Have you been looking for a way to perfectly curl your natural hair with little or no heat? Then a perm rod set on natural hair on natural hair is the hairstyle you’ve been looking for!
Perm rods are a plastic/foam tool that you can wrap around your hair and snap into place to achieve curls in your hair. The bigger the rods, the bigger your curls will be. The smaller the rod the tighter the curls will be. You can think of perm rods as bendable rollers!
The best way to wear perm rods is by using a hair mousse/styling creme before rolling and securing your hair into the perm rods. Perm rods are so weightless that you can sleep in them overnight. Also, for the best results, you should keep your perm rods in overnight or for a few hours before taking them out!
