Twists with Flexi- Rods

Thursday night I decided to try something else with my hair. My hair was already stretched out from twists so all I did was wet my hair a little, used my Carols Daughter Hair Butter which I've had for almost 2 years lol (not fond of the smell) and shea butter. I put medium sized two strand twists in followed by Flexi- Rods. Here are the results....

I think it turned out PRETTY AWESOME! lol I didn't sit under the dryer and like I stated before, there was no way possible for me to sleep on those things lol But it turned out pretty nice! I will definitely visit this style again. I'm also learning how my hair works when attempting styles. This look wouldn't look like this on freshly washed hair, only on already stretched out hair so I'll try that more often.

Flexi- Rod Set

I finally bought flexi-rods this past weekend and styled my hair with them. I bought the red and blue rods which were $3.99 for a pack of 6, so I ended up with 4 packs of blue and 2 packs of red.

To set the curl pattern I used olive oil mixed with eco styler gel on freshly washed hair and sat under my hooded dryer for maybe an hour.

I ended up with this nice curl pattern after taking all the rods out. I just hate that my roots were still so fuzzy!

After separating the curls I just pushed my hair back into a loose puff. I didn't like the way my hair looked without the puff. If anyone decides to try the flexi- rods do the set EARLY lol because you do not want to sleep in those things! I got in my bed for 5 minutes and got right back up to take them out! I don't know if I will try them soon because I'm lazy and it's a lot of work. I wish my hair were longer so the curls could just hang. One day that will be possible.
