My parents surprisingly traveled up to visit moi so I have not had the chance to finish editing the tuck and roll and the flexi rod twist out set video tutorials. I am hoping to finish these by the end of the week. Nevertheless, I could not leave you all hanging in suspense! I took plenty of pictures of the flexi rod twist out set I said I was going to do in a previous post. This was my first attempt and I am very satisfied with the results!
Here is my hair after removing the tuck and roll style:
I forgot to take a picture of me with my flexi rods but you will be able to see those in my upcoming tutorial. I used smaller rods in the back of my head and increased the size of the rods as I moved up my head using only my leave-in conditioner on damp (not wet) twists. I used one rod for every 3-4 twists. Here is me after putting in the rods and fitting them underneath my bonnet. It was very comfortable sleeping on the rods:
I did the set Friday night. It was very windy and rainy most of Saturday so I just kept the rods in until that evening when the storm had subsided and my daughter wanted to stroll around outside. I didn't separate the curls or anything since I was only going right outside to walk around with my daughter. Here are my curls right after removing the rods:
I slept with a bonnet over my curls and was so excited to see the results of this flexi rod set the next morning...
Here is the next morning before Church. I simply separated the curls. I applied coconut oil on my hands and fingers as I did the separation process to help prevent extra frizziness:
After separating the curls, I added more coconut oil to my hands and proceeded to separating each individual twist as I would for a regular twist out. Here are the final results of my first ever flexi rod twist out set:
I am VERY happy! A curly style to help prolong my twists that did not require any heat at all! In love...
This was several hours later after Church. I wanted to show the volume of the curls in better lighting:
I will see how long this set will last. Last night, I did the pineapple method with my curls and this is the results this morning:
I will post various styles I do on this flexi rod twist set in the upcoming days. I will spritz it with my Shea Moisture Hold and Shine Moisture Mist as needed everyday. So stay tuned for updates!
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a very blessed Monday!
Take care and BE.YOU.Always!
