How I Maintain My Perm Rod Set

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

Ever since I posted my first perm rod set video, I've gotten questions on how I maintain this style. It took a little trial and error, but I've finally found my stride with both installing the perm rods and also with maintaing the style over a few days. As I demonstrate in this video, I use the pineapple method to help keep the curls in tact while I sleep. But I also prolong the wear of this style by not immediately separating or fluffing out the curls on the very first day. Doing it this way allows me to get anywhere from 3 - 5 days of wear out of each perm rod set. In the case of the perm rod set featured in the video, I re-styled it with smaller perm rods after three days of wear (see second picture above) because I was going to a wedding and I wanted a different look (as well as a fresh set for the occasion). But I otherwise could have maintained the original perm rod set for a few more days using this method :)

Cleansed hair with Kinky Curly Come Clean 
Conditioned with TRESemme Naturals 
Sealed with: Emu Oil (Vitacost brand) 
Leave-in: Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk 
To set the style: Blue Eco Styler gel 
To separate the curls on day 2 I coated my hands with sweet almond oil.
