This was my first time attempting a flexi rods hairstyle. The results turned out great with the help of LottaBody (Love that stuff!) and I can’t believe that just a few years ago I was completely style challenged and hopelessly dependent on my hair stylist. It felt so good to pull this one off. I always wondered how to use flexi rods, but it really was not that hard. And don’t forget I’m almost 2 years post relaxer (just under 22 months)!!! I’m not going to front, I used way too many flexi rod rollers and was a little scared about how the set would turn out when I was under the dryer… But I promise nobody can tell me anything right now. Lol!
The process was easier than I thought too. I washed and deep conditioned my hair. Next, I filled up a spray bottle (2 parts water and 1 part LottaBody Setting Lotion)and sprayed each section before twisting on a flexi rod. About 3/4 of the way into the set I ran out of the blue ones and starting using the orange ones. Last, I sat under my soft bonnet dryer for a little under 2 hours on warm heat. I’m not sure how all of those rollers made it under the dryer, but I survived! The best part is that my hair held up for a week in record breaking humid weather. The only thing I had to do before leaving out the house was fluff and go. Sooooo happy I found a new transitioning hairstyle!
Check out the pictures below! And I also included pics from a dry flexi rod set that I did back in late May on straightened hair. ETA: Mom, that’s a camisole not my…
As you can see…way too many rollers, lol.
