Heatless Curls – Flexi Rod Set

I wanted to play in my hair this week. On wash day, I was tempted to try out a wash and go, but my hair is not curly towards the front, so that was out of the question. As I was looking for some oil to seal my hair with, I found these!


 I almost forgot I had these babies! Last time I used them was sometime last summer. Time for a flexi rod set!


 I just love having perfect curls without the heat. This is also a great style to use when transitioning from relaxed to natural.


Products Used: Red flexi rods (About 30), Argan Oil, Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, Olive Oil Eco Styler Gel.


I did this look on damp hair and it took about 1 1/2 hours to set the curls. I used small sections and made sure to smooth the product through each section. I only used I little bit of product. I didn’t want hard, crunchy curls. I let the curls air dry overnight. I just put a satin bonnet over the flexi rods and went to sleep. These things are not the easiest things to sleep in.


I loved the way they turned out. Hopefully I can get this set to last for five days. I’m planning on maintain this style by using the pineapple method at night, then fluffing out my curls with oil in the morning.

Thank you so much for reading!

    I just did a flexi-rod set for the first time on Saturday and today is Thursday and my curls are still popping. I love a flexi-rod set and I plan to do it more often.
