1 Curling synthetic hair with hot water

  • Moisturize your synthetic hair. Spray a little cream moisturizer on the palms of your hands. Rub your hands together, then apply the moisturizer to your synthetic hair. The moisturizer will help keep the synthetic hair curly. You can also use olive oil instead of cream moisturizer. Curl the hair onto the perm rod.
  • Determine how big you want your curls to be and arrange several perm rod sizes. Divide your hair into small sections and curl them on the perm rod. Cover the ends so that the hair is tightly wrapped around the rod. Do this until you have curled all of your hair onto the perm rod.
  • Try changing the size of the perm rod to get different-sized curls. For a more natural look, make the curls bigger and looser near the neck and back of the head. Use smaller rods to curl the curls closer to the face, making them smaller and tighter. Dip the perm rod in hot water.
  • Fill a cup 2/3 full with water and heat it for about 1 minute. Carefully dip each perm rod with hair into the hot water and keep it in the cup for about 15 to 20 seconds. Take the perm rods out and dip the other rods in one by one.
  • If your water cools, reheat it and continue dipping the perm rods. Always be careful when handling hot water. If the cup is too hot to handle, wait for it to get comfortable before picking it up by hand. Let the hair dry. Leave your hair in the perm rods and allow them to cool and dry completely.
  • Depending on how much hair you wrap around each curling iron, they may dry quickly or take all day to dry. Wear a protective cap if you want to sleep with your perm rods so your curls can stay in place all night. You can blow dry your hair if you don't have much time. Just make sure the hair dryer is on the lowest setting.
  • Remove the perm rod. Once the hair is completely dry around the perm rods, gently remove them. When pulled, the curls may be tight and bouncy. Ignore them if you want them to cling to the area near your head. If you want your curls to look softer or more voluminous, run your fingers through your hair. You can also break your curls into smaller curls. This will make them look softer and add volume to your hair.

2 Curling synthetic hair with a curling iron

  • Determine if you can curl your hair. If you use synthetic hair extensions or wigs, read the product label to see if it can be heated. The label should tell you how much heat the synthetic hair can handle if you are unsure if they can handle the heat or you want to curl your weave, test curling a small section of hair to see if it will melt.
  • To test if synthetic hair will melt, make sure you choose hair that is slightly hidden so that even if it does melt, it won't draw attention to itself. Part your hair and heat your curling iron. Decide how big you want your curls to be, and divide your hair into sections.
  • If you want small curls, divide your hair into many sections. If you want big curls, divide your hair into sections. Use a clip to secure your hair to your head. Turn the curling iron on the lowest setting, which may be a heat setting (or "1" setting).
  • If you are perming extensions or a wig, place or secure your hair on a mannequin head. Spray your hair with water. You need to wet your hair so that every part is completely wet but not dripping.
  • You can wet your hands and run your fingers through your hair or spray your hair with a spray can until it is completely wet. Moistening the chemical fiber hair will prevent it from melting and help it stay curly.
  • Curl every part of your hair. Wrap a preheated curling iron around a piece of wet synthetic hair and curl it. Hold the curler in place until the hair starts to feel warm. Gently slide the curler out of the curler.
  • Continue to curl the rest of the hair. If you want a tighter curl, hold the curl in place on your head until it cools completely. This will also help the curl retain its shape for longer.

3 Curling synthetic hair with pins

  • Separate and straighten a small section of hair. Gather a small section of hair and run a comb through it to remove any tangles. Turn the flat iron on the lowest setting (usually around 250-300 degrees Fahrenheit) and once the iron is hot, use it to iron the hair. Continue to iron the section with the flat iron until the section is smooth and straight.
  • Each section will eventually become a curl. For many small curls, keep the sections small. It would be best to ensure that these sections are not too large or the pin clips will not hold the hair. Use a flat iron to curl your hair.
  • Turn the flat iron to the lowest setting and run it through the straightening strands. Curl the hair back and away from your face so the strand curls onto the flat iron. Do this slowly to curl the hair. Keep the flat iron temperature low so as not to melt your chemical hair.
  • Curls don't have to be perfect. You get a basic curl shape that you want to curl and pin on your head. Pin the curls to your head. While the curl is still warm, wrap it around your index finger.
  • Gently slide the curl off your fingers and hold it between your thumb and index finger. The curls look like flat, round hair. Bring the curls to your scalp and secure them to your head with small metal bobby pins.
  • If you want the curls to stay longer, you can spray the curls with hairspray before wrapping and securing them. Pin up the rest of your hair and let the curls sit overnight. Straighten, curl and secure the rest of your hair.
  • You may find it easier to curl and secure the hair closest to your temples. This will keep the hair away from your face. Once you have all of your synthetic hair pinned, let them rest on the pins overnight or at least for a few hours. Remove the pins and run your fingers through your curls.
  • For a more natural look, you can place your fingers between the curls to separate them and give your hair more volume.

4 Summary

Synthetic hair has many benefits, but it is notoriously tricky to curl. That's because synthetic hair is plastic and will melt in the heat. If you want to change your style and curl your synthetic wigs, extensions or human hair weaves, just keep the heat low, dip your hair in hot water, or use clips to hold the curls. You'll find that with a little care, your synthetic hair will stay beautifully curly.
