    Exclamation Jheri Curls! - How do I get my hair like that?

    Does anybody know how/what products to use to get Jheri curls? My hair is already afro-ish but how do I get my hair like MJ's? Do I use relaxant or not? I'm mixed raced so I'm not sure whether relaxant would make it go totally straight or not.

    Just hair similar to these pics:

    This is a Michael Jackson forum, right? And nobody knows how to get Jheri Curls?

    Go to your local grocery or drug store, find the hair care isle, locate the black hair care section and purchase a Jheri curl (also called gel curl, jelly curl). be sure to buy extra Curl Activator and remember, in a month or so, you will need to touch up your roots :winking:

    ^ There is no black hair care section because there isn't that many black people in my city I'll see if there are any products on the internet!

    unbelievable as it may seem to those in the USA, in Europe black hair care products are not that easy to find. Unless you live in a predominetly black community, the majority of drug stores/ grocery stores/ pharmacies dont have a black hair care section.

    My suggestion is to find your nearest afro/carribean hairdressers and ask them

    MJJHISTORY, where in Scotland do you live as I can reccommd a very good afro/carribean hairdressers in Edinburgh where one of my friends gets her hair done

    (good lordy, the white girl explaining about black hair!!!)

    Dreads/dreadlocked hair is where you twist sections of hair as it grows and the twists grow into long ropes of matted hair, think Bob Marley

    jheri curls are a softening/loosening perm of blak hair, the hair is treated then set on perm rollers, eg Michael in the 80's

    Let me make this perfectly clear


    YOU DO KNOW WANT A JHERI CURL


    1.It's messy
    2.It's been out of style since 1992
    3.The whole jheri curl kits are RARE
    4.It's just not a good look anymore and hasn't been in a LOOOOONG time

    Where I live, some older folks still wear curls. Sometimes younger people will have it Mario Van Peeples style - short curls at the top with the sides faded. It comes out better if you go to a shop and do it, rather than getting a home kit.

    Sometimes you have got to take a risk and not be the sheep who follows the crowd. Besides, Michael has never really wore anything that was in fashion. It became fashionable because Michael wore it.

    That's an s-curl, and I had one of those

    and I'm paying for it because the chemicals damage your hair and my hair is recovering from it
