perming rods:
 
The Rods Themselves
perm%20rods        Perm rods are designed on a universal standard. The various sizes are color-coded, even though the manufacturers may use shades of the same color that vary from other manufacturer’s rods of equivalent size. The key is to learn what basic colors mean, since some of the rods may not be readily visible as being different in size.
       (It should also be noted that perm rods come in both concave and “straight” versions. The concave rods get slightly thinner toward the center and flare at the ends. This has two benefits. One, it allows the rod to sit snugly against the scalp with hair wound around it – to a point at least. And two, it gives a slight variance in the curl making it looser to the outside of the segment for a more natural look. The straight rods have the benefit of creating a uniformly shaped curl.)
       Let’s take a look at the rod color groups: (Listed lengths are approximations, not meant to be hard rules.)
       Red: Red rods are the smallest rods made, and are typically only used on short hair lengths to create tight, kinky curls. The hair lengths that would most often require such small rods are those less than 2 to 2-1/2 inches.
       Blue: The blue rods are larger than the red and could be used on the shortest hair lengths to give larger curls, but also can be used to give longer lengths (say from 2 to 3-1/2 inches) a nice tight curly style.
       Pink: Pink perm rods are the next stage, and are usually good to give tight curl to hair that is from 3 to 4 inches in length. It can be used on the shortest lengths to create looser curls and wave, or on the 2 to 3-1/2 inch range for loose curl.
       Gray: A gray perm rod is the usual “all purpose” thickness. It is generally good for giving a nice tight curl to hair that is 3 to 5 inches in length, or to create looser-looking curls in shorter lengths of hair.
       White: White rods are generally the largest rods used in creating a “curly perm” style. The rods are ideal for hair that is 4-1/2 to 6-1/2 inches in length and create a nice tight curl in this length of hair. Used in shorter lengths of hair the curls will appear looser and can even create simple body in short lengths.
       Purple: The purple perm rods are generally called “body wave rods” because they create such large curl that most salons use them for body waves only, unless the client has really long hair and wants lots of curl.
       Occasionally, you may find slightly larger body wave rods that are orange in color, but these may not be commonly found.
 
Finishing the Style:
       In perms designed for curl, the hair will usually be styled afterward to maximize the volume in the style and emphasize the curl. This may involve blow drying using a diffuser and scrunching the hair, or it could be a matter of cutting the hair to maximize the curl by evenly distributing the weight of the hair.
       For body waves, the hair may not be styled to utilize the curl created by the perm. Instead, the purpose may be to create added texture in the hair to allow the hair to be more easily curled. The hair may be rerolled on standard perm rods, blown-out with a hair dryer and round brush for soft waves, or may be set in any other of a myriad of ways. Body waves tend to be used mostly for limp and lank hair to add texture and body (obviously) or to adjust or normalize the wave pattern of hair that is too curly for a client’s taste in its natural state.

THE RIT'S DYE DIP which can be used for either bumping up the bleach knots when a lf is dyed with clothing dye, or removing the clothing dye from the hair..

most of the time when you get them black colors its clothing dye.. i would probably do the rit's dye remover DIP, b/c it can jump start the process without over bleaching the knots..b/c you can keep doing it and then burn them knots out and then all the hair falls out.. so remember that in the future.. but i mircowave the water hot for about 2 min, then add about a tablespoon or two to a bowl of hot water and DIP IT IN AND OUT.. don't soak it b/c i think its like cooking hair, and i'm just not down with that b/c of the damage it could cause to the hair shaft.. and that's what they instructions say, but no! i dip in and out and you can see the color rinsing out with each dip.. then when the water temp goes down, then i would maybe soak for only a very limited amount of time like a 1 or 2 min.. then remove and condition.. then you can do the loreal super blonde lightening kit it will kick them knots up and you'lll be done with it.. but DON'T brush too hard with a small brush b/c you can push the dye thru the holes and dye the roots.. so brush lightly over the area, and leave it for about 1 5 to 20 min and rinse and condition again.. SEAL THEM KNOTS AFTERWARDS.. When using this method the just bump up the knots and removing the clothing dye for knots only, turn the cap inside out and just dip the cap in a bowl of this mixtures.. for removing the clothing dye from the hair, dip the entire unit in the mixture and you will get the benefit of both the hair color and the knots.. deep condition and proceed to either air dye the hair, or proceed with bleaching the knots..

With the loreal super blonde kit it comes with the blue powder mix and a tube of the blonde lightener, to ensure that you don't color the lace or get the residue of orange from the blonde tude, use just a little of that and more of the blue powder, the lotion and a little bit of the blonde tube ligtener just for thickening up the mixture, but less is better b/c the blue powder and lotion an get the job done.. watch it but i've found that at least 20 minutes will lighten the knots with this combination, altho the instructions will say 30 min. and i've done that as well..
