My girl friend has been using Pin-up end curl for years. Recently she had spent weeks trawling all the usual suppliers for this product. Nobody seemed to stock it any longer. I had a look and finally got her to look on the computer. Sure enough, they are on Amazon. (Amazon is always my first point of call.) We ordered 6 boxes. Needless to say, the product is genuine and current and delivered well packed in an outer carton. Problem solved and I can call my girl-friend 'Curly' again.
Exactly what we were hoping for. If you are looking for a not very expensive and the quality is very good product, then I think this is worth your purchase. the next will continue to buy can't go wrong with that! Got this as a present for my Mom & she loves it. Amazing product and fast service.
This stuff works great for short hair, but only if you're careful with how you treat your hair following perming. For example, since perming after washing my hair: - I ALWAYS use the curl-up pre-perm hair spray. This stuff is a MUST for maintaining the condition of your hair and maintaining the curls. I find that if i don't use it after every wash, my hair no long has defined curls after a few weeks. Use it after every wash however, and the curls look amazing for months. - I never blow-dry as this seems to straighten out the curls and the heat can cause damage to your weakened hair and cause it to frizz. Honestly, it just looks much more defined/curly and sleek/healthy for so much longer if allowed to towel and air dry. I also avoid brushing my hair until after it has dried fully.
Other tips: - This end curl kit contains just enough solution to perm hair up to just about shoulder length. If your hair is longer than this, you should buy the full size kit. - This stuff stinks. I recommend you prepare it in a closed off room with an open window! - My hair tangles and breaks a little bit more easily after perming. It looks much less messy without needing to brush, but brushing can be more difficult. It isn't easy to explain, but because of this, I would not recommend using any home perming if your hair is longer than shoulder length. Just get it done professionally unless you really know what you're doing. - If you do use the kit and you aren't happy with how it looks, or get tired of the curls, just condition heavily, don't use the pre-perm spray, and blow dry your hair on a low heat, and your hair will gradually stop being curly after a few weeks. (at least this works for me).
