Co-Wash Day: Flexi- Rods @ 4 Weeks Post

The initial plan was a full wash day which was to comprise of prepooing (pre-shampoo treatment) with a protein conditioner and deep conditioning with a moisturizing conditioner but that didn't happen and opted to co wash instead.
Flexi-rods @ 4weeks post

[1]   Scalp massage with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (warmed) for 2mins.
[2]   Deep Conditioned with a moisture and protein conditioner which were ORS Hair Mayo 
       (protein) and Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist (moisture) for 45mins and rinsed with cold 
       water.  This helps seals in the moisture that you just added via your deep conditioner 
       and closes the hair cuticles.
[3]   My scalp was itchy so I shampooed with CON Moisture & Shine Shampoo once.
[4]   Co-washed with Aussie moist 3min deep conditioner. Left the product on my hair for 
       2 mins and rinsed.
[5]   Wrapped my hair in a T-shirt for 30mins. Applied my leave in conditioner’s of Aussie 
       Moist Conditioner, Herbal Essences Split End Protector (ends only) and sealed with 
       coconut oil.
I used my purple, blue and grey rods for this flexi-rod set. I used a total of 13 flexi rods to achieve this look. Surprising the rods weren't very comfy to sleep in as previous times.

The following day I applied coconut oil on my palms to separate the curls. I was heading out to my goddaughter's baby christening, so I fluffed and ran through the door.

It was nice to wear my hair down without any tension being pulled into one direction or the other. The following day my hair started to frizz a lot but I still loved it. 
9 hours later my flexi-rods are still cute
By the third day I placed my hair into a low pony tail.  I need to address my moisture levels which have dropped since my relaxer touch up and I know who the culprit is.

  2. Your hair came out great, you make me want to pull out my flexis! How do you preserve your curls at night?

    1. Take them out Harlem. I simply pin the sides and back up with bobbi pins. I tie my hair down with my satin scarf loosely and fluff in the morning.

    2. that sounds much better than the pineapple method.
