the hair is wet, and loose when it is dry. The hair tends to look moist and as locks.

            A digital perm makes the wave most prominent when the hair is dry, and loose when it is wet. Therefore you can create the dry and curly look of the curl iron or the hot curler. The digital perm requires heat, so it is also called a “hot perm” in comparison to the “cold perm”.

              Sounds cool! I have the opposite problem and like Glenda advises I would probably wait till after the wedding!

                That's my dilema right now...I want to get it done before the wedding so that the waves will stay, but i'm scared it might turn out bad.

                  that's my dilema. I want to get it before the wedding so that my hair will actually hold a curl for more than 1 hour, but I'm also scared it might mess up my hair...

                    I've been dying to get one of these. My hair is short though, so I don't know how it would look. I'm not patient enough to grow it out either.

                      I have not heard of it but the photos (after) look great.
                      This one kind of freaked me out
