Can I use a curling iron on my hair after permanent hair straightening?

February 10, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

It is highly recommended that you do not wash, kink or curl your hair for the first 72 hours after having permanent straightening done. After this waiting period it is said that curling your hair is fine although I have read that many women who have chosen to curl their hair after this straightening process have been left with some permanent ‘kinks’ as well as many have found that their hair will not hold the curl or waves for very long.

If you have a special event coming up and would like to have some curls or waves it is suggested that you go back to your stylist who did the straightening and discuss with them about having your hair curled. Your stylist should have the right styling products and tools to help you achieve your desired look without leaving any permanent kinks or curl.

This permanent straightening process is also known as Japanese Hair Straightening, Re-bonding, Japanese Straight Perm, Thermal Reconditioning, Thermal Reconstruction, and Ionic Straightening.

Curls

Depending on the size of the curls you want you first need to choose your tool. A curling iron with a large barrel will create large, loose curls where as a smaller barrel will create smaller, tighter curls such as ringlets.

Once you know what size of curls you want, using the curling iron is pretty much the same no matter what size the barrel is.

Always start with dry hair; curling you hair when it is wet will leave you with fried and damaged hair. If your hair is medium to long in length it is easiest to start at the back of the head whereas if you have short hair start at the crown.

Take a 1 to 2 inch section of hair and starting at the ends clamp the ends of your hair into the iron and roll the hair until you are about 1 inch from your scalp. Hold the iron for about 10 seconds then gently release the iron and let the curl fall. Repeat with the rest of the sections of hair.

Once the curls have cooled down you can set your hair with holding spray and use your fingers to help shape the curls.
