Flexi Rod Set

A New Hairstyle for Wash Day

I finally caved and washed my hair. Instead of doing the regular twist out, I decided to try something different.

I bought a set of flexi rods when I was transitioning. I had gotten to the point where I couldn't wear my hair straight anymore because my roots were taking over! The thing is, I only used the flexi rods one time but the results were great!! Here's what it looked like....

Nice, right?!? I didn't know half the stuff then that I know now, so I figured why not give this another whirl. I couldn't quite remember what products I used during that time so I had to pick products I thought worked best for me now. The products I used were:
    Products I used on my natural hair for a flexi rod set.
  • Design Essentials Curl Cleanser Shampoo
  • Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner
  • It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin
  • Influance Natural Oil
  • Beautiful Textures Moisture Butter
  • Design Essentials Defining Creme Gel
My natural hair rolled in flexi rodsI used the same formula for wash days as I normally do (see here for pics) except when it was time to twist my hair, I put in flexi rods. Before rolling, I sprayed each section of hair with the leave-in conditioner, followed by a little oil, then creme gel. Next, I wrapped each section of hair around a flexi rod until my whole head was complete. As I was putting the rods in, I could tell I probably should have used setting lotion. Since I'd just washed my hair, I didn't want to use too many products. I wanted to make sure I wouldn't have to wash my hair before hitting my 2 week mark for hair washing.

The final results of the flexi rod set on my natural hairHere's the finished product! Overall, I think it turned out great. The only problem I had was that it wasn't as polished as it could have been. It was very frizzy and didn't last as long as I know it can. It was also very dry. I tried to put moisturizer in, but it was hard to do that without making it more frizzy than it already was. For the amount of time I kept the style, it looked good!

The next hair post I'll be doing is I did was about what I did to revamp this rod set after it got too out of control (frizz-wise).

What do you guys think??

  1. A can of oil sheen works well for dry hair if you're wearing a style that you don't want to frizz out by using a regular moisturizer. I usually do a light spray every morning and go from there.

    1. Thanks for the advice!! I haven't used oil sheen since I've been natural but i do have a canned humidity type spray I use, that might work just as well!! I'll give that a try if I every run into the dry style look again!!

      Thanks for stopping by!!

    1. Thanks so much!! I've developed some patience but not much. I would much rather have someone else do it, but it's great to know how to do my own hair too!

  3. I really like this look! It looks just as good as the pic when you were transitioning! You are doing an awesome job! I've totally been cheating the last few months with keeping mine washed and twisted under a wig!
