The curl pattern on the left is her natural curl pattern with some demi-permanent haircoloring. The one on the right was texturized with Fiberguard Affirm Mild relaxer for about 10 to 12 minutes. The real lesson is this: If your natural curl pattern does not look like the curl pattern on the left hand side of the picture, then you are not going to get the texturized curl pattern on the right hand side of the picture.
So for all those "kiddie perms" that people buy hoping for the "perfect" curl pattern. Just remember that your finished product really is determined by the type of curl pattern that you start with.
For some people the curl pattern on the left hand side may be the final texturized results based on a kinkier, coily curl pattern from the start. With this being the case, paying for a texturizing service may be a waste of time if you are still wanting the curl pattern on the right. These are the cases where I really would love for people to embrace locks. Even consider microlocks without investing heavily into the proprietary Sisterlocks.
There is another blogger at junglebarbie.blogspot.com that I absolutely adore . . . traditional locks can be so beautiful!
