Using a Home Perm With Regular Rollers?

Okay so essentially I want my hair to look like I just hot rolled it with minimum effort. My grandma told me that I should use a box perm, and just use my hot rollers (not heated) as though I'm rolling my hair normally. She said that it will make my hair stay in that shape and give me a rolled look instead of a traditional perm look. What is your opinion? Is this true?

I have no idea it this would work or not. I do have a couple of things for you to think about though.
1. The perm solution map damage your rollers. The plastic used may not stand up to the chemical.
2. The clip used, is it a medal one? Will that stand up to the chemical solution or will it stain your hair?

When I was a teen, I used the hard plastic rollers not from a hot roller. I put curling solution on as I rolled my hair.


Continued per instructions but without taking hair down. Dried hair and combed out.

I used plastic foam roller and the picks from metal rollers. Anything metal will react with the perm solution.

I know this is an old post but please be sure not to use anything metal when you are using perm solution. It can cause serious damage

Yes,, you can use regular rollers for your perm,, make sure there is no metal in them, I used this method most of my life,,I use the rollers that have a clip on top, sold at Sally's,, perm comes out great,,
