Can you curl / boil perm Nylon hair? This is a question I get asked a lot!

The answer is YES!

 

Nylon hair takes a curl very easily and can be straightened again just as easily, if needs be.

For normal curls ~ wet the hair with room temperature water. Set in curlers, leave to fully air dry. Once the curlers are removed you will be left with beautiful soft curls and waves.

For boil perming ~ wet the hair with near boiling hot water and then "set" by wetting the hair with ice cold water. Set in curlers, leave to fully air dry. Once the curlers are removed you will be left with tight spiral curls that will hold fast!

Many people have had sucess curling and boil perming saran hair using the same methods but in my personal experience, this can be tricky to do as the saran does not hold a curl as well due to its heavier weight.

 

I hope this helps!
