I would never suggest it because my mum has always been against putting chemicals on hair and also her hair is very short so there would be nothing to crop and she is of mixed race (half black) and so her hair is curly anyway so why perm already curly hair? People assume I straighten my hair because a lot of black women do and I say no I don't. It is naturally straight like my dads. I have my mums hair colour but my dads texture and he was 100% white. If I can be bothered to use the correct hair products my hair can feel like satin after a wash and blow dry. Anyway this is not a hair forum it is a dementia forum so I wont go on about it any longer. I have not spoken to my mum in a couple of days and will not ring her and when she rings me I will just take it from there. Everyone says I look fine as I am, its only my mum and if I tell her what they say she will only say they don't want to hurt my feelings and that is when I realise it is her dementia talking.what would Mum say if you ask/tell her to have a perm?? or crop her hair??
Mind you, last night online I saw an article which said, as women get older they should have shorter hair to look younger so hair should be no longer than the chin (bob) to make the face look youthful. I think it depends on the individual because Twiggy still has long hair and she is in her 60s
