Using Flexi RodsI'm back!! I had to take a little break but I'm back to share another hairstyle with you guys.
I finally got around to trying this heatless curl/flexi rod technique using this YouTube video (How To: Flexi-Rod Tutorial for perfect heat less curls). I talked about this technique in my Revamping An Old Hairstyle post, but when I used it there my hair wasn't freshly washed hair and I had also twisted my hair before using the flexi rods. From top to bottom the picture on the right shows my hair at each stage:
- Pic one is my pre-wash hair
- Freshly washed hair
- My hair is detangled; pre deep conditioner
- My hair after washing out the deep conditioner
- My hair after using the heatless curl technique
First, let me point out that my left side is thicker than my right. I try to hide it with different hairstyles, but the difference is still noticeable at times. I must also admit that the heatless curl method was very hard to do at first. I wanted to roll my hair up so that when each rod was unrolled the curl would fall in the direction I wanted it to fall in. The curls in the back were much harder to get to, but after a while, I got the hang of it!!
These pictures show how my hair looked as it fell. The first picture was about two days later and the second picture is about five days later.
The last time I used flexi rods, I ended up with a frizzy look. This time I followed my normal wash day routine, except I used Design Essentials Compositions Foaming Wrap Lotion. I liked the style more as it fell, but it was really dry. I attribute the dryness to the wrap lotion because my hair has never been that dry after styling. I ended up spraying my hair with water as I twisted it one night and locked the moisture in with coconut oil. That seemed to get the job done.Have you ladies tried any heatless techniques?
Have you had to battle with the frizziness?
How do you use to combat frizziness?
In other news, my curlBOX came...but they sent it to my NC address!! I got it forwarded this weekend, but I still haven't received it yet. I'm hoping to get it soon so I can try some of the products out and blog about them!! Keep your eyes open for that.
Also, I've created a page for all my hair posts. It's so much easier to lead people to my 'hair page' than to have them search through my year's worth of posts!! Click on the tab above or CLICK HERE! Tell me what you think about it!!
Have a great week you guys!!
