Hi everyone. I have naturally 3c hair which is ok but not to be seen in public. Now I think 3A hair is worthy of being shown off.
I like my 3b/c hair if I round brush it and let it get old and it starts to shrink back to natural a little so it ends up looking like a 3a/b
Now I saw an interesting product called curlformers they are sleeves that you pull your hair thru to set it.
But has anyone done this permanently with a permanent wave on large rollers?
I used to do this frequently years ago on folk when I was a stylist with a product called wave nouveau on orange or purple rods. But that was another lifetime ago. I am sure 3c hair could achieve this with just a regular permanent body wave product without a straightener step in it like wave nouveau.
I guess you might need to comb the permanent wave solution through for about 10 minutes first before you set it on large rollers. Combing it in for a while first would loosen the curl pattern up before setting it on a new size rod.
I would use green, black and brown perm rods for this which are 1 1/8"- 1 1/4" - 1 1/2" diameter respectively if you have long hair. For shorter hair maybe orange rods but no smaller.
Has anyone used a body wave on 3c hair setting it on huge perm rods or large rollers to enlarge their curl pattern?
I may have to get brave and try it one day.
Another question. for those of you who have 3A hair, what would you say is the diameter of your curls?
