Perm Rod Sets
Perm rods sets are similar to flexi rod sets, however the curls are tighter depending on the size of the rod. The first difference between a flexi rod set and perm rod set is that flexi rods are soft, long rolls, while perm rods are plastic, hard, and have small security device that secures the rod once you place it in your hair.
You can use the same products in the same order to create your perm rod set as the flexi rod set. This style can also be done on both wet and dry hair. There are a variety of perm rod sizes, and you can use a mixture of them to create different styles (like a Faux Tapered Cut)
When you install perm rods you can use end papers to keep your ends together and they make the take down much easier than with out the papers.
It is important to remember to take down all of your perm rods the same way, because some of your curls will come out looking a bit different depending on the way you pull or tug. Because there are some pieces on perm rods that snag, you want to be extra careful that you don’t break off your hair.
Just like flexi rods, perm rods are great for your entire head or for blending just your relaxed ends when you braid or twist your natural hair and add the perm rod to just the relaxed portion, this is known as a twist and curl, or braid and curl.
All three of these styles make it possible to blend relaxed or transitioning ends with your gorgeous new growth. They may seem a little tricky, but with practice and the perfect set of products, you can make these styles look perfect! The best part is that these are still great styles once you return to your natural hair.
What’s your favorite way to blend transitioning ends?
