In this video, I will show you how I get soft, voluminous, and big curls with a perm rod set.
I start off on freshly washed, deep conditioned, and air-dried hair. I washed my hair 2 days before this video and set my hair in buns while wet and completely detangled. Then, I let my hair air dry for 2 days. My hair was already separated into two parts. I separated those sections in half.
Since my hair was completely dry, I sprayed with a water and rosemary oil mixture. The base of all of my hairstyles begins with water and leave-in conditioner to provide as much moisture as possible. Then I cover the section in oil. The last 2 products I use are for hold. I used lotta body (and water) spray and Affirm foam lotion.
I decided to use the orange perm rods. Securing the perm rod at the ends and twisting around the rod all the way up.
I chose to avoid heat and let my hair air dry for 24 hours. Sleeping can be uncomfortable so I usually part my hair straight down the middle to allow for me to lay back comfortably (see video) and cover with a large silk bonnet.
I cover my hands in argan oil to add shine and reduce frizz and begin to unravel the perm rods in the opposite direction I secured them in. Once all the perm rods are out, I cover my hands and oil again and separate each curl.
I made a defined part down the middle and on each side. I wore this style with a side part (on each side), a middle part, and half up/ half down.
Until next time,
