I can sometimes get a new style right but anything with lots of curls is always risky for me. Sleeping on rollers is not an option. Sitting under a dryer with rollers is not an option. Hot curling is not an option.
So, how do I curl?
A few months ago when I went to Curly Nikki’s meet up, I wanted to do something special with my hair so I decided to try a flexi rod set. The day before the event, I washed my hair, applied Zuresh’s curl enhancing product as my leave in (hate this product by the way).
I used about 48 flexi rods (medium and small) to set my hair. Since I did it early, I figured it would dry by evening. After 5 hours, my hair was surprisingly dry. So, I proceeded to remove he flexi rods and sleep in a satin bonnet.
The next morning the set was looking pretty good. I had to work so by the time the event took place I knew I’d have droopy curls. hmmm not so. I took a few flexis with me to work for good measure:
Yes, I was at work….next.
The Flexi Rod Rescue Style
After the event, I figured I could get an extra day or 2 out of the set. What a disappointment there. Since my hair tends to straighten as it gets toward the ends, I woke up with too many straight pieces.
Not wanting to completely put my hair back into a bun, I decided to transform this 1 day flexi rod style into an Updo. It’s a wee bit frizzy in some areas but it was a decent save:
What do you think? Do you use flexi rods to style your hair? If so, how many days do you get out of the set?
