It basically is the same amount of damage that you would get from a perm or relaxer... meaning that applied properly and taken care of properly it is not terrible for your hair.

Well, if you want to care for it really well, any hair is high maintainance... if I had one I would use the same products/deep condition and moisturize my hair like I normally do.

It really does look just like a jherri curl.

Wave nouveau! aDoir, you are going waaaayyy back! I don't remember them being so much like a jheri curl though. From my recollection, the curls were not as tightly wound as a j.curl (had larger, looser curls) and they were not as "wet" looking. I agree w/ nyx, as long as you apply & take care of your hair properly, I'd think it would be fine....

hey girl. i used to go to africanhair.com where u can find so much info on the wave nouveau but it closed down so now im trying to find a new place to discuss my wn.  i was really surprised reading about how much ppl are against it. but i have the wave by design which is like a wave nouveau. its basically the same thing. and honestly im lovin it.  it was real hard at first cause i had to cut all the perm out n my hair was real short and i had like this small afro but in a few wks it would be a yr. since i got the wn and really i have no complaints. its not hi-maintenance at all which is why i got it. its easy to take care of. it looks real cute if the right person does it for u. u gotta make sure the stylist knows what they're doin or they'll f- up ur hair. i use real big rods so my hair is curly/wavy.  it takes just a few minutes of doing it in the morning. so yeah im really glad i got it and i dont c myself going back to a regular perm any time soon.  so honey dont listen to all these ppl who dont know what the wn is all about but telling u anyway that its no good cause they dont got it. i do and im telling u if u get it n get it done by the right stylist then u wont ever want to get rid of it

I so agree with runawaydream.  The Wave Nouveau has been seriously updated from the 80's.   It doesn't look like a jheri curl anymore.  It's made to look natural.  I know a couple of people with one and it looks like their hair is naturally curly/wavy.

Now, If you WANT your 'soul glo', you can always spray a pint of activator on it!    You don't have to, though.

yeah i had the same name. i was hoping id bump into someone who used to go on there. i loved that site. i got some really good advice from there. i've been searching forums too i thought maybe all the old africanhair members all went somewhere else but i really cant find anything. i have some pics of my hair but none are digital. however, my friend has a digital camera that she takes w. her everywhere and im sure she has a few shots of me. ill try to talk her into emailing it to me. cant make any promises tho. so was ur name aDior_me on african hair too?
