If wanting spiral curls, women traditionally resorted to setting their hair on plastic or foam rollers, or resorting to curling small sections of hair with a curling iron or curling wand. Neither option was perfect for all natural hair or relaxed hair but even worse for transitioning hair that deals with at least two very different textures. Flexi rods became the solution to creating smooth/sleek spiral curls for transitioners.
JourneyTo WaistLength shares an easy-to-follow video on creating sexy, soft and long-lasting flexi rods spirals. Here's how she did it.
Shampoo- VO5 Moisture Milks Balancing Shampoo
Deep Conditioner- Aussie Moist 3 min miracle
Soft Hood Dryer
Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti‑Breakage Serum
ORS Olive Oil Wrap Set Mousse
Creme of Nature Leave-in Conditioner
30 Flexi Rods
First, split your hair into 4 sections for easier manageability. Take a square inch (or any small amount you prefer) of hair from each section and spritz with water and apply the leave-in conditioner. Brush hair to fully smooth hair, to disperse product and keep your hair stretched and detangled.
Apply the coconut milk serum for shine and the mousse for hold. Now, place the end of your hair on the end of the flexi rod and wrap it around to secure it. Slowly roll the flexi rod and smooth the hair up to the root of the hair. Make sure to use the remainder of the flexi rod to close it by bending it up to keep hair on the flexi rod and in place.
Repeat the process on the rest of your head spritzing hair with water that may have dried slightly. When you’re finished you can air dry or use a hooded dryer then sleep with a satin bonnet. For the next day, make sure that your hair is 100% dry before you unravel each flexi rod (in an outward motion) slowly making sure not to disturb the curl pattern and cause frizz.
After all flexi rod are removed, apply the coconut milk serum for extra shine and to reduce frizz. Take each curl and carefully separate it where it naturally wants to fall and to your liking and coil back the curls with your fingers.
