2.6 F-light movement

Rod size is an inch but will open to around 2 inch in the form of wave. Will be straight the moment you cut it to around two inches. Other waves in general cut little less as compared to this type.

2.7 G-Light Bend

2.8 H-straight

This is just like a straight pencil. This is certainly not preferred style for men. If left open will simply stand straight giving it volume.

Other factors affecting your selection of curl or wave

When permed and neutralized, the human hair is never true to the rod size. The hair will always open and the finished curl will always be larger than the actual rod size.

Also, the hair color has a profound, direct influence on how far the wave or curl will open. Darker hair will not open or loosen as much as the lighter hair. As a result, the finished curl will vary depending on the hair color.

The black family will not open as much as the browns. As for the blonds and reds, we don’t recommend curly hair styles due to the degradation to the integrity of the hair during the perming process.

If you prefer curls in your red or blond shades, we recommend using synthetic hair.
