One of the most beloved styles many naturals rock beautifully is sexy, soft curls from Flex Rods and for good reason. They are ideal for several reasons but one of the best is the it requires no heat to create and they yield perfect spiral curls much easier than other methods. Flex Rods are flexible long rollers which create sleek spiral curls on all hair textures. They come in different sizes to give varying curl sizes and widths and are easy to use.
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.
Flex rods are best achieved on freshly washed hair (as most styles) and flex rods is a protective style that lasts as long as you care for it nightly and gives two or more very different textures a uniform and smooth look on any hair type.

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 Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti‑Breakage Serum for shine and the ORS Olive Oil Wrap Set Mousse for hold. Now, place the end of your hair on the end of the flex rod and wrap it around to secure it. Slowly roll the flex 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.
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.

Your nighttime routine should concentrate or protecting the curls. You can do this by covering with a satin bonnet, pineappling or sleeping on a satin pillowcase (if you don’t move a lot at night) to preserve the style for several days. If you see a section (or the entire style) that is losing its curl or got wet, lightly mist with some leave-in, reapply the flexi rod at night and unravel in the day to keep the style going even longer.
