If you don’t by now what I love a most is a style that doesn’t take too much time or can last me for the week. Especially, with me being pregnant I don’t have time for me to have my arms be feeling like weights doing my hair for over an hour or two. So, if I can cheat a style and still get results then that’s the style for me. Since I returned natural which has been a total of 8 years now I have not once used perm rods. I know right I feel like I’m super late on this trend. I brought some perm rods about two years ago from Amazon that were around 3.00 and I thought I was getting a deal. Low and behold every single perm rod broke each time I put it in my hair, so I simply thought that it just wasn’t for me. It’s crazy because know I realize that it wasn’t my hair that was the problem it was the manufacturer. I went to Lenise at Canvas the Salon from our first event and when she put perm rods in my hair I was surprised and didn’t understand why her perm rods would stay and mine wouldn’t. I thought maybe it’s a special salon one that they had. Lol looking back I feel so stupid to think it was my hair that couldn’t achieve this style. So, fast forward to now I thought let me try this look again when I went to my local Sally’s Beauty Supply Store. Of course it didn’t hurt that they had the buy one get one half off sale either. Let me tell you I am too hype that I got them and not one of them broke. So, I been on this perm rod binge lately and I haven’t stopped.
At our latest event Curls And Cocktails, I rocked my cheat perm rod set that literally took me less than 30 minutes to do. I want to show you how I achieved this perm rod set so you can begin rocking it too if your in the mood to switch up your look. I referenced Natural Neciey video so you get a better idea on exactly what I did to get this look quickly right before bed.
NaturalNeiicey did a cheat perm rod set where she put her hair in flat twists all around and perm rod only the ends. In the ones I rocked at our event I used a combination of white and orange perm rods. I focused on using the white perm rods in the front so I can get the curly bang look. When flat twist the front of your hair make sure to make your flat twist going forward. If you want a little more volume in the middle make sure to separate the back and middle so you will have flat twist in the middle sections with perm rods at the end and also some in the back. When you sleep in the perm rods overnight which by the way can be uncomfortable but I try to think this is only for one night to get me through the night. However, when you begin to take apart you sections how you want it. Don’t forget to add that massive volume with your afro pick.
Overnight How to: I use to hate knowing how to do a style but not knowing how to keep it so I’m here to give you the scoop on how to make this style last. At night, i put my hair into three sections. One loose ponytail in the front and two pigtails in the back. This helped keep the form and shape, If you have an oversized bonnet that’s great, I haven’t purchased one yet so I used my scarf to keep my edges laid down then slept on my satin pillow case. If you have a moisturizing spray that doesn’t have water in the first five ingredients feel free to use that to give yourself extra moisture each night. I noticed my hair got drier each night so I would either put some jojoba oil or my Type 4 Creme by HoneyChild. If using the oil or type 4 creme you want to spritz it in your hand, rub your hands together then scrunch it in your hair to give your hair the added moisture it needs. Make sure not to do a lot of pulling so you do not add frizz or pull a curl out where it not longer looks like a curl.
