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.
