Achieve Beautifully Styled Hair with DIY Korean Perms at Home


If you’re tired of your regular hairstyle and want to switch things up, a Korean perm might just be the answer. Korean perms are known for creating soft, natural-looking curls that last for months. While getting a professional perm at a salon can be expensive, you can achieve the same results with a DIY Korean perm at home. Here’s how:

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

  • Perm solution and neutralizer
  • Plastic perm rods
  • Comb and sectioning clips
  • Gloves and towel
  • Shampoo and conditioner

Step 2: Prep Your Hair

  1. Wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo to remove any buildup and oils.
  2. Section your hair into small, even sections and clip them in place.
  3. Put on gloves and wrap a towel around your shoulders to protect your clothes.

Step 3: Roll Your Hair

  1. Starting at the nape of your neck, take a small section of hair and comb it through.
  2. Take a plastic perm rod and wrap the section of hair around it, starting at the ends and rolling it up towards your scalp.
  3. Secure the rod in place and continue rolling the rest of your hair in the same way.
  4. Make sure all of your hair is evenly distributed on the rods.

Step 4: Apply the Perm Solution

  1. Put on gloves and open the perm solution.
  2. Apply the solution to each perm rod, making sure to saturate all of the hair.
  3. Cover your hair with a plastic shower cap and let the solution sit on your hair for the recommended amount of time (usually around 20-30 minutes).

Step 5: Rinse and Neutralize

  1. Remove the shower cap and rinse your hair with warm water for at least 5 minutes to thoroughly remove the perm solution.
  2. Apply the neutralizer to each perm rod and let it sit for the recommended amount of time (usually around 10-15 minutes).
  3. Rinse your hair with warm water for another 5 minutes to remove the neutralizer.

Step 6: Style Your Hair

  1. Remove the perm rods and gently towel dry your hair.
  2. Apply a leave-in conditioner or styling product to help define your curls and reduce frizz.
  3. You can choose to air dry your hair or use a diffuser attachment on your hair dryer to speed up the drying process.
  4. Once your hair is dry, use a curling iron to touch up any areas that need more definition.

With these simple steps, you can achieve beautifully styled hair with a DIY Korean perm at home. Remember to always follow the instructions on your perm solution and neutralizer carefully to avoid damaging your hair. Happy perming!
