I have a suggestion to try 1st. Bye the way, I have a Cosmetology degree. :-)
Get yourself an old school foam roller selection. On dry hair at night, roll up big sections of hair onto about 8-10 rollers. You can experiment the placement. Roll the ones at the top of the head up, whatever on the bottom. Your curl will last all day and it is easy. Once you get used to them, you will love them and the curl they hold. Spray with hairspray before removing rollers, let dry and take out rollers, run your fingers through the curl and you are set.
When coloring and perming the hair you can cause irreversible damage. I like to do one or the other......
