Co-Wash Day With Flexi-Rods…

I totally slacked on stretching my new growth last week and I paid for it dearly. The amount of single strands knots were unbelievable. From this moment till touch up day, I will not be 
making that mistake again sigh. Looks like flexirods is going to be my staple for the next couple of  wash days unless I whip out my curlformers.
First day of my Flexi Rods 

I have discussed the many ways to co-wash here and this method is my favourite to do.
[1]Detangled my hair in four section using my Mane n' Tail Detangler. This product is the truth.
[2]Deep Conditioned with my Queen Helene mixture for 30mins under my heat cap on dry hair.
 The amount of slip this DC mix gave me was nothing short of amazing. My strands felt so revived  and hydrated while rinsing out the product.
[3]Co-washed with V05 moisture milks and rinsed.
[4]Wrapped my hair in a T-shirt for 1hour to absorb the excess water.
[5]My leave in conditioner’s were Mane n Tail detangler sprayed lightly,  Elasta QP Leave in H2,
Aussie Moist Conditioner and sealed with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.  Detangling was a breeze.
Flexi Rods in my hair
[6]I put in 8 flexirods to the back and 3 flexirods to the front of my hair using end wrap papers. Since my wash day finished much more earlier than I expected I let my hair air dry during the day and
slept in the rods.  My nights rest was so much more comfortable. I put in the blue flexi-rods at the points of how I sleep as in, in the back and sides and it was very comfy.

The following day I applied Jamaican Black Castor oil on my scalp. I pulled apart the curls with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil in my palms. Next time I’ll use all blue rods since I like the finer curl pattern this 
Day Two Flexi Rod Curls
Overall my hair was moisturized, clean and my new growth stretched. I’ll say that a win win for my 
wash day this week
Day Three Flexi Rods Curls
