Hello Beautiful Maicurlies,
So today I wanted to do a quick post on my first attempt with one of my newest hair tools – Super Large Perm rods!
I actually purchased two different perm rods sizes from Amazon (I will provide links to both the sets at the end of this post) but for this particular style I used the black Jumbo Perm Rods.
- 36 x Diane Cold Wave Head Band ( 1-1/4 inch diameters) – Each pack contained 6 perm rods so I got 6 packs.
- 36 x Perm Rods Jumbo Tangerine (3/4 inch diameter) – Each pack contained 12 perm rods so I went for the option of 3 packs (it worked out cheaper that way)
I will say that the rods arrived as promised actually even earlier than anticipated! Payment and delivery went smoothly and like I said the perm rods turned up as anticipated so I do recommend buying from these sellers (based on my own experience). Please note: I was not asked or paid to mention the rods, the buyer experience or the point of purchase and I bought the rods with my own money.
I was working with super stretched hair (heat free) which started of as a twist out, then was stretched when I used a hair donought to make a bun and finally I had two flattwists. I used a little of my DIY Spray Leave-In Conditioner to very very lightly mist my hair (it was barely damp) just so my hair would take on the curl shape of the rods and I also use a tiny bit of gel right before twirling my hair around the rods.Using a hair net and satin scarf I let my hair set overnight (sleeping wasn’t as bad as I’d imagine it would be). The next morning using a little DIY Coffee Bean Infused Almond Oil on my fingers I took my hair down and separated the curls and that was it.
I really do love the results!
I need to practice a little on how I roll my hair because since the rods are so large it took a little getting use to (you know I am styling challenged lol). I will try different ways of rolling my hair to see if I get different curl results but for a first attempt I was happy. 😀
These are photos from day 3 of the same perm rod curls. Of course I was even happier with the results on day 3 because my hair was fluffier and bigger! Give me volume…give it to me!!!! 😀
Have you tried Jumbo perm rods? Do you have a particular rolling method? I would love to hear from you!
