It's fair to say that a perm revival in popular culture is unlikely, but many people, especially women, still use the styling technique. Perming is a chemical process, and whilst it can really dry hair out, it shouldn't usually cause hair loss.
I loathe Anchorman, and dislike the majority of Ferrell's work. Christmas for me has become an annual struggle to avoid watching Elf. These opinions have often been met with incredulity, and are frequently followed by a relentless barrage of 'hilarious' quotations from the film in question. Unsurprisingly, this only exacerbates how I feel.
