How To: (Dry) Perm Rod Set on Fine Natural Hair

Hey Maicurlies,

I am back with another styling video. 

(Dry) Perm Rod Set on Fine Natural Hair

                                          (Dry) Perm Rod Set on Fine Natural Hair

This is my Perm Rod Set done using orange perm rods. I bought the perm rods on Amazon (here).

My method is the same as everyone else’s (nothing special at all) but I love the results I get. 

If you have seen my hair before you will know that I have what I call fine and thin natural hair. It is long but still on the fine and thin side and I usually prefer setting my styles on dry hair versus wet hair. Starting with dry hair usually results in fluffier and fuller looking curls. When I set on wet/damp hair I get great definition but it lacks the fullness I like so I opt for dry styling. 

Tools/Products Used:

The following morning:

Method:

Starting on dry hair that was stretched out I first separate my hair into sections (about 8) from which 2 – 3 perm rods will be used per section. I ever so slightly spritz my hair with water, followed by my DIY Creamy Leave-in and detangle. I then use a tiny dab of gel for hold and definition and then twist the root of my hair (twirling it)  2 – 3 times and then wrap my hair around the rod. I do a twisting motion at the same time as I wrap my hair around the rod. I used a total of 26 perm rods, leave them in overnight with a scarf protecting my hair during the night. The next morning I take a little oil to my fingertips to take down the perm rods. I then separate my hair by unwinding the root in the opposite direction of how I twirled my hair and then separating the hair. Once I have separated at least once I lift my roots and fluff my hair with an afro comb and continue to separate and shape till I am satisfied with the results.
