Wash Day: Another Flexi- Rod Set…

I had a photo shoot this weekend and wondered how to style my hair. I wanted to flat iron my hair but with time restraint and since I have never flat iron my hair before I didn't want to rush anything and end up with regrets. What else can blend my new growth and still look cute, say it with me Flexi-Rods lol.

[1]   Detangle my hair with Mane n Tail detangler sprayed on my roots. I find I need this 
       product once I’m passed 10weeks post prior to washing my hair, but not during the week 
       or post wash day. According to my bestie this is a girl’s hair bestfriend.
[2]   Scalp massage with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil with a couple drops of peppermint oil 
       (warmed) for 1min.
[3]   Deep Conditioned with my Queen Helene Cholesterol mixture on dry hair for 45 mins 
       under my heat cap and rinsed.
[4]   Co-washed with Aussie Moist Conditioner.
[5]   Wrapped my hair in a T-shirt for 15mins. Applied my leave in conditioner’s of Aussie 
       Moist Conditioner, Herbal Essences Split End Protector and sealed with coconut oil.

I watched Jay over from Relaxed Thairapy video on the many ways to set your flexi-rods which yield different results. I really loved the beach wave’s results and opted to try that this week.
I used my blue and grey rods for this flexi-rod set. I used a total of 12 flexi-rods to achieve this look. I always use end wrap papers to secure my ends.

I went under my hooded dryer for one hour.  I went to get ready and in another hour, when I unravelled the rods my ends were damp *screams*. I didn't want to ruffle the curls too much to look like a disaster, so I made the best of what I could. Trust me the back wasn't the cutest but the front came out ok.
Photo Shoot Session - Almost perfect natural lighting
The following day I decided to use my moisturizing spray on the last 2 inches of my ends and roll my hair on blue flexi rods. I used 5 rods in total.

The following morning I applied Coconut Oil to separate the curls. Can you believe my ends were not completely dry *sigh*.  Here are the results:
Flexi-Rod Results
The amount of frizz my curls ended up with by the end of the day was just ridiculous. I think I prefer to have curls on my ends as opposed to my entire head. Take a look at my hair at the end of the day.

  1. Flexi rods save the day lol! Very cute and I even love it after the frizz:)

    1. Thx Kendra, I'm loving the curls only on the ends now like the end of day.

  2. Yes ur curls are really cute, and I love ur photo shoot pics :) I also used the detangler but only once to detangle my flexi rods curls too, and it did a really good job, cant wait to use it again.

  3. I love your hair. It gets better every week.

  4. I need to get on the flexi rods train asap!

  5. Your curls look really beautiful, I think I love the frizzy curls the most! x

  6. The curls look really pretty on both days!! What was up with those ends that wouldn't dry? LOL. I am definitely interested in trying the flexi rods. I hate using heat tools on my hair and have been washing my hair more on my own since I work out so this is something I should try....if only I'd take the time to do it!

    1. I normally use the 7" ones but they also come in 10". Give it a try!

  7. I love your curls. Do you think the rolling technique is a hit or miss? Thank you for the shoutout!

    1. Since my ends weren't dry its hard to tell. I'll give it another try

  8. Your flexi-rod sets always look so good! Love it!

  9. You are gorgeous! I STILL haven't picked up flexi-rods! I keep telling myself that I'm going to ... I actually think I have them in a cart on!

  10. Very nice Tones! I like um lol

  11. Lovely curls. I like it!
