Started with week old hair stretched hair, added a little Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root butter cream for moisture and sealed with Jamaican black castor oil. I took 1/2 inch sections, started from the ends of my hair and roll upward to the roots. I rolled my hair early morning so the style only had about 5 hrs to set.
|Just woke up, lol!|
|I used almost 40 flexi rods|
* FLEXI ROD RESULTS *
|Didn't really like the final outcome but I was running late, so worked it out and pinned it back on one side!|
Recap: Because of the humidity my hair started to revert and only lasted a couple of hours. I will show more pics in my weekend recap post. The flexi rods are a great way to stretch natural hair without heat but not enough curl definition for me....Didn't yield the bouncy look. Next time I will roll my hair damp, with some sort of setting lotion and let it set overnight!!!
My weekend was not over, on the agenda was church then listening to live music later that evening. Determined to stick with wearing my hair down the whole weekend, after my flexi rod fail I just wanted something easy and minimal, so I went back to old faithful TWISTOUT.
Started by using the Huetiful facial steam attachment to detangle my hair. Wanted to keep my hair stretched but didn’t want to maipulate dry hair.
HAIR TIP: When natural hair is not wet, steam is a great way to dry detangle without using a water based moisturizer.
Before church I applied VERY little Mane n Tail conditioner and Burdock root butter cream to my hair and twisted in 10 sections 5 on each side.
*TWIST OUT RESULTS*
Product build up definitely contributed to my twist out not being as defined. And honestly, after this weekend I remember why I love protective styling. My hair stayed moisturized for a short period of time and at the end of the day my hair was dry as a bone. I can count on one hand in the last year how many times I wore my hair out and dryness was not an issue but then I remembered the last few times was the result of Caruso set. Note to self: steam is top dog in my world.
Have you ever tried a flexi rod set and what products did you use? What do you think of my flexi rod results?
