[Hairstyle] Curly Upsweep (Perm Rods) | #WashDayExperience


My natural regimen and my stretching-turned-transitioning regimen hasn't been all that different. Plus so far all of my favorite products since work like a charm! Thank ya Jesus! Here's how my #washdayexperience went:




  1. Extreme Deep Condition- As I detangled my hair in sections, I applied Jessicurl Deep Treatment from root to tip then massaged in a little extra virgin coconut oil to seal the conditioner in. I covered with a plastic cap and sat under my heat cap again for about an hour. 
  2. Air dry- After rinsing the deep conditioner, I blotted my hair with a cotton t-shirt, applied a little extra virgin coconut oil in sections then wrapped it in the t-shirt to dry a bit more.  
  3. Leave-ins- My hair was about 80% dry when I applied a mist of Nexxus Humctress Luxe Leave In, Jessicurl Too Shea Conditioner and a dab of my hair butter then I set my hair on a mix of purple and white perm rods. I let them dry overnight. 

The Results:

My hair loves everything about Jessicurl Deep Treatment. It's crazy thick, dreamy creamy, and simply one of the most moisturizing deep conditioners that I've ever used. If they ever changed the formula, I'd cry. No seriously...I'd cry ugly Oprah crocodile tears. That's how much I love this stuff. 


I co-washed a few days before this #washdayexperience so I didn't shampoo. My scalp felt clean and my hair was actually well moisturized. I probably could have waited another day or two to wash but one thing that I've discovered since chopping is that my hair behaves a lot better when I wash every 3-4 days as opposed to washing once a week. I sorta knew this before I chopped but dealing with the tangling between all my textures just didn't make bi-weekly wash sessions it worth it. It seems to be a mortal sin to wash more than once a week around the healthy hair community but whatevs y'all. If it works---it works. If it doesn't---it doesn't. So far---it's working. 


I'm in love with the way that my curls turned out. The mix of purple and white rollers gave my curls dimension and a fullness that orange rods hadn't since I chopped. To style, I pulled all of the curls up and to right side then secured with a bunch of pins. Easy peasy!

How was your #washdayexperience?

Besitos!

  2. I LOVE this! I was just at Sally's eyeing the Perm Rods yesterday. I grabbed a pack of flexi's instead, but I think I'm going to head back over for the perm rods. Both were on sale. How many packs do you use for your head?

    1. Hey chica! Thanks! I used one package of both the purple and white. I just sort of alternate the colors as I install them. You can find a pic of the way my installation looks here. I didn't use end papers this time tho.

  4. KLP, what size rollers are you using like the diameters? You can post the links to post if you have already discussed this before. There's finally a shop here in South Africa that is doing US imports so i can actually get better perm rods now.

    i STRUGGLE to get rollers e.t.c. for these new lengths that i am getting to in the shops so i want to make sure that if i am importing its the right size.

    1. That's awesome chica. Here are the sizes that I used for the look above:

      Purple (Orchid)= 5/8'' http://www.sallybeauty.com/short-perm-rods/SLNCAR34,default,pd.html#q=perm+rods&start=2

      White = 9/16" http://www.sallybeauty.com/Perm-Rods-Long/SLNCAR33,default,pd.html#q=perm+rods&start=3

      Fingers crossed that you can get your hands on some! XOXO

    2. Kangopie, you should tell me when you are coming to Zim. I can kill for some magnetic rollers right now :)

      KLP those curls are beautiful.

    3. Thanks Yvette! Fingers crossed that you guys can get some! Order extras because if you are as clumsy as I am, you'll find a way to break the rubber string that holds the roller together. SMH.

  15. I wonder how you manage to get these perfect styles in every week! You inspire me but somehow I cant get myself to install rollers on my own or even Flexi Rods. How long do the curls last?

    1. Hey Evalyne! This set lasted 2 days---before I went beast mode at the gym! With less sweat---I'm sure that they could last for 3-4 days
