Q:

How do you make Jheri curls?

A:

To make Jheri curls, use a softener to loosen the hair, set the hair on perm rods, and add a solution to the hair to curl it. Apply activator and moisturizer daily to maintain the hairstyle. The perm process can take a couple hours.

  1. Buy supplies for styling and maintaining the Jheri curls

    A softener is needed; this is sometimes called a rearranging cream. Perm rods are needed to set the hair. Curl activator spray and moisturizer are needed for daily upkeep. The curl activator spray is greasy and can cause stains. A plastic cap is needed to prevent the hair from drying while sleeping.

  2. Create the Jheri curls

    Curly hair is necessary for the hairstyle. Use the softener to make the hair hang more loosely. Put the loose hair on perm rods to hold it in place. Add a chemical solution to permanently curl the hair.

  3. Maintain the hairstyle

    Apply the curl activator spray every day to keep the curls in place, and moisturize to keep the hair from drying out. Wear a plastic cap when sleeping as the hair can also dry out at night. Do not wash the hair as the styling products would wash out. Go to the salon for touch ups when the hair grows out.
