Flexi Rod Set on Dry Hair





Last night I tried a flexi rod set on dry hair. I had been air drying my hair all day in a bun and decided I wanted to do something with it. I looked at all the flexi rods I have that I rarely put to use and I gave them a try. I moisturized, sealed, and detangled my hair with Elasta QP Olive Oil and Mango Butter Moisturizer and Grapeseed Oil. I then set my hair using 1 inch rods for the back of my hair and smaller (I don't know the exact sizes) rods for the front of my hair. I used 12 flexi rods in total (six on both sides of my head).





 I didn't have enough of one size of the flexi rods so that is why I used three different sizes. When I took the rods out in the morning it was pretty obvious that I used different sized flexi rods. But it was all good, I still liked how it came out! Looking at the different curl/wave patterns I think I would've liked the style even better if I used the blue rods all over my head...maybe even the purple ones all over my head--but the orange rods gave me curls/waves that were too tight.










I did record how I did this and I will post it here on the blog as soon as I edit it! I'm glad I found another way to achieve heatless curls!

Oh and by the way flexi rods are NOT comfortable to sleep in at all!

    I'm not that good in using flexi rods,although i own 40 of them, thats why i prefer my new curlformers.

    P.S could you please turn the last pic around? thanks :)

    1. Thank you! It didn't even show up as rotated when I posted. Lol! Well i think it's fixed now. Thanks for letting me know.

      I've never tried curlformers before. Maybe that will be something to try in the future!

  3. Your curls came out very nicely I think, never mind they aren't uniform.

  4. Your Flexi Rods came out great, almost like your Bantu Knots curls. I make sure the rods on the side of my head aren't as tight and i sleep like a baby.

    1. Thank you! I don't think it had anything to do with the tightness, it may have been because i used 12 of them. lol

  5. Oh I love sleeping in the flexi rods. As long as I have a tight enough satin cap they don't move and it feels like squishy stuff on the side of my head lol.
