FUNNY FRIDAY: Yes, I remember those home perms – do you? [film & pictures]
YES, I Remember Those Perms
Dorothy Graham Gast
All around the whole family was telling me to give it few days and I’d love it. Instead I washed my hair in a Tide/Halo solution every day for a week and swore not to get messed up again like that.
Later when weekly hair-styling was expected part of the professional look of a teacher, I prayed, “Lord with 4 young children at home I don’t need to waste the money and time for a weekly trip to a salon.” The results of the past trips were over-baked hair and thinning tresses.
“Lord, show me a better way.”
My hair was cut short, and brushed back.
So it remains simple:
Shampoo in the shower,
Brush it away from my face and let it dry as I go on my way.
Hey, I never claimed to aspire to Beauty Queen.
