Full Answer

  1. Prepare your hair

    Brush your hair thoroughly. Divide it into even segments, and secure each with an alligator clip.

  2. Wrap the first rod

    Release a section of hair at the front of your head, and spray both sides with hairspray. Hold a spiral rod next to that section, and wrap the roots of your hair around the top of the rod. Continue until all of the hair is wrapped around the rod, and secure it with a hair elastic at the bottom.

  3. Bend the rod

    Hold one end of the rod in each hand, and bend it down toward your neck. Cross one end over the other to secure it in the proper position. Wrap and bend the rest of the rods in this manner.

  4. Wait 20 minutes

    Leave the rods in your hair for at least 20 minutes.

  5. Unwrap the rods

    Unwrap the rods one at a time. Grasp the ends, unbend them, and roll the rod out of your hair. Set your curls with a light mist of flexible-hold hairspray.

    How is hair wrapped in perm rods?

    A:

    To create compact curls that grows bigger, such as a curly Afro, take the ends of the hair, and roll upward until the curler reaches the scalp. Roll toward the floor, and keep the hair taut. For elongated coils like Shirley Temple's, start the wrap at the end that has the clamp. Roll in a slanted motion so that the hair wraps around the rod in a spiral.
