And then, decide how large you want your curls to be to get the proper sizes of perm rods or rollers. Next, part your hair into sections and roll each section of hair up onto a perm rod. After you finish, dip each of your hair section with perm rod into the hot water. Let the hair air-dry and then gently remove the perm rods. At this point, the curls is tight and springy. If you want them to look fluffier and softer, you can use your fingers to comb the hair gently.
