How to Curl Straight Hair With Curling Rods
A flexible curl rod makes creating smooth, beautiful curls easy and free of the damaging heat of curling irons.

Curling rods are great tools to create smooth, beautiful and long-lasting curls, without applying heat. Flexible curl rods are easy to use and work without damaging your hair, unlike some heat options that may damage it.

There are many sizes of Flexi-curl rods and they can be used to create a variety of curls. There are also many other types of curlers, including spring-loaded curlers, electric curlers, double curlers, and many more types that can be used depending on your preferences.

When wrapped in foil with a curler, thicker hair will result in a larger curl, while thinner hair will result in a smaller curl. Curlers can be used in two ways. Either you can apply the product to the hair first and then wrap the hair around the curler, or if you prefer, you can add the product first and wrap the hair around the curler. As a side note, I recommend putting the formula in a spray dispenser for easier application.

To curl your hair easily and efficiently, divide your hair evenly using a wide-toothed comb or hair brush, then coil each section onto your head with your fingers. This will make it easier for you to work on a section of hair while keeping your rest of your hair out of the way. Cold-wave perm rods provide a more secure hold. They allow you to keep your coils short and tight.

Begin the curling procedure by wrapping foil around a part of your hair at the front. The product should be applied at least two centimeters away from the root. Make sure the product is thoroughly distributed throughout the hair by brushing it. Wrap the tips of the hair in perm paper before curling.

Depending on your preference, you should use the curling rod inward if you want it to curl the hair toward the inside, or move the curling rod outward if you want it to curl the hair toward outside. The rod should then be bent and left in that position.

You can continue curling the hair vertically around another curling rod. Once again, you should add the product two centimeters away from the root. It's common for some people to add the product with a sponge, however, if you add the product before curling, you don't need to do that. Using one small curler and one larger curler on different batches of hair will give you a variety of curl sizes.

It is important to wait some time for your hair to curl after you have placed all the curlers. Depending on your hair type, curling can take a fairly long time. Those with more time can let their curls dry naturally, but it can take several hours.

Test the first curler and last curler you have added after fifteen to twenty minutes with a hooded hair dryer. You don't have to put the hair under the dryer anymore if the result wasn't to your satisfaction. Instead, wrap the hair in a towel to retain the heat, and let the person sit for a few more minutes.

Once that is completed, rinse the hair with water to remove the curling products, but do not remove the curling rods. If there is any extra water in the hair, wipe it with a towel. The best way to create a stronger, longer-lasting curl is to leave your hair a bit damp at this point. Flexi rods work best when your hair is not completely dry.

Next, spray after-curl product on the hair and leave it for fifteen minutes before you remove the curlers. To make sure the after-curl product reaches all the layers of hair, apply more after-curl product after removing the curls. Following spraying the hair with the after-curl product, you should wait another fifteen minutes, making it thirty minutes in total. Rinse the person's hair again after waiting this period.

A few tips to consider about curling the hair

A person needs to wash their hair before curling. Curling must be done on clean hair before going through the process.

You can style your hair with any styling product of your choice after the curl is applied. Do not shampoo the hair after the curl, just rinse it with water. If you want your curled hair to look wet, apply some olive oil to the curls while the hair is still wet after rinsing. You should not blow-dry curly hair, as this will cause it to expand and look frizzy. If the hair is mistreated, its curls will be ruined.

Curling black hair is not recommended for people whose hair is deep black hair or hair that has black dye. It is best to avoid curling these types of hair, as it will damage the hair and leave it without any curls.

Decolored or Meche hair will be damaged by curling products, because most decoloring and Meche products have adverse reactions with curling products.

It is a good idea not to curl hair that has been decolored and not to curl hair that has been decolored. This is especially true for people who color their hair frequently. As this type of hair has lost its strength, curling products will certainly damage it. It is better to curl natural hair, hair that has not been dyed for a long time, and that is not weakened or damaged.

Last but not least, I recommend that you stay away from products in the market that claim to work on both color-treated and healthy hair, since applying these products may result in your curl not holding or you damaging your hair. If you have hair that is dyed, you should only use curling products designed for dyed hair, because dyed hair is different from natural hair.
