    2. Alysia,
      Why would you want to do that to your hair?
      Although some people can learn to perm at home, I still would only trust my hair to a professional.
      It takes time, patience and experience in not only rolling the hair correctly, but being able to analyze what kind of condition the pre permed hair is in and what type of perm to use.
      Good Luck ( go to a professional)
