Before | SourceAfter | Source A simple way so as to add waves to straight hair
Unfortunately, my family has not been blessed with curly or wavy hair. Now we have the straightest hair one could possibly have. There have been mornings I stood in front of the mirror for half-hour curling my hair only to have the curls fall out by the point I hit the front door. To get our hair to even bend is a serious accomplishment!
My youngest daughter has the same hair – board straight. So as to offer her some curly locks I’ve spent many a night braiding her hair to provide her waves that can last most of the day. She kept asking for a perm but besides the value on the salon – I am undecided I could roll her hair correctly. And if you’ve ever had a frizzy perm its likely from the hair not being rolled properly – in order that thought was definitely out!
One morning though I had an epiphany! We had just un-braided her hair and she had the most beautiful waves. I thought – hmmm– If her hair will wave after braiding it I bet if I put a perm solution on her braided hair the waves would stay!
I went to the drug store and bought a house perm for $12.95 and proceeded to experiment on my child’s hair. 40 minutes later – waves that stayed! HA!! It worked.
All the years of women (myself included) who sat in a chair for hours to get their hair rolled and permed and it only took one lazy, cheap housewife to figure out an easier technique to perm.
Now let me say – there are no big loopy curls. This can be a wave – adds some movement and body to her hair but no actual curls. That is OK for us though – it looks exactly prefer it does whenever you un-braid your hair after several hours and that’s the look we were going for. So – success!
The way to –
As I’ve said that is the best home perm you possibly can imagine. There are some things to remember though –
Follow directions on box for preparing hair and times. Hair have to be damp when permed so it needs to be fairly wet when braiding.
When braiding wet hair it can tend to become bunched – use a comb to assist keep the hair as straight and free of tangles as possible.
A detangling comb is best used on wet hair – do not use conditioner on hair before perm (see box directions). I bought the comb at the dollar store. Cheap and great for wet heads.
Be sure to get the whole braid saturated thru with perm and neutralizer solution.
Rinse very well to get all solutions out of braids.
The box says to unroll a strand of hair to check for curl – do at your individual discretion. I did not un-braid to check for curls as I felt it can be too difficult to get the braid back in original position.
That is it! Have fun!

I’m a hairstylist. Please remember to read the instructions like she said. All the perms I’ve used are not for use on wet hair. Her perm should have been different, so always double check! Also, don’t fret about unbraiding to check the curl. Some people’s hair takes curl way faster than others, and in the event you leave it on longer than that, your hair could get fried. Unbraiding slightly will not compromise the look of the curl in any respect because the perm solution makes hair ‘moldable.’ It will just take on the brand new shape. The neutralizer is more important because it would ‘freeze’ the molded hair into place. Hope I added some extra knowledge for you!
