D.I.Y Perm Rod Set

Last weekend I attempted my first perm rod set for my birthday dinner. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out but I decided whatever the outcome I would work with it.

You will need:
Perm Rods - I used 59 in two different sizes
Moisturiser
Oil- for shine
Gel/Mouse/Setting Lotion - a product that will help the curls to set
Time- preferably over night

Instructions
1) Part the hair, starting from the back
2) With each section moisturise and seal, apply some oil and a little bit of gel
3) Wrap the hair around the perm rod from the bottom up making sure your ends are smooth
4) Roll the rod upwards until at the scalp and secure
5) Once completed wait until your hair drys
6) Once dry apply oil to your hair and take rods down and style

I did mine on freshly co-washed hair to help my hair set

Sorry about the quality of my photos these were taken on my phone.

At first I wasn't sure about the results but after I played around with it I loved it. In the end I opted for an updo created with hair slides and bobby pins. I'm not sure why I haven't tried a rod set before. I'm hoping the more I practice the better they'll become. I paid 99p for each pack of 12 perm rods in my local beauty supply store.... It's a good investment if you ask me.

What do you think? Have you tried a perm rod set before?
