Dry Perms For Better Days
The Process of a Dry Perm | Instagram
When doing a dry perm, we recommend using perm rods. They give you the best results. Perm rods come in many different sizes. You can choose the size according to the length of your hair and how tight you want your curls to be.
Here’s a list of hair tools and products that you’ll need to achieve the perfect Dry Perm:
- Leave-in conditioner
- Coconut oil
- Hair clips
- Wide-toothed comb
- Perm rods
- Hair gel
Now that you have all your tools ready, here are the steps that you can follow:
STEP ONE: Start With Clean Hair
- Make sure that your hair is freshly washed and conditioned before you begin to manipulate it.
STEP TWO: Leave-In Conditioner
- Apply your leave-in conditioner throughout your hair.
- Detangle your hair with your fingers or a wide-toothed comb.
STEP THREE: Seal In Moisture
- Add coconut oil to your hair to seal in the moisture.
STEP FOUR: Part Your Hair
- Part your hair into smaller sections and secure it with clips.
- Then, further, detangle each smaller section with your wide-toothed comb.
STEP FIVE: Add Your Perm Rods
- Working from section to section, grab a perm rod and begin to roll your hair from the centre.
- Secure the rod in place and then let your style dry. Continue the same process with the rest of the sections.
STEP SIX: Let It Dry
- Now that your hair is completely covered in rods, it’s time to let it dry.
- If you have a hooded dryer, you can sit under it for approximately 2 hours. If you don’t, then you can let your hair air dry for around 8 hours.
STEP SEVEN: Revive Your Hair
- When you’re ready to undo the rods, you can begin to unhook and unroll each section.
- Once you’re done, separate each curl in the direction of the curl using your fingers.
- Pick at the roots with your fingers to give your hair added volume.
- Finally, add some coconut oil to give it a stunning shine.

How To Maintain Your Dry Perm

Now that you know how to achieve the perfect dry perm, it’s time to bring you up to speed on how to maintain it:
- Hair prep before going to sleep is the key to a longer-lasting dry perm. We recommend that you section your hair into four or five smaller parts and loosely secure it with a small elastic band. The elastic bands should be secured midway around each section to make way for stretching and adding length to your hair.
- Then doing the good old trick of wrapping your hair in a satin nightcap will hold your curls in place and protect them from drying out and losing their pattern.
- When you’re ready to style your hair the next day, open the smaller sections and begin to gently fluff them out. When your hair’s fully unravelled; use your pick comb and fluff out your hair. Add in some curl crème to define your curls even more.
