Wash Day with Flexi-Rods…

Don’t you just love a hassle free wash day, well let’s dive into it.

[1  Prepooed with Coconut oil mixed with a couple drops of peppermint oil on my scalp and
       did a scalp massage for 5 mins. Then added KeraPro Restorative Intensive Treatment 
       mixed with Extra Virgin Olive Oil on the length of my hair for 30mins under my heat cap.
[2  Shampooed with a diluted mix of Aussie Moist Shampoo with some drops of
       peppermint oil and followed up with CON Moisture & Shine Shampoo. I can’t wait to 
       get rid of this Aussie shampoo, very disappointing.
[3]   Deep Conditioned with L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm for 35mins under my 
       heat cap.  First impressions: I was surprised how moisturized my hair felt after rinsing it 
       out because this conditioner didn’t sink into my strands, so far so good.
[4  Wrapped my hair in a t-shirt for 30mins to absorb the excess water
[5  Applied my leave in conditioner's of Aphogee Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer, 
       Herbal Essences Split End Protector (ends only), Aussie Moist Conditioner and Coconut 
       Oil to my hair and detangled really easy although I’m 5weeks post.
[6  Let my hair air dry, then applied Jamaican Black Castor Oil on my scalp and moisturized 
       my hair with Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter and sealed with Hot Six Oil.

Since I was going out to dinner with one of my closest girlfriends I decided to have some curls and decided to do a pony tail with flexi-rods on the ends as well as 4 flexi-rods at the front of my hair. Since I had already moisturized and sealed I just sprayed my ends with water and rolled the hair unto the rods with end wrap papers on the ends. To see what I wore out to dinner click here.

I pulled out the hair carefully without distorting the curls and here are the results.

After dinner my curls had dropped but I figured that would have happened since I didn’t use a setting lotion or any other holding product to ensure the curl remained the same.

  1. The curls you got from the flexi rods are gorgeous! They still look great after dropping a little. My main problem with flexi rods is I can't get the style to hold for very long! x

    1. I need to invest in a setting lotion or some form of holding product, which may do the trick and the curls last longer

  2. Oh those curls are too cute! My flexi-rods have become play toys for my kiddies. I'm afraid that by the time that I find all of them they'll have jelly and glitter all over them. Ha-ha!

  6. Oohh, I never heard of Loreals Erasing Balm! I need to check that out! Most of the other things I use, so I can see our hair may agree with some of the same products!

    Thanks for sharing doll!!
