Flexi-Rods @ 4 Weeks Post…

I can’t believe I’m 4 weeks post already and my new growth is extremely manageable. Let’s dive into how my wash day went.

[1]   Scalp massage with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil with a couple drops of peppermint oil
       (warmed) for 5mins. Applied EVCO on the length of my hair. On the last 4inches of my 
       ends I applied Creme of Nature Intensive Conditioning Treatment. From my review here 
       this is my preferred product to pre-poo with after doing styles that may end up frizzy.
       I rocked a loose braid-out last week. I went under my heat cap for 20mins. While rinsing
       out my hair my hair especially my ends felt so moisturized and silky.
[2]   Shampooed with Crème of Nature Moisture & Shine Shampoo
[3]   Applied Aphogee 2 mins reconstructor for 2mins and rinsed.
[4]   Deep Conditioned with my old faithful of Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair            Mask for 40mins under my heat cap.
[5]   Wrapped my hair in a Tshirt for 10mins to absorb the excess water.
[6]   Applied my leave in’s of Aussie Moist Conditioner, Herbal Essences Split End Protector 
       and sealed with Hot Six oil.  Since I was going out I put my hair in 11 Flexi-rods and I 
       rolled it how I used too when my hair was much shorter.

I went under my hooded dryer for 1 hour.

I ended up not going out anymore so I just left my hair and slept in the flexirods. Since the rods were rolled differently it was easy to sleep in.  I actually left them in for another day since I wasn’t going out. The rods were in for 2 whole days.
[7]   On the 3rd day I applied Hot Six oil on my palms as I unraveled the curls.

As you can see these curls aren't dropping anytime soon so I’m stuck at Neck Length for the time being. Later in the day the curls set like if I had rolled them like a spiral which surprised me.  I also like the fact its not rubbing on my shoulders and the curls will last much longer. It’s nice to let my hair hang without adding any tension of scrunches because I usually bun or braid my hair. I’m hoping these curls last the entire week.

I'm still shocked as to how much curls rolling my flexi-rods this way gave me.

How was your last wash day & Spiral or rolled right up: Which do you prefer for Flexi-Rods?

    1. Hey Stoney, I still use those products however I ran out. I recently just replaced them. The Neutrogena DC is great but alil pricey for the amount of product you get.

  3. Your hair looks great, Tomi! I always just roll mine up--- never spiraling them. I think I'm gonna try spiraling them with the smaller rods next time!

    And I've gotta try that Neutrogena Triple Moisture Mask when I get off my no-buy.

  5. Great roller set! I definitely have to get more fexi rods to achieve a look similar to thus. I only use a few (6) and it give nice bouncy curls, but not spirals like yours.

  6. Wow Tomes, you've truly mastered the flexi rod. Loving the curls a lot. I wonder what it looked like after a few days, did the curls get looser and bouncier?

    Looking good girl, keep up the good work.
