Flexi-Rod/Perm Rod Set

So I've had a bag of flexi rods laying around the house that I haven't had the chance to test out & I'm working remote at home this week so I thought, why not give them a try? :)

Beauty Supply Store $7.99
Yesterday was a wash day so I washed my hair with my favorite shampoo, Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Shampoo. I was also desperately in need of a deep conditioner treatment so after shampooing, I applied Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair's Deep Treatment Masque


After applying the deep conditioner, I covered my hair with a plastic cap and let it sit for about 45 minutes as I did some things around the house. FYI: This deep conditioner can be used as a leave-in for extremely dry, damaged hair. 

I rinsed out the deep conditioner and did a ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) rinse. I do these about once a month, it really helps to remove any excess buildup & define my curls! For my rinse, I mix 1/3 cup of ACV with a quart of water. I leave this in my hair & don't rinse it out for extra conditioning purposes.

So with freshly washed hair, I then began to put the flexi rods in my hair. I sectioned my hair into 3 sections and from there took small pieces of hair, applied my leave in Cantu Shea Butter Leave- In Conditioning Repair Cream & then followed with a small amount of Organic Root Stimulator Twist & Loc Gel to hold the curl. I took the piece of hair and wrapped the tip of my hair around the rod and rolled it upwards towards my roots.
Walmart/ Beauty Supply Stores $4.99
Beauty Supply Store $3.99


I don't know the size of the flexi rods and the perm rods that I used. I used the orange flexi rods (about 35 before I ran out :( ) & the purple perm rods(about 15)
Took me about 2 hours to do this (what was I thinking???) lol

I am trying to refrain from using heat so instead of sitting under the dryer, I slept with the rods in my hair (it was extremely uncomfortable lol) and it was dry the next morning.

Overall I was pleased with the results! I ended up pinning up one side. Hopefully this style lasts me all week! :)



Have a blessed day curlfriends! :)
