PLAYING WITH PERM RODS
(and hidden truths on IG)
It's not too difficult to look confident on Instagram, even when ur feeling anything but. I said on >Facebook< that I intended to play around with perm rods on my hair last weekend and I did, and the results were pretty good. Despite the success of my hair play, I was feeling irredeemably and inexplicably ugly at the start of the weekend, so I decided to hide behind the camera phone for my HOTD shots; in fact I've yet to post them on Instagram...but I will.
The other thing that's easy to hide on IG, is dirty hair.
2 weeks is the longest I've gone without washing my hair in a while, and I made the huge mistake of using gel to set my already product-laden, dirty-as-heck hair, on perm rods. A mistake I don't intend to repeat.
I separated the curls but not too much because I quickly realised that the separation process was exposing my dirty hair.
(Dont judge me! Lol)
Perm Rod Pointers
A few things I learned from this style trial...
Hair will shrink-
This is actually quite fun for those with longer hair who want to play with a shorter look.
End papers minimise frizz and damage to the ends
Try fatter rods for longer looser curls
Its difficult to set the roller tightly at the roots
The are 2 locking options on the rods depending on how securely you want to lock the rod.
